DIY Barstool Desk

DSC_0890

I must preface this post by saying something before I introduce you to my new DIY barstool desk.  You may be confused by my color choice for the desk. Like ummmm Liz, the desk matches the walls. Well, this week those walls are changing! I have a painter {a very lovely friend of mine} coming to paint our house this week {living room, dining room, kitchen} So this desk was painted with those changes in mind. More updates on that later. I’m so excited for change in our home! For more updates on the behind the scenes of our updates be sure to follow me on Instagram {here} & Facebook {here}. & I will take better pictures of my desk when the walls are painted, but I just couldn’t resist showing you my new lovely little desk…

I started out by making one of our guest bedrooms my workspace. Over time I found that I hated being secluded into a bedroom while all of the action was happening out in our living room, I rarely used the office & the desk that we had just became a spot to set stuff on. So the office turned back into a guest bedroom & I was using the dining room table or the couch. One of my good friends recently gave me some barstools that she no longer wanted & I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. My plan was to make a simple DIY desk with the barstools with some boards, screws, stain, & paint. I wanted a slim desk that would fit in front of our front window in our living room, so I could work with a view. This barstool desk was the perfect solution.

This little desk was quite simple to make. We measured out how long we wanted the desk & then placed a stool at each ending point. We cut our boards from Lowes to that exact length. We lined the boards up across the stools & attached using one screw on each end of the board for each board. After the boards were attached I painted the barstools frappe by valspar {You could choose to paint the stools beforehand} I stained the boards special walnut by Minwax.

What do you think of my little desk? We are thinking about adding shelves onto the sides, but for now this little guy is my new favorites spot in the house. I have been enjoying using it & it really is the most handy thing I have built in a while. You can see my desk chair makeover {here}. Do you have a desk in your home? Where is yours located? I’m loving my desk with a view out of the window. In fact I am sitting at my desk right now as I type this looking out at the rain. I can’t wait to show you updates on the painting of our living room, can you guess what color we will be going with? Be sure to find me on Facebook & Instagram for daily updates on our progress. I hope you have a great day! xx

    O Sistema Steel4build utiliza técnicas de produção com capacidade de
    fabricar edifícios de qualidade superior. A base
    do sistema é uma estrutura de alta
    resistência, aço galvanizado resistente á corrosão,
    elementos desenhados e fabricados
    sendo totalmente testados e aprovados, que podem ser combinados criando uma
    ampla variedade de formas de construção e devem ser adaptadas para atender
    a
    todas as necessidades do cliente.
    Custo-Beneficio
    O Sistema Steel4build permite economizar 50% do custo de mão de obra
    em todo o
    processo de construção, que traz uma significativa economia de custo total,
    especialmente onde existe falta de trabalhadores qualificados.

    Isso torna-o numa
    solução ideal para: alojamento social e alojamento estudantil, bem
    como projetos
    comerciais e hotéis.
    Capacidade
    A indústria da construção internacional fornece atualmente o mercado de alojamento
    em milhões de habitações por ano, criando um
    claro potencial para a tecnologia de
    construção modular ” lacuna a preencher “, objetivo que os fabricantes
    até agora,
    ainda não conseguiram alcançar.
    No entanto, ao contrário de outros sistemas,
    Steel4build é realmente adequado para
    a produção de volume. O Sistema Steel4build, graças
    à experiente cadeia de
    fornecimento da qual derivam seus módulos, é potencialmente capaz de produzir
    centenas de módulos de alta qualidade por mês.
    STEEL4build – Development
    Tecnologia
    A tecnologia Steel4build utiliza técnicas de produção de referência com capacidade
    para fabricar edifícios de qualidade em quantidade.

    Os elementos de montagem são feitos de aço galvanizado perfilados a frio, resistentes
    à corrosão, paredes, pisos e telhado com isolamento segundo as normas de
    construção vigentes para som e desempenho térmico.
    A estrutura pode ser projetada
    com base na arquitetura do edifício e adotar conceito de pré-fabricação.

    Montagem
    A montagem é simples, rápida, segura e em sistemas de
    fundação padrão. O projeto
    permite a montagem rápida, com baixa tecnologia, sem falha dos mecanismos de
    segurança. As unidades são completamente à prova de intempéries para que os
    interiores permanecem protegidos durante todo o processo de montagem .

    Os
    módulos podem também ser totalmente equipados antes da chegada no local.

    Revestimento
    A estrutura fornece suporte para as partes externas
    e comuns, tais como
    revestimentos, sistemas de telhado , escadas , corredores,
    varandas, espaços comuns
    e assim por diante . Um sistema de conexões padrão da indústria de
    construção
    permitem que todos os componentes se interliguem e com acessórios para fazer a
    interface com as fundações, sistemas de revestimento , coberturas , varandas e
    unidades de corredor sendo compatíveis para um ajuste perfeito.

    O Sistema Steel4build é compatível com a tecnologia de suporte de revestimento
    atual , desde suporte de tijolos a paineis de revestimento

    elétrica e hidráulica poderam ser montadas e inspecionadas no local.

    STEEL4build – Development
    Em Obra
    Rapidez
    Construção pré-fabricada é de até 40-60% mais rápido
    do que os métodos
    tradicionais de construção com prazos de entrega totalmente controláveis
    e previsíveis
    Economia
    Enquanto a construção modular tendeu no passado a ser mais caro do que o tijolo &
    betão, hoje isto é geralmente compensado por um menor tempo de construção
    e uma
    redução proporcional do custo de execução da obra .
    A Tecnologia inovadora do
    Sistema Steel4build reduz o custo de construção modular,
    trazendo ainda maiores
    economias.
    Menor dependência de mão de obra qualificada
    O trabalho efetuado em fábrica, permite que em obra pode ser usado pessoal semiqualificado
    durante a construção, reduzindo a dependência da cada
    vez mais escassa
    mão de obra qualificada .
    Segurança
    A construção modular tem provado ser o método mais seguro de construção , porque
    há menos componentes envolvidos do que nos métodos tradicionais.

    Qualidade
    Melhor qualidade:os módulos construidos em fábrica garantem um melhor controle
    de qualidade. Eficiência na produção e confiabilidade também
    são alcançados através
    de menos defeitos ou reclamações .
    Ambiente e Sustentabilidade
    Construção Modular é amiga do ambiente :

    É geralmente necessária menos energia para desenvolver os módulos e na fabricação
    dos componentes.Durante a construção , podem ser obtidas reduções de resíduos no
    local de até 70 % .Redução de tempo no local significa menos incomodo
    para os
    moradores ou empresas vizinhas.
