T-shaped office desk

I needed a large desk that could accommodate means my artsy children so I decided to make this T-shaped desk so we each have our own space. I had certain elements I made specific for items like my printer and my camera bag. For the top I wanted a hard smooth surface that wouldn't leave indentions when writing so I used an epoxy resin. The tips are only attached with command strips so if I ever need to move the desk it will disassemble easily. This was my first big project and love how it turned out. It was a labor of love for sure!

  • Congrats on your first large project! This turned out beautifully! Did you create the design yourself?

    • Thank you! I customized the two side pieces from Ana White to fit items I wanted to store there. The rest I designed myself using measurements of my computer tower and printer. And for the top I wanted it to be a hard surface that wouldn't indent if written on so I used the epoxy resin. The long top part is 9' but the desk was way cheaper than buying for for that big of space:)

  • Definitely worth it. You probably couldn't have found anything this perfect for the space even if you had bought it! Great work.
