DIY Standing Parsons Desk

Super easy.

A parsons style desk is ridiculously simple to build because everything is square and symmetrical.
You need:
4 4x4s for legs - mine are 58 inches high. 
1 inch thick plywood - mine is cut 20'x54'. 
3 inch wide flat trim to go around. 
Brass bracket hardware.

Home Depot will cut all your wood for you for free. 

Screw the top to the legs and trim the sides. Then paint! I used rustoleum oil based protective enamel in gloss white. The best!

Baskets are from Home Goods. Totally a Serena and Lily rip off. Eeey!

The before is just ew. But it's what happens when you want a standing desk NOW because you just read an article that said sitting will slowly kill you.
