Over the years we’ve collected furniture. Not as a hobby or anything, just out of necessity. So this is a piece from my old bedroom set that was in Rachel’s office taking up space. I was thinking of ways to turn this into something a little bit more useful. Hmm…
A place to put some paperwork and other odds and ends, mayhaps? A file-cabinet-type-thingy you say?
So here we go…
The great disassemble. Being careful to keep all the hardware somewhere safe.
Ikea hemnes collection. Solid wood.
In pieces on the table.

Here’s a closer look at the lovely sand job.
After staining, to keep things consistent with the desks I just refinished.
A closer look.
The drawer was much darker for some reason…Looks cool though.
Don’t you think?
OH…did i mention WHEELS?! She can slide it out to put her coffee or tea up there in the morning. Or love letters to me.
Marking out where I want the wheels to be placed.
Pre-drilling the holes, careful not to go through!
Stay tuned for an in-office shot!
