Rustic Laptop Stand

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! πŸ˜‰

 

This rustic laptop stand is very easy to make and I’m gonna show you how! πŸ™‚

 

 

 

What you need:

 

β€’ three 7″ wide 18″ long poplar wood boards (or other wood of your choice)

β€’ two 5″ wide 18″ long poplar wood boards (or other wood of your choice)

β€’ two long brackets

β€’ four corner brackets

β€’ two handles

β€’ metallic spray paint

 

β€’ fifty (to be safe) silver screws

Tools you need:

 

β€’ Drill and bits

β€’ Screw gun and bits

β€’ hand or electric saw

β€’ pencil

β€’ leveler

β€’ tape measure

β€’ and a friend

Step 1:

 

Β  Β 

Lay brackets on a plastic sheet, spray paint all of your brackets, and then let them dry.

 

 

Step 2:

 

Lay one wide piece of wood and smaller boards on either side.

 

 

Step 3:

 

Once brackets are dry place brackets where you would like them.

 

Step 4:

 

Now screw them into place.

 

Step 5:

Measure one of your wider boards and mark where to cut.

 

Step 6:

 

Now mark the other side.

 

Step 7:

Β 

Cut boards on that line.

 

 

Step 8:

Sand the edges with sandpaper or an electric sander.

 

 

Step 9:

 

Pre drill holes in the left side, middle, and right side to match up with the main top.

 

Step 10:

 

Now place corner brackets where you want them.

 

Step 11:

Mark holes with a pencil, pre drill holes, and then screw into place.

 

Step 12:

Find the middle exact middle of the board to mark the handle holes.

 

Step 13:

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!

 

 

Enjoy!
