DIY File Cabinet Desk

This last month I went through a huge transition…ALL of my kiddos are in school ALL day long! It’s so bittersweet. With my boys being gone I knew I needed a new craft/work space because I finally have some real craft time! I wanted it HUGE! 10 feet long huge and spanning my whole room. I did a lot of research on how to create it and decided to use file cabinets for my base.

I looked long and hard on Craigslist and our local thrift stores and came up empty for months. Dang small town living! So, I had to buck up and buy mine off Amazon. To support the desk with how deep I wanted it, I needed deep cabinets. I wanted to paint them so they looked really nice. To start painting them, first pull off the hardware.

You also have to pull out the drawers. If you cant figure out how to get them out, try YouTube! It helped me! I wrapped around the drawers with paper, so only the front would get painted. You can not remove the button so I just painted mine.
