DIY Built-In Desk with Butcher Block Countertop

Hello and welcome! Today I'm going to show you how we created an 8' long built-in desk in my redesigned home office. I'm giving this once bland catch-all space a jungle-y boho makeover, and I am loving how it's all coming together! Go check out my last post for all the before photos, design details, mood board and more.

One of the first projects we took on in the office is a DIY built-in desk. When I started planning my office, I knew I wanted a desk large enough to have a computer workstation and a drafting & crafting area as well. I also knew that the one wall that butts up to the closet would be the perfect size wall for this new desk.

Once I decided I wanted a desk along that wall, I started searching for desks that would meet my requirements. When nothing seemed right, I started researching built-in desks. I came across this post from Hydrangea Treehouse which served as my jumping off point to create a built-in desk.

Here's how we did it.
