Upcycled Desk to Coffee Table


I found this desk at a junk sale for $20. I sanded, painted, stained and printed on it to look like it had naturally aged. Now I need to cut the legs off to coffee table height. I love the little drawers, perfect for storing the remotes.
Almost finished, just need to shorten the legs

Traced a graphic from The Graphics Fairy and sanded it down to age it. I sealed it with satin poly when finished.
