Kay's room Purple and Concrete, a bedroom transformation
The concrete desk and storage bench started off basically with the same design and construction. It is basically a concrete slab. So we measured out out area and I molded their forms for the concrete to be poured.
Next I had to find some legs for the desk and a storage unit for the bench.
The legs were easy to find, unfinished table legs or stair railings you can find in any hardware store. We cut them to size, spray painted them black and done. The storage bench was not so easy. We had to find something to fit an already fixed size and shape. We had the concrete top made for it, we had the location for it, but we just could not find anything to fit the area the way we needed to. We were very close to making our own, until we took a look at Walmart. We found a great little storage unit that was the perfect measurements we needed...and when I say perfect I mean not even a cm off. So, yes, there was a little concern there!

The storage bench, like I said, fit perfectly and it took a lot of work and force to make this happen.
As you see, in the picture below we put a hole in the wall trying to force the bench into place. We also cut out the trim on the wall...in the end it fit!! and so did the concrete top.

|and btw the pillow are NOT hiding the holes. We did fix it.|
