IKEA diy desk – Making it
We just finished putting together an IKEA diy desk. This was such an easy and fun project to work on. We used left over material we had laying around the house to get this beauty done. A couple of 2×4″ pieces, the same dark-colored stain we used on the kitchen countertops, and an IKEA kitchen cabinet panel we ended up not needing from our recent kitchen renovation.
To start the project, we used some 2×4″ pieces to create two bases for the table. We sanded the wood lightly and applied a dark-colored stain to create an imperfect look. We wanted to create a look that mixed rustic with modern. Two pieces of 1×4″ boards connect the two rectangle-shaped bases creating stability and support for the IKEA top.
We sanded and stained the 1×4″ boards to match the two bases and then connected the IKEA cabinet panel from below. And then bam! The office was instantly ready for business. I absolutely adored how it turned out. Now to add a rug, couch, plants, and the list goes on and on. But before we get that all done, we will just sit here and listen to old vinyls and enjoy this sunny winter afternoon.
