At DeeConstructed, Deanna had been asked by a friend to keep an eye out for something he could use as an island in his kitchen. She found this desk on the curb on trash day, and decided that with a little effort, she might be able to transform it into a kitchen island.
A fresh coat of paint and a slab of butcher block did the trick. For a very low cost, Deanna was able to give her friend a fantastic island for his bachelor pad kitchen. I think Deanna did a great job reimagining the possibilities for this little student desk, don’t you?
There’s a detailed tutorial for making this kitchen island from a desk at DeeConstructed.
