I bought cabinets from Lowes. Not kitchen cabinets because I didn't want to have to install the toe kick and I didn't want drawers. Also I wanted the cabinets to not be so deep. I got these in the section at Lowes with closet organizers and shelves.
My significant other put them together. He's a sweetheart.
The cabinets are ready to become a desk!
We cut plywood to the size of the desk.
Brackets were used to ensure the top stayed in place.
I used peel and stick flooring to cover the plywood. Expensive wood look without the cost. And if I mess it up or scratch the top I just peel the piece off and stick another one on.
Next we used a piece of small trim to cover the front of the plywood. I painted it white.
I put a hole in the top so that I could run my laptop power cords.
