My wife wanted me to convert a sofa table into a small working desk. This was done due to space saving solution, She wanted to be able to be close to our ever busy son in the living room.
So I disassembled an old sofa table, reused the top. I then designed a filing cabinet system with drawers on the left and supported with a new rear leg.

I stained dark and poly on top. She loves it and I’m glad it turned out.

Nice reuse of the furniture. Love the modern look and the lamps go well on it.

Nice table. It’s always nice if you can reuse something. Does having that front corner suspended like that causes any instability?

I like the dark finish. I would have liked to see a before picture! But I like how you thought to transform an existing piece of furniture instead of buying or building something new. Very practical! I’ll have to look at my old furniture a little differently from now on.
