SOME of the other desks

Pin It
As I mentioned in the last post, I ended up with a glut of desks in my stash.  All good, sturdy desks, and I do sell a few desks to clients who need them.  I had a lot though!  So, we began to think of different ways to repurpose some of those desks.  Today I'll show you one of the ways, which is quick and easy to do, and I have seen done on many different blogs.
Here is what we started with.  Love those huge wooden knobs.  An open knee on both sides and 2 
columns of drawers.  This is what we did.
We (and by we I mean the Mr. with my input) unscrewed the top, knocked out the center drawer, patched a few rough spots, re cut the top to fit and routed it to fit the two sets of drawers. A little paint and wax and viola`, side tables/night stands.  Love them.  I have 3 pairs, 2 of which are complete and will be for sale at the Prairie Market next weekend.  Here's what the other set looks like.
Sweet right?  Now those other desks...that's for another post.
