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

    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

    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.

    The places single rich guyus go to find beautiful women arre

    Be honest about yourself is very important to finbd a long-term partner.

    Therefore, men have a better chanche of finding their partner than women. Here are some commonly observed trends
    regarding onlin dating. Both oil andd acrylic can be used to
    create some beautful works of art and the quality you get would depend upon the genius of thhe artist you are purchasing from.
    Of course not all dating onlinee sites will
    be able to deliver all that they promise, and it is alway a good idea to lookk at the daring sites with a skeptical eye.
    Unless you desiire too be a joke. Decency will win better suitors than the rest.

    In European countries, teengers often go out on group dates.
    You aree going to take a few notes that will make your dating profile talk for you.
    If you meet someone online and theey seem like tthe peefect fit,
    tqke the time to get to know tbem rather than rushing in headfirst.
    However, these facts also warn us about the dangers of careless use off Internet.

    Looking for someone to embrace it with. Go through their headlines and then think about
    writing yours.

    Keep things light while still getting to know your date by asking these questions:
    - Where do you want too go on your next vacation? Do the
    men and women on the site seem to bee looking for
    a serious long term relationship or just some casual fun? At the
    end of the day, the dating website you feel most comfortable
    with is up to you; but using such website indexes as a resource can help point
    you in the right direction. Just write enough information about you,
    location, age, interests, hobbies, likes, etc. Putting forth some effort to better
    understand each other now will have long term rewards for
    bogh of you. But is the percepttion of interracial dating London and interracial dating New
    York really that different?

    The role of tthe step-dating partner is to take on the role of a friend, a coach or a mentor
    to thee child(ren), and the main task is to build trust in tthe
    child. The answers to these important questions will help you determine if yyou have truly found the best free dating online for your needs.
    Women were actually givven the right to propose marriage in 1228!
    To succeed at dating annd find a strong, loving relationship,
    you need to understand what really maks a man feel good.

    I cannot overemphasize the importance of a
    winning dating profile, especially for the single person seeking a serious relationship.

    Make your movements slow and deliberate, your gaze
    firm and unflinching,your back straight, chest out and shoulders back.

    Most online daters spot this trick right away, guaranteeing you
    no response. Can you keep up? Go online and browse through some
    of the works of reputed artists where they have recreated landscapes,
    abstract ideas, and flowers. Nowadays people do not go to barr and othrr places to find their special one where they aree
    moving tto a more digital and modern form of dating.

    Very often it is the woman who shows signs of wanting a relationship
    firtst as women tend to attach early on. I believe compatibility plays the greatest role in holding tigether theese couples.

  3. Hi, yes this post is really nice and I have learned lot of things from
    it regarding blogging. thanks.
