Make it! UP­CY­CLED writ­ing DESK

Style at Home (UK) - - Extended Bungalow -

1 Find a piece of fur­ni­ture, such as a console or side ta­ble (have a look in your lo­cal char­ity shop or on ebay) with a top large enough for a desk area. 2 Re­move the ex­ist­ing legs and sand down the sur­face all over if the piece is not in a good con­di­tion. Wipe down with a cloth. 3 Use a screw­driver and the cor­rect sized screws to fix a set of metal hair­pin legs to the un­der­side of the flat sur­face. Use a ruler and pen­cil to mark the screw holes be­fore­hand to make sure they are evenly spaced. 4 If your desk has a back­board, cut a piece of wall­pa­per to size and stick in place by cov­er­ing the board with PVA glue and smooth­ing the pa­per into place, re­mov­ing any air bub­bles. 5 To tie it in with your scheme, give the legs a coat of metal paint in a co-or­di­nat­ing colour.
