DIY Letter Desk

By:

Turn an old baby changing station into a functional DIY Letter Desk with this tutorial from Cristin Frank.  With some basic construction tools and some patience, you can create a desk that's unique and budget-friendly.  Every baby changing station is different, so it is possible your desk won't turn out exactly like this one, but this is a good guide on how to transform an average piece of furniture into something useful and fuctional.

Materials:

  • Baby changing table (shop at thrift stores)
  • Wood glue
  • Construction tools


Instructions:

  1. I used wood glue to assemble it since it didn't come with the original screws. The wood glue worked great since it has a tongue and groove construction.

  2. Since I needed an open front on one side for a desk chair, I used a jigsaw to convert the second shelf into an open storage unit.
     
  3. I used small L-brackets to create the corner in the shelf and to attach the right, vertical piece to the underside of the desktop. These L-brackets were repurposed from a crib I also garbage picked (pretty handy!)

  4. I attached the corner bracket on the outside and the top bracket on the inside of the cubbie.
