DIY Rustic Wood Desk with Cedar Log Legs | Part 1 – Inspiration

funky-junky-farm-desk via Candi on Pinterest

Inspired by Funky Junk Interiors 12′ farm desk made from pallets, I dreamed up my own 11′ diy rustic wood desk. I love the look of Donna’s reclaimed pallet desk but decided to go with a wide pine board that we had laying around the yard. For the legs, I wanted something organic and flowing so my sweet man let me use the cedar logs he’s been saving for a couple of years.

When I first shared my idea with Mark, he didn’t think it’d look good but we cut the cedar logs anyway. To his surprise, he really liked the look of the table and it was very stable to boot.

driftwood-heartI live in Maine about 2 miles from the beach where my family spends many days in the sand collecting driftwood, sea glass, shells and other treasures. What I love is that even after you remove something from the beach, it still holds the magic of the ocean. Something, I love to feel in my home.

Recently, I was inspired by this amazing driftwood heart that I pinned on Pinterest. It’s beautiful, contemporary and rustic all at the same time.
