Desk to Hutch


My neighbor had to move and left a bunch of things in our field, covered. Later she came back and took what she wanted and left tons of things to go to the dump. Well....she left this filthy, unloved desk in our field. At first I was going to take it to the dump also. Then I thought maybe I would clean it up and sell it on craigslist. The more I looked at it the more I came up with a different plan.

I didn't like the desk the way it was, thought it needed to be prettied up a bit.

Of course it needed knobs.
Scrap paper added to inside of drawers.

I added a distressed scrapbook paper to the drawers to give it a little more character.

    Very clever adding the bun feet and they look great! I would have tried to match the whites if possible, but other than that, the top looks super cute and excellent idea for the knee hole.

      Thank you Dolly! Yeah, I really wanted them to match but was to lazy to at the time. I'm working towards it though, lol.
