Hi YHL lovers! I'm sure you're familiar with the awesome double desk John & Sherry built in the office of their last home!
When we moved into our house, I knew I wanted to build something similar for a 12' wall in our office. I used simple white Ikea cabinets as the base and built a rustic plank top and then used copper plumbing parts to add accents and create the door handles!
It was quite a labor of love, but it's exactly what we wanted and needed for our home office!
I have plenty more pictures here
and I just wrote a detailed tutorial here
! I used a slightly different method than John & Sherry to build the plank top, and I have instructions and a full shopping list for the copper pulls & accents on my blog.
In total, everything I used for the desk came out to around $270, and that was truly starting from scratch as I didn't even have screws on hand! :P I'm a newbie with power tools, so my dad did come over to help with the construction of the plank top, but I would say the difficulty level of this project is fairly amateur. The copper pulls are absolutely my favorite part, and they are SO EASY - I kind of want to add them everywhere in my house now
I'm just so excited to finally have an awesome work space in our office!
