Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing you can safely do to convert it from Natural Gas to LPG.
Each unit is manufacutered and tested for the specific gas type. Attempting to change it, puts all the liability on you, if something should go wrong. There are some on this site that will tell you all you have to do, is change the pilot orifice. That's fine for a Vented heating appliance, but not a Vent-free Heater like yours. In your case, you'd need a new control valve assembly, pilot assembly, burner, etc. That alone is about the cost of a new LPG Vent-free Heater. Besides, DESA Interantional has been out of business for 3 or 4 years now. So, parts would be an issue.
Sell the heater to someone who has Natural Gas and use the proceeds toward a new LPG Vent-free Heater. Always remember and don't every forget, it's always safety first when it comes to gas appliances.
Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
