How can I upcycle this desk?
back before laptops/computers, we had a desk w/hutch. 3 drawers on left, 1 "tummy" drawer, then there was about 8 in between the desktop and underside of hutch (removable). we no longer use this furniture, what can we do with it short of selling it? used as a kitchen piece (cookbooks, knicknacks etc), thought about removing hutch, and using desk. what to do with a perfectly good hutch top? thanks!

William on Jan 05, 2017If you have room on a wall, you can mount the hutch top upside down on the wall and use it as a curio or kitchen storage. Cut the drawer part from the top and use it as an end table or bedside table. Paint them to suite your decor.1 marked as helpful Reply
Cindy Hagemann on Jan 05, 2017A photo would be nice - but if it is on the small side, you could paint it and hang it on the wall as a shelf. If it is bigger, add feet and make a free standing shelf out it, something like this. Here is am example of hanging it on the wall:1 marked as helpful Reply
Judy on Jan 09, 2017I have one like that, in maple and I love it because it was my mother's . I use mine as a computer desk.. Since I love older furniture, I would suggest you put it in a guest room or child's room. Painting it to match a décor isn't that hard, at least you get to keep it.Helpful Reply
Kat on Jan 09, 2017hi, thanks for the suggestion. I really want to get rid of it altogether, but hubby has a "thing" about disposing of anything....I'm trying to declutter (house for sale, decluttering). yes, I can use the bottom desk part, but its the top hutch part I dont know what to do with. have no kids, so not an idea....it would look silly just sitting on the floor for something.....still thinking......thanks again! hopefully will get a pic posted soon...Helpful Reply
