I'm big on repurposing, but usually the items at hand are more obvious. (An old tea pot might become a pretty place for plants or old spaghetti jars could become your new grain storage system.) This transformation, however, is a total surprise! Who knew you could turn a dresser into a desk?

What was once a rather heavy and solid dresser has been "hacked" into a truly amazing desk. If you didn't know it once had a previous life holding clothes, you'd never guess its origins.

The second and third row of drawers were sawed off to remove excess wood and material. Paint was added as well as hardware and a new top. Now the piece is a great office desk. This makes me realize it's time to take a second look at those thrifted dresser finds, because there could be a desk in my presence!
