How to Make a Kids Art Desk With Storage and Art Accessories: A good way to solve the clutter problem is to make use of wooden storage drawers and shoe racks. The key of course is to use appropriate wood glue for such a project. So, how to start? First, open the drawers and place the “junk” items in one corner. Scrub the surface of the drawers using a soft cloth and then let it dry before you put them back.
Now it is time to think big. How to Make a Kids Art Desk With Storage and Art Accessories: Using the same technique you used on the previous step, paint the entire desk with the color of your choice. If you know art, you know that colors can make everything look beautiful. For this purpose, you may consider painting the top of the desk with the color of your choice. Paint the rest of the surface of the table with the appropriate color.
You can also add a small mirror to the top of your kids art desk. If your kids are very excited about art, they will certainly appreciate this accessory. To add more functionality, attach a shoe rack to the top of the cabinet. The key here is to use appropriate wood glue for such a project. Once you finish the job, you can place the kids art desk at the end of the hallway or in the kitchen.
Kids art supplies are not that expensive so you can easily decorate the desk with different types of supplies you can find in any local craft store. The basic things needed include crayons, chalk, markers, scissors, paints, permanent markers, glue sticks, eye pencils, colored pencils, scissors, pens, stickers, and other miscellaneous art supplies. You don’t have to spend much on this task, especially if you have kids at home. Just check your local craft store for their prices and pick up a lot of supplies.
One tip that you must remember when working on open front desk for kids is to put the kids chairs at an angle. The chair at an angle will provide more comfort and ease to your child. You also need to consider placing the books at an appropriate height. Remember to keep the desk clean, tidy, and free from clutter.

As mentioned earlier, there are several ways in which you can decorate your kids’ desk. First of all, you can place a chair with a tray on the front of the desk where you can stack up your art supplies. Then, you can store small items on shelves, boxes, or baskets, and large items on the drawers of the table.
Also, there are many kids desks chairs available in the market that come with a cupboard underneath. Some even have shelves on the bottom so that you can easily locate any art supplies you need.
