How We Made a Sit Stand Desk with Drawers

One of the most challenging projects for our steampunk-inspired home office was our sit stand desk with drawers. Have you ever seen one in real life? Yeah, me neither. But why not? We couldn’t think of a good reason, so we made one. 

Hubby did the woodworking and most of the measurements, and I did all of the finishing—staining, chalk painting, and waxing. Together we merged how I envisioned it working with the physics of the real world. 😉

Here’s a video where he walks through the process of how he built the desk.

Here are some pictures for your scrolling pleasure.
