How cool is this laptop stand!
I don’t know about you but I would much rather be comfortable on the couch then at my desk worrying about my posture! 😉
This rustic laptop stand is very easy to make and I’m gonna show you how! 🙂
What you need:
• three 7″ wide 18″ long poplar wood boards (or other wood of your choice)
• two 5″ wide 18″ long poplar wood boards (or other wood of your choice)
• four small brackets
• two long brackets
• four corner brackets
• two handles
• metallic spray paint
• fifty (to be safe) silver screws
Tools you need:
• Drill and bits
• Screw gun and bits
• hand or electric saw
• tape measure
• and a friend
• electric sander * optional *
Lay brackets on a plastic sheet, spray paint all of your brackets, and then let them dry.
Lay one wide piece of wood and smaller boards on either side.
Once brackets are dry place brackets where you would like them.
Now screw them into place.
Measure one of your wider boards and mark where to cut.
Now mark the other side.
Cut boards on that line.
Sand the edges with sandpaper or an electric sander.
Pre drill holes in the left side, middle, and right side to match up with the main top.
Now place corner brackets where you want them.
Mark holes with a pencil, pre drill holes, and then screw into place.
Find the middle exact middle of the board to mark the handle holes.
Pre drill holes for the handles on both sides.
Now from the back side screw in holes to attach the handles.
And you’re done!!
Also how cute is this ‘Ive got good taste’ water bottle!
It’ll be in my next Sasha In Good Taste giveaway!
The best part about this laptop stand is that it doesn’t just have to be just a laptop stand.
It’s also a great food tray, amongst other things!
