Easy Pallet Desk

$0
5 Hours
Medium

We built this desk in about 2 1/2 hours.
For FREE!
We had some old table legs and we constructed a frame by attaching the pallet boards to the sides of the legs.The pallet boards on the long side of the desk measure 48″ wide and the pallet boards on the short side measure 11″ wide.
It was such a fun project and such a great way to repurpose and upcycle.
The desk fits easily under the hutch.  For reference, here are the dimensions of the desk:  
 
48 " wide
18 1/2″ deep
33″ tall.
