Versatile Desk

June, 2013

Here's another of those "I'm really glad I did it once, but I wouldn't want to do it again" projects. Our trailer came to us with an old desk with two cupboards underneath. One side didn't even have a door. It didn't work as storage; it didn't work as a desk. One side was too narrow for two knees. How could we keep the aluminum frame feel of the original trailer while making the desk useful for travel storage or as a work-from-home desk?

BEOFRE: Original desk was missing a door.

AFTER:Storage and a pull-out keyboard tray.

For a closer look and for construction details, keep on reading.
