DIY Kitchen Table Turned Into a Desk
I had been looking for a new desk for my craft/guest combo room..
and just couldn't find one that was affordable and made from real wood.
I use to actually use a small kitchen table in my craft room but I had changed that out.
Well, I decided I didn't have much to lose by cutting it down to see if I could make it work in this space again..
after all it was just sitting in the garage taking up space there.
So I decided on the width I wanted it to be to fit the small space I had available to place a desk. I chose to go with 19" deep, and I marked it all off and got started using my circular saw.
Of course I had to work on the hardware and change the bottom so I could put it all back together and re attach the legs.
That was actually much easier than I figured it would be.
After it was all back together I got to work sanding it all down.
Then I chose to paint it a pretty shade of navy blue.
It is the perfect size for the space, and I love how much room it has to offer when I am working on a project.
Since I had everything on hand this project was a no cost project, and I got a solid wood and practical desk that functions perfectly where I need it. Gotta love those kind of projects!
