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

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

What started out as a basic bookcase is transformed into a functional desk.
My son absolutely loved his new desk and a plain second-hand chair was given a new look with a coat of red paint.

    So glad to see this done as I've been thinking of doing the same thing to add a desk to a very small space and wall just inside my laundry room. But I plan to make the desk surface fold up or down on hinges, so that when not in use, we can get by!
