Dining Buffet Repurposed to an Office Desk

At Country Design Style, Jeanette’s dining room pulls double-duty as an office space.  In that space, she had a lovely vintage buffet that wasn’t functioning at optimum capacity:  it only held a few linens and dishes that got pulled out infrequently for formal dining.  On the other side, she had two sad little filing cabinets in the corner that were functioning at over-capacity as storage for office supplies.

Jeanette’s solution was to relocate the fine linens and turn her seldom-used buffet into an office desk that would get daily use.  She tried to leave the buffet itself as intact as possible, in case she ever wanted to use it again as originally intended.  One physical change she made was adding a glide out laptop surface to the top middle drawer.  She added beaded board fronts to old file cabinet drawers and put them in the side cupboards, where they fit perfectly.  Now Jeanette has an office space that looks and functions beautifully in her dining room!
