Dresser to Desk

I am a crafty person by nature and I've never been locked into one type of craft. The other day I started looking for a desk to go in my living room that would fit over the dog bed as we have a small house and are out of room. I found one at Target but it wasn't in stock. I was very frustrated and then remembered the dresser that didn't sell in the yard sale. I took a look at it and it is made of real wood and looks quite sturdy. Well I forgot to take a picture of it with the drawers, but here is one with out them.

Well I went out in the garage this morning and I got the jig saw out and took off the supports for the drawers and got this.

I'm getting excited now. I just have to sand it down so that everywhere I had to cut a support out is smooth and doesn't snag me. I am also going to surf the net to find how I want to paint it or finish it! Can't wait to be able to post a finished photo!

oh my golly, you rock! check out design sponge (google it) for some ideas, they show a lot of re-makeovers of furniture on their blog.
