How to DIY a Waney/Live Edge Desk

How to DIY a Waney/Live Edge Desk

Our bedroom has built-in cabinets either side of a Velux window. They’re handy for storage, but they were a catch-all for clutter. I felt like they were crying out to be better utilised. I wanted to add a big piece of wood to the top and turn it into a desk and vanity area, ideally with a live edge (also called a waney edge), where the natural edge of the wood slab isn’t squared off.

ORC Week 6 | Neutral Master Bedroom Reveal

Everything on order is taking ages to arrive. What I did do, though, is clear out the room properly and clean it top to bottom.
