So Many Ways to Repurpose a Desk!

I was talking on the phone to a potential client the other day about a desk he has that is a sentimental family piece, but is simply not functional.  The place where your knees are supposed to go is so small that only a child could fit.  I have not seen the desk or even a picture, but my mind is already rolling.  It got me to thinking about all of the different ways to repurpose a desk.  I realize that not everyone looks at things the way I do or thinks the way I do (we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief), so I thought I’d bring you along on a crazy journey through my brain –and the brains of some other very talented creators.

Let’s start with a few of the ways I have repurposed a desk.  Below are some examples:

This old secretary desk became a perfect coffee bar with plenty of storage for supplies.

Kinda makes you want to go find a desk at a thrift store and get creating, doesn’t it?  Ok, maybe it’s just me.  But I want you to see the endless possibilities of repurposing furniture.  Now, what are we going to do about that piece in your basement?
