Farmhouse X Desk

  • August 14, 2016

I built this desk for my sister in law using wood that I got from a 16ft crate that was being thrown away at my job. I used the plans from Shanty2chic and modified the dimensions and added the X in the middle.

  • This turned out great! I like the stain color and think it gives a 'white wash' look.

    • Thank You. Yea I've done some stuff from Ana White also. The porch swing project I have posted is Ana White plans.

  • Awesome job in this! Thanks for including the picture of the crate too- it's cool to see where the wood came from and what you turned it into. The center X adds a really nice continuity to the over all look. Did you build it entirely out of wood from that one large crate?

    • Thanks!! Yes it was built completely out of the wood from the crate and I also built my man cave end table that I have posted on here from the crate wood also.
