Home Office Makeover & DIY X Base Desk

I decided to brighten the bookcases by painting them white.

We removed the original "L" shaped desk & converted it to an "X" base desk.  It now sits in front of the window, making the room feel bigger.

Removing the "L" shaped desk gave us three extra shelves in the bookcases.  Ikea boxes store craft supplies on once hard-to-reach shelving.
