So my partner, Kirsten from White Butterfly has done this trick many times, so when I found this desk, I knew I had to try taking a desk into two separate nightstands.
This desk had a very narrow knee hole, so I didn't feel too bad cutting it up. And actually, I didn't cut it up...my neighbor did. Thanks Jeff!
I used Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Dried Lavender with antiquing wax. I was going to try to swap out the knobs, but they didn't want to come off without a fight. I'm SO glad I kept them on!
Much more functional! These will be for sale at Carver Junk Company in June!
