Built this for my son that is in kindergarden. He is really into art and needed a place to do his coloring. The black is actually chalkboard paint. Comes in real handy. I am in the process of building one for my daughter now. Material is poplar and pine. I used my new hvlp sprayer to apply the blue. Works really nice. Enjoy.

Nice job.
I bet your son gets a lot of great use out of it.
The chalk board paint was a smart idea too.
And congratulations on your 100 day anniversary.

It looks great; way to go, dad.

woodbutcher, the desk is 24’’ deep by 30’’ wide. I made the bottom of the desk 25’’ tall. It’s a little tall but we have an adjustable chair for them and they will be able to grow into it. Thanks all for the comments
