Materials: Effective Desk and wood file cabinets

Description: I was inspired by a desk set at Pottery Barnir?t=ikeahacker 20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=0848727657 that I couldn’t afford. I used my old (red/brown) Effective Desk and bought two solid oak file cabinets off craigslist for $75.

– I painted the Desk Top and the cabinets Benjamin Moore’s Timid White
– I removed the Ikea legs and hardware from the desk and braced the back corner with some braces I fashioned from metal plates and $2 banister inserts from Home Depot. It is solid!
– The Desk Top just rests on the cabinets at either end.

I love how it turned out.
