Handmade Desk {Family Room}

Handy Hubby strikes again!  He made a desk!  After he made our great toy storage shelf, I asked if he could make a desk for our kids to keep in our kitchen/family room.  My daughter does a lot of art projects and second grade now requires a lot of homework (WHY?!!).  Most of this ends up on the kitchen table which poses a problem when we need to eat a meal!  Her art table was getting way too small for much of anything besides a pile of junk that never got used.  So we are now moving that table to the basement, and the Christmas tree is currently in its place.  The space is narrow and I found it hard to find a desk that would really fit the space so Handy Hubby made one!

I couldn't resist waiting until after Christmas to show you but here it is...

Check out the dovetail drawers!

For those interested in details, the base is made of poplar, the top is a butcher block top that we purchased at Habitat Restore  for $25 several years ago for another project but never used.  Handy Hubby joined two pieces together to make it deep enough.  He then finished it with an ebony stain (Minwax). I wanted it to blend well with our kitchen.  The drawer pulls are from Home Depot.  

He did an amazing job, didn't he?  Love my Handy Hubby!
