Large Corner Desk with File Cabinets


Nicole shares on IKEA Hackers how she beautified two solid oak file cabinets from Craigslist with just some paint and new hardware.

I seriously scrolled up and down comparing the two pics because I couldn’t believe they were the same file cabinets!

She also painted her old desktop from IKEA and placed it atop the cabinet base.

Now she has a stylish new work space to enjoy!

I have to say, this is truly amazing. This is a wonderful example of using your creativity to come up with a brilliant corner desk idea that provides ample desk space with the storage of a good-sized wooden desk.

DIY Corner Desk

Nicole’s original inspiration was the Bedford Corner Desk Set from Pottery Barn.

Cool, thanks Beckie! I've never been featured on anyone's site before. Thanks for choosing my desk and leading me to your website. It looks like a great resource for all of us with great style, but more imagination than money:) All the best to you and your website! Nicole
