We needed a new desk and loving the leather top ones (but not the price) decided to create our own.
1 - File Cabinet
8 - Glass Blocks
Standard 24" x 48" board
Vinyl - Pleather type Fabric
Desk measures 48" wide by 30" tall.
Our file cabinet was not as tall as we wanted so we took some wood and made a "U" shape to make the file cabinet taller (looks like a paper holder). I don't know why this file cabinet was so short -- most are 30" tall. If you want to save money -- paint or use an old one. Reuse, Recycle.
Cover Board with Vinyl and staple gun taut on back
Stack and Go
