My nephew wanted to make this desk for his son, who is 9, and loves the Steelers, so a simple paint scheme and some decals, and voila! He really loved it when he got it on Christmas morning. Birch plywood for the carcase and the drawer fronts, the drawers are 1/2 ply, and no face frame. Simple, simple. Bought the turned legs from Lowes. Finished it with poly, 4 coats on the top.

The logo’s are actually vinyl stickers. you can get them off the internet, or at a flea market. Google stickers for Steelers, and you’ll get dozens of hits. Any pro or college sports teams have them, and other stuff.

By the way—just kidding with the above post! It’s a very nice kid’s desk and was probably fun to build. But still—Go Cowboys!

Great idea…..now the colors could be different….lets say “Silver & Black”. My God Son is a Steelers Fan and his son is getting ready to turn 5. I think I will be making one of these for him! Thanks for sharing.
