This sewing machine desk was a joint effort between my husband and I... I can't take all the credit this time. Unfortunately I don't have a before picture. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the desk when my husband started going at it and then he was almost done before I thought about it, (my husband is a procrastinator, and I knew I shouldn't stop him...)
Anyways, he cut the desk portion off, leaving only drawers along the one side. He removed the legs from the opposite side and attached them to the drawer section. He then took the cover off the top and cut it to fit the top of the drawers, and attached it.
I painted it a light blue/grey. The colour is called music room from CIL, but I had it colour matched at Home Hardware. I originally used this paint in my livingroom, and it looks slightly darker and bluer on my walls then it does on this piece.
We used the original hardware, because they really suited.
