My four year old has had more rooms in her first four years of life then I have had in my first twenty. So for the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to make this one SPECIAL. Today I built a modern desk to go with my modern take on Andy’s room from her favorite movie, Toy Story. In the cut list I will provide two different options for a 28″ high desk and 30″ high desk. Both are standard heights for desks, but the latter of the two may be more applicable to your needs as an adult.


Difficulty:
Beginner


Time Required:
Weekend


Cost:
Under $70
