We've seen plenty of incredible transformations of old things you'd never imagine re-purposed for modern use, but this has to be the sexiest remix we've seen in the computing furniture department. Dan over at Manhattan Nest demonstrates the power of craft when he created the desk of his dreams from a beat-up nightstand found on the street, a couple of knobs, paint, and legs from IKEA.
The best part of it all? This entire project cost him a mere $83. That's right, eighty-three. We imagine a piece this sexy would run in the upper hundreds at any typical "modern shabby chic" store you'll find in NYC.
And what do you do when you know you're onto something amazing? You document it, of course! Here's a complete walk-through on his construction process.
We're feeling so inspired, we feel like we can save all the nightstands in our city and create a bunch of these.
