DIY “X” Base Desk

As part of our study makeover, I decided to split up our “L” shaped desk & create two separate work spaces.  Here are a few pictures of how we created this desk…

DIY X Desk

from this…

March 341

First, my husband, removed the writing desk from the bookshelf area.  Then, he removed the sides & back & replaced them with pieces of finished plywood.  Then, he created the X legs by tweaking Anna White’s plans.

He did have to remove the track from the drawers from the sides he removed & glue & staple them back on the sides he added.

Here is the front before I painted it:


…and the back (sorry for the blurry picture).


And here it is, at home in the study!

I really love the way it turned out!
