Your work area and desk are spots where you are trying to create and out do yourself. This spot should be inspiring and the only way to do that is to personalize it. One of the best ways to create a customized work area is by making your own desk according to what you need. The DIY computer table ideas are endless, and combine many different concepts and pieces of furniture.
For your table, old doors or previous tables can be recycled into modern and elegant tables. Sand an old door, blowtorch the surface, and wood stain it for a sleek finish. Place your top on two cabinets or mini racks. If you do not have cabinets, attach hairpin legs or plain wooden ones. This very same door can be sawed into two parts vertically or horizontally depending on your space and need. Screw them to the wall one on top of the other leaving some space in between to make a bottom shelf. This will make a smart floating shelf table.
Use one shelf of your book rack as a rest to one end of your tabletop with the other end resting on a rack or make two legs. A funky idea is placing a glass top atop a neat pile of old books. Jazz up your room my covering an old table with multicolored duct tape stripes or maps. Paint your desk a crisp white and add A-line legs.
Experiment with old dining tables, racks, or pallets. The final additions can vary from stain to paint to coins or even a chalkboard top. It is all under your fingertips!
