Change a Desk Into More Function With Shelf and Feet


Ever have furniture laying around your house that isn't doing it's job? It is just taking up space? Well, make it useful with a few quick changes!
I changed a desk into a changing table by adding a shelf and some feet.....finial feet!
This change could also make it useful in the kitchen as an island with loads of storage. Change out the finials and use locking casters to make it portable, so it could also be a movable serving cart.

    Great re-purpose. I love seeing old tv or entertainment units being transformed into something else too, but you rarely see desks being given this treatment. Baby change tables are another ripe for re-purposing. No doubt your re-purposed desk to baby change table could be re-purposed yet again when the change table is no longer needed. I would be very interested to see what you do with this one next!

    I think it would also make a great kitchen island when the baby stage is over!

      @Reposhture Studio - Kim, yes it would. You could even add a section at the back for snacking or extra prep room. ofcourse it has to be the right height too. You might have to add a bit taller legs to allow for ease of use in the kitchen. Most desks are about 28 to 30 inches tall and kitchen counters are closer to 36 inches high. It could easily work though. And look how cute it would be!
