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.
Before/Front
It is solid wood. Very heavy!!
Back
Front and in the process of cleaning it up.
Added sexy legs to it!!
I didn't like the desk the way it was, thought it needed to be prettied up a bit.
Adding primer and paint.
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.
These are the drawers when finished.
This is the final beauty!! Love her and I think she is happy.
Before
After
What do you think!!
Updated picture of what I have done with this hutch!

    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.
