I'm excited to share this next series with you!
I'm a firm believer in creating fun spaces. I think the space around you says just as much about you as fashion does. This series is going to cover my DIY home office space!
Are you as excited as I am?
I picked up this door a few years ago. I've used it for a few different things around the house. Its been a photo prop, a bulletin board, a Halloween decoration, and now its going to be a Desk.
Today we're going kicking off this series with a DIY desk.
I love the combination of a shabby and industrial look. I don't think it has a name really and most would think it looks like a mess but its my space so it should be something I love!
Here is what I have and what you will want:
1.Vintage closet door
( These tend to be solid wood and not as wide as newer doors.)
2. Iron pipes
( You will need to scrub the crap out of these but the look is worth it.)
3. Glass panel
(I was originally going to use Plexiglas, however it would have been triple the price of glass.)
4.Stain or paint
(Decide based off what look you want.)
I used stain and I spray painted my iron pipes in black.
I had amazing helpers to help with the sanding.
The only thing with sanding vintage furniture is you have to absolutely be careful of led paint Wear protection, I cannot stress that enough.
Here is what mine looked like once the sanding was complete. I did ask that a little of the original white be left on it to help with the rustic look. then I stained it. Once the screw are screwed into place. You'll have yourself an band new or rather repurposed office desk.
Make sure you bookmark us! Tomorrow we're adding a few things from the boutique, as well as starting a new project!
If your a little curious this project cost me about 100.00.
If you are patient you could do it cheaper,
By collecting iron pipes from salvage stores or garage sales! Also by looking for glass and doors on Craigslist.
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
