We started making this desk because we wanted to provide our son with an art space of his own where he can color and use chalk. He absolutely loved it and so did all the other children who came over. Our son would walk them over to the desk, show them the goodies stored inside, and beam with joy as they sat there and created! It was amazing to watch.
We started getting requests from friends and family so we started to expand beyond that.
These desks are made with poplar, primed, painted (with latex and chalkboard) and protected since they get quite a bit of use. We also have a stool (with a back) that we started creating to go along with the desk.
The styles and dimensions can vary. We can switch the table legs to be more masculine or more feminine depending on the child. We like to include the child's initial on the top to personalize it. We have also included the child's names on the back of the stools to personalize further.
