As promised, here are pics of the desk and the shelf.
As you guys can see in the before, this desk was a disaster. I ripped off the roll top and split the shelf piece from that. The rest is pretty much self explanatory.
I love this desk to pieces already and I feel like I should caption this whole thing like a click bait article, something along the lines of:
This desk went from old to new, but wait til you see what’s hidden inside!
[I rarely ask this but please do not remove the caption. This is my project and it was a massive undertaking to run this in tandem with the dresser.]
