Saw it. Pinned it. Did it.

Today I'm linking up with Steph at Beautiful Mess to show you one of the Pinterest projects I actually endeavored to recreate! 
Here's the original Pinterest photo I pinned.
I absolutely loved the idea of this DIY office desk that stretches from wall to wall! 
I wanted it to be recreated so that there would be no table legs for support, so I could easily maneuver my office chair  the whole length of the desk without knocking my knees on any support structures.

Obviously, I had no idea how to do this.
So this should really be called saw it. pinned it. husband did it :)
 The office before.
 Hubby hard at work.
 We decided on a dark oak stain to contrast with the white walls and carpet in the office.
Steven really did a great job! 
And I know, you're dying to see the finished office,
but although the desk is done...I want to wait until the decors in place before I show you.
Sorry!!!

But don't fret, friends. Soon enough! (I hope)

I am so jealous that your husband was able to help you recreate this desk. My hubby isn't so handy when it comes to building things :) Can't wait to see it all finished.
