So, are you tired of seeing desk/shelving projects around here yet? My work shop room is just about situated the way I want it, so this should be the last one for a little bit.
I decided to move my little industrial style desk to a different spot in the room and put my serger on it instead of the sewing machine. Therefore, a new solution was needed for the sewing machine. Enter two old wooden ladders. One I found in a closet in this house when we moved in, the other I found at a junk store a while back. Happily, they were the same height and perfect for this project.
I laid a board across the top and screwed it on from the bottom side.
I dry brushed it with white, mint green, a bit of orange, and brown.
I painted a few scrap boards to add some more storage options.
I already had the chair on hand, which was the perfect height as well.
Oh, and check it out! I finally got around to painting that cinder block wall to match the other one! While this desk may not be everyone's style, it fits the ticket perfectly for me... sturdy, simple, non-generic, and quite functional. I adore it. (Plus it was free to make, so that's always a major plus!)
Of course, the reason I needed to do this project, was that I had two little Easter dresses that needed sewing...which may have not been finished until five minutes before walking out the door Easter morning...
