Wouldn't this Pallet Vanity Corner Desk, complete with a large mirror, lots of lighting, extra outlets, and a handy switch be terrific? But wait! It gets better. It has spacious drawers for convenient storage options, and plans to improve it are in the works.
Pallet Vanity Corner Desk - Great for now, but better soon!
First, I built the two drawer frame, cladding the sides with pallet deck boards. Next, I used stringer boards to frame out the remainder of the L-shaped desk. This includes the legs, table supports, and the lower braces where the shelf will eventually be installed. Then, I covered the sides and top with more deck boards. I alternated the direction for a bit of visual appeal. I built a sturdy mirror frame, mitering the corners.
Pallet Vanity Corner Desk - Finishing:
I stained the entire desk unit and framed a rich brown color after sanding it relatively smooth for comfort and safety. I pre-drilled holes for the wiring and light mounts, ran the wiring, and then installed the light fixtures and outlet/switch.
