Simple 1-Hour Kids Coloring Desk

Easy-Kids-Coloring-Desk-Tutorial

*This project is sponsored by Kreg! Woop Woop!

My daughter and I went through what must be a hundred different desk styles, and none of them would do. Apparently they were all too “busy”…she just wanted a simple desk she could draw and color on. She said she wanted a top and legs, and she wanted it today. Well excuse me… Haha, no she wasn’t saying in an impertinent demanding way, she just figured her carpenter mom could whip up a quick desk for her to color on this afternoon. That is some amazingly big confidence in mama there, so I didn’t want to disappoint.

She just figured her carpenter mom could whip up a quick desk for her to color on this afternoon…

This super simple desk can be whipped up about an hour, so you can be super mom or super dad, and it doesn’t have to take up your entire weekend to do it!

I’m sharing the full tutorial over on BuildSomething, Kreg’s awesome site for build plans.

Check out my other build plans while you are over there! I’ve uploaded quite a few for you. 😉

This project is a bit plain-Jane for my taste, but my kiddo loves it, and it is just what she asked for…so that’s what counts! I may just have to build my own dream desk for my room sometime soon.

*Special thanks to Kreg and Build Something for sponsoring this project! All opinions, and the build plans are my own.

    I don’t have kids but was trying to figure this out in my head. Is she STANDING or SITTING on the top stair? (if sitting does it need to be padded) Also wondered if the edge of the table closest to her tummy was a little bit blunt…perhaps a half round bumper? And lastly about those stairs, they look ripe for pull out drawers or a catch all storage treatment for all of her coloring supplies.

    As always I love your ideas – – wish you were MY mom!

      Lol! I love your questions…you think like me. I have not been able to convince her to change a single thing. Ugh. I keep telling her I can make it better, more comfortable, even order her a special chair…but this kiddo wants what she wants. lol!

        Well then in that case (no pun intended) you nailed it. Looks like you’ve got a true minimalist on your hands.

          LOL! Oh my…one minimalist, one maximalist, and one yet to be determined. Kids…they keep you on your toes. 😀

    Hi Ursula, thank you for your website, I love the plans, printables, photography, color schemes & everything. I’m also a handy(ish) mom with a Kreg, saws & a variety of other tools, & don’t ever have the budget for anything. I was starting to feel strange about being handy around the house, as my husband is not handy (in any way, shape or form, lol), but I’m glad I’m not alone in my love for tools. I look forward to creating these projects, thanks again.

      Thanks!! You are definitely not alone! 😀 I’m the handy one in this relationship, and I decided a long time ago that there are some huge perks involved… lol! Glad to have you following along.
