We want to tell you more. It seems so basic, right? However, you know how tricky it can be getting these DIY projects straight and tidy.

My latest endeavor was a simple desk. I thought I would save a TON of money re-creating a desk I saw at IKEA and I couldn’t have been more wrong. During my first attempt, I spent $180 on materials. The IKEA desk was $110. After re-evaluating the project, I returned some of the supplies back to the hardware store and did a little shopping on Amazon. Low and behold, I ended up making the desk for $80 and 2 days worth of work. I do love it, but I wish I had one of Karah’s brilliant tutorials instead of trying it from scratch.
