Before and After: $11 Thrift Store Desk
Before and After 11 Thrift Store Desk

"This $11.75 thrift store desk required a major transformation to fit my needs. I changed one of the sides of drawers into a cupboard to house my computer, and added molding and beadboard to the outside so that the desk would better suit my style. The makeover took me about a week to complete; 1-2 days of that was spent painting the exterior. Overall, I love my desk- it is the perfect size for the room, and large enough that I have plenty of room to work!"
