My daughter was having a lot of trouble doing her homework in her lap, even with the cute little bean bag lap desk I had made for her and she really needed a desk, however, her room was decorated in a farmhouse style and there was plenty of room to put a desk in there, so I went on Youtube and searched a farmhouse style DIY desk idea that could sit in the corner of the room and eventually house a hutch for her books. I found this awesome little farmhouse desk ide desk idea and it looked pretty easy, so I decided to give it a go. I started the DIY farmhouse computer desk project by gathering my materials which were so affordable. This tutorial on Youtube by @BuildItBetter was an excellent way to really get the feel of what it’s like to go hands-on with the play by play requirements to build this farmhouse desk.
