Materials: HENSVIK Bookcase, ADEL kitchen cabinet door, table legs (2), table leg mounting hardware (2)

Description: I covered the backboard of the HENSVIK bookcase with a fun gray and yellow patterned fabric. Hubby installed the table leg hardware on to the ADEL kitchen cabinet door(purchased in the “As Is” section for $3.99). After measuring the depth of the bookcase, we added two notches to the kitchen cabinet door/desk top making it easier to slip into place.

We added a 1 inch piece of wood to the inside of the bookcase which was screwed into another 1 inch piece behind the bookcase to support the back edge of desk top. I spray painted the legs with satin finish paint . We slipped the desk top into place and screwed in the legs. After getting all of my supplies organized, I now have my very own Bookcase Desk!
