Save on Space by Turning a Bookcase into a Desk! Here's How!

Awesome Remodels 01.04.15
A couple of years ago we decided our son was in need of a desk in his room but we were a bit short on space. So I took his existing bookcase and converted it to a desk while still keeping the shelves available for books and other storage. It was so easy to do! ~Vanessa

    At The Picket Fence - briliant idea! You have created a classic piece for your son's room. Sounds like a very economical project as well. Verrrry nice! Thanks for sharing :)

    Is there a link with the tutorial? I'm specifically wondering how you attached the wood to the book shelf.

    I don't have a link because I did this so long ago Sharon it wasn't even on the blog! LOL! All I did was leave one of the shelves in at the right height and attached the wood for the desk to the shelf using wood glue. I'm going to go back in and add that

    This is really a neat idea. If you were tight on space you could add a piano hinge where the desk meets the shelf, using one bys for the legs also attached with hinges so it could be closed when not in use.

    Becky great idea. Perfect for any tight space where storage and flat surface area needs compete.
