Hey there “junkers” save those desks that no longer fit folders or even papers! Check out this desk I took apart and made matching night stands.
Heres what I did:
- Remove the top (save that for later)
2. Cut it up! I used a reciprocating saw for that.
3.Do the necessary repairs. Lots of veneer missing, which I was able to fill smooth! I use a lot of bondo for just this purpose!
4. Its in two pieces! Needs a little gluing but otherwise its a good and solid for night stands!
More veneer and missing wood more bondo!
5. Cut up the top and router the edge I cut off.
6.Stained the top a shaker maple, General Finishes water base stain.
The casing on these twins are painted with basil green from General Finishes. I distressed using a 220 grit sandpaper and then glazed using none other than vandyke brown from General Finishes as well.
Thank you for reading and happy flipping
