Ikea Hack // Desk Two Ways

Hi friends, hope you had a lovely weekend.  I am back with another Ikea Hack.  This one is so simple it'll leave you saying "duh!"  I took the $40 Vittsjo laptop desk and made it look much, much more expensive than that.  This is seriously so simple I don't even have a tutorial for you.  I went Home Depot and had a piece of wood cut to 39 1/2" x 14 1/4".  Don't use plywood unless you like the look of the stacked edges.  I used this 18" wide pine board.  I stained the board with Minwax Polyshades in Mission Oak.  Set the board on top and voila!  Told you it was easy!  If you are using this piece of furniture a lot, I would advise gluing the top to the base.  And, for the vanity I spray painted the base white for a slightly more feminine look.  

Here is the finished Vittsjo hack in my bedroom as a vanity.
