My Craft Room Desk

Since moving into my new house a few months ago, I have been looking for the perfect desk for me to use as a sewing/cutting table.  I couldn’t find one.  There is probably the perfect one out there, but it would probably cost a few pretty pennies.  So, this is what I came up with.

1.  I purchased pre-made unfinished cabinets from Lowe’s.  Like THIS one.
2.  I had a friend cut off the toe kick (the bottom part) to make them closer to desk height rather than counter height.
3.  I applied primer and white glossy paint.
4.  We found this counter top at Ikea.  I love that it doesn’t have a back splash.
5.  I bought the knobs at The Home Depot.  Like THIS one.
6.  I cut some vinyl with my Silhouette machine to decorate the knobs with.

I’m loving what we came up with.  I love the amount of storage.  This is just perfect for what I need.  Now, I still need to finish the sides of the cabinets and I’m on the hunt for the perfect chair.  I also have a few projects in mind for the walls that I hope to show you soon.  What do you think?  Would this work for you?  I am slowly getting my craft stuff organized and out of the boxes.   Now I need to make something.  Anything.

  1. LOVING this!!! This is exactly what I would want for a craft room desk if/when I get one!-it turned out great! Following you now, can’t wait to see all the fun things you create using that desk! 🙂

  2. This is fabulous! Nice job. I have been picturing something like this for myself. Thanks for sharing. I am your newest follower. You have so many great ideas.

  3. Great job! I’ll be doing something like that too for my workspace. Finding cabinets and the table/counter will be a flat door! I linked my office ideas to the Creative Bloggers Party that I’m co-hosting. Have a great week!

  4. Just wondering…did you need to secure your cabinets to the wall at all? I want to make something similar and wasn’t sure if it would be stable without attaching it to the wall. Thanks!

  5. HOLLY,
    MY WIFE WANTS A BENCH FOR CARD MAKING. MOST OF THE PAPER SHE USES IS 12″x12″,and I’d like to put two stacks in each drawer.
    The top I want is Coriander.
    Could you tell me the overall dimensions…..especially front to back, and the inside dimensions of the shallow drawers?
