If you want to build a desktop by yourself, then these inspirations will come to aid. Whether small or large, from old table parts or brand new, these ideas are practical and interesting, and offer an alternative, as well as some creative designs for a DIY desk.
DIY desk – built in desks
The easiest and most space-saving version for a DIY desk, is a design with a ‘transformed’ folding cabinet door. The cabinet door should of course be tested in advance whether it can withstand the laptop and too many books may be a bit of an overload. Second, the cabinet door should be at a suitable height – if it is higher, you can use a bar stool chair instead. Paint the door in a contrasting color to make it look better – and you are ready. Similar option provides the bookcase – the bottom shelf you can simply use as a desk.
DIY desk – models
If you just have an old table from your parents, you can turn it into a desk. If some legs of the table are damaged, you can simply attach one side of the table to the wall, or transform it to a cabinet. A DIY desk means, above all, to find inventive designs, where you can use your old furniture. If you buy all new parts, you can choose a wooden board with metal legs and wheels – the design is pretty simple and the it can be moved, if necessary.
The simplest construction is also the easiest to build. People who want to build a desk on their own can build a simple table and then integrate creative shelving systems in the design – for example, three identical baskets instead of shelves. If you have just made a renovation, and have available metal constructions, you can use them as the base for your desktop. Be creative and think of other options, how to build a one without much trouble.
