Vintage Four Post Bed Turned Desk

Since my recent post on My Daughters Room, I have had a few inquiries about how we made  her
 Floating Desk from a bed.

  It began it's life as a vintage four poster bed.  When she made the switch from the crib to her first bed,  her Grandparents bought it for her at an Estate sale.  


When we moved into our new house a few years later, it didn't fit into her new room.  We were both emotionally attached to it and couldn't part with it.  That's when we decided to re-purpose it into a desk.


With the help of Grandpa, we used a circular saw to remove the headboard and footboard.  Then simply screwed them together on a 90 degree angle, caulked the seam, filled in the screw holes with a little wood putty and touched up the paint.


I picked up two large wood brackets from Home Depot and screwed them to the bottom of the desk.  We mounted the brackets to the wall and into the studs.

It is now a functional, stylish "Tween" desk with lots of sentimental value.

I can't wait to see what everyone else has been up to at this weekend's  Link-Up Parties. You are all so incredibly talented.


  1. The little chair is perfect with it. Great idea.

  2. I love the color combination. It is beautiful and serene.

  3. What a fabulous idea you had! How neat that she can keep it and enjoy it still as a repurposed piece and then keep it for her own house or child on day. Sweet! Love those blue walls in her new room.
    Also loved her bedroom with the 4 poster bed, how sweet! and she was such a cutie too!
    Blessings, Nellie

  4. That is wonderful! Who would have thought? Genious!
