This is what our desk looked like before. It was a craigslist find, and I really hoped there were going to be 8 legs to this desk so it would be an easy makeover.
When I went to pick it up, I was bummed to find out that at some point two of the back legs were cut off.
But I was already determined to make this desk into nightstands. So I bought it, and came up with a plan to add new legs so each end could stand on it's own.
