Save on Space by Turning a Bookcase Into a Desk! Here's How!
A couple of years ago we decided our son was in need of a desk in his room but we were a bit short on space. So I took his existing bookcase and converted it to a desk while still keeping the shelves available for books and other storage. It was so easy to do! ~Vanessa #ProudestDIY #Love2Repurpose What started out as a basic bookcase is transformed into a functional desk. My son absolutely loved his new desk and a plain second-hand chair was given a new look with a coat of red pa…
