June 1, 2012 By Beckie Tracie from Cleverly Inspired was in love with the sawhorse desk style. I saw this lovely home office & studio at Meredith Perdue (check out her dog photography, amazing!) and thought you would all enjoy a little peek. We talked here yesterday about creating a little space of your own, and if you have room for a desk or work table, this is a fabulous way to make one yourself! If you enjoy repurposing and DIY ideas, you’ll love the new DIY pages on The Inspired Room!
All of the glass is intact so I want to use the panes as frames (some with just plain paper or fabric and others with photos). My husband really wants a desk made out of an Indonesian door with all the beautiful carving in it. When we moved we brought along an old window with the wood strips dividing it and my husband applied the mirror paint to the glass panes. Every time I’ve ever opened a new office we would get flush doors (flat, smooth) and span them between two, 2-drawer, file cabinets and we were off and running!
I bought a door at Ikea for my desk, it was the only thing big enough to put all my equipment on, but now that I need more space, this is a perfect solution.
This is definitely not decorative, but we use old doors on sawhorses to display sale items when having a yard sale. One of the most creative uses I have ever seen for old doors is turning them into a day bed. It’s made out of an old door with a piece of glass on top and is mounted directly to the wall with brackets. I informed Alissa that that was the most ghetto thing one could possibly do, and that I should not act like a redneck just because I live in Texas.
First, I laid down two concrete blocks on some newspaper and put a shirt over them so they wouldn't scratch the door. Nothing is critical here, except to remember that you don't want this desk tipping over if you nudge it. Practicality, functionality and efficiency are of the utmost importance, yet an ever-growing interest in making this space refreshingly stylish has led to a large number of home office DIY projects. When she happened upon an old barn door that was a steal for $25, she knew it was just what she needed to create a beautiful and unique desk top.
But if you are short on space or need a place for files, you could also substitute file cabinets! Other than using them as, well, doors, I’ve seen them set against a wall for architectural interest, hung on a wall as art, made into headboards…what are some other good ideas for using old doors? I have been trying to get him to use an old door like this for a table in our breakfast room. It now sits in a corner of our living room adding character (I left the old paint on) and depth. I have it leaning against the wall right now, which I like, but my husband needs it to have a purpose. I don’t know how many they bought, but the waintscoting they made from them was gorgeous.


Just imagining all the people that have passed through them keep me daydreaming about having them everywhere. The guy at the store told me to use a roller, even though the can said specifically not to use a roller.
She paired the door with some old railing parts for the legs and topped it all off with a piece of glass.
This also makes such a decorating statement, but perhaps I’d prefer to rest it on some file cabinets or something. I plan on sending a link link to your post to our Deserving Decor volunteers ~ as I frequently do from this wonderfully creative website! I think I'd use a wide brush next time, because the roller left little air bubbles in the finish. A well-decorated work space has the power to inspire and rejuvenate, turning the most mundane of tasks into bearable and (dare we say) enjoyable experiences!Inspirational ideas for DIY desksIt’s therefore no surprise that a large number of DIY desk projects have emerged, from the relatively easy to the more intricate and complex. She has found a way to seal them, so that it’s not (as?) dangerous to bring the lead paint into your house. There was one at IKEA that came close to what I wanted, but it was just too small and I wasn't sure it could support the weight of my monitor.
Also, the guy at the store suggested I use semi-gloss instead of gloss, and I THINK I'm glad I listened to him. You may want to consider placing a stack of concrete bricks under areas where ultra-heavy things are going to rest. Even if you’re not in the market for a new desk, check out the home office setups below.
The bottom has a herringbone inlay separating the maple and fir.The door knob is functional. The desk looked really nice when it was still wet, so I'm wondering if a glossy finish would be better.
I made the rear blocks closer together toward the center of the desk to support my heavy monitor.
I have no desire to get a “REAL” desk, because what could be better than a door? Put at least 2 coats on the top; if you have the patience and time, a third coat is probably best.
These desks can support the weight of your work.The Pottery Barn-inspired desk below has painted file cabinet bases, which hold the top of a disassembled IKEA Effektiv desk. The door top of my desk is decades old now, but because doors are constructed to be slammed and kicked the surface still looks like new.One secret to making a door desk is to use a solid core door. The full tutorial is available at IKEAhackers, a site that used IKEA furniture parts to create new pieces!Large DIY home office desk on the cornerFor a similar corner look, check out the DIY Build Your Own Craft Desk project. Note how table legs are attached to one end of the desk, while cube shelving adds support to the opposite end and middle. Visit Jannypie for further instructions.See also5 Corner Desks for the OfficeModern DIY corner deskIt seems the trend of shelving as desk base is catching on. I coated it with a satin polyurethane so it looks like nice furniture and has a waterproof surface. Not to mention, a wooden top constructed from Home Depot materials gives the piece substance.


Door desks should be projects of their own, and boy do I have a lot of things attached to mine.My first door desk had shelves I constructed to sit on top, but now I just use wall mounted shelves so I have more space on top. The arms keep the desk clear while also letting me quickly readjust the space for different needs. Door desks are deep enough that even with equipment on the desk I still have six feet by almost two and a half feet totally clear for working. I sometimes clear it to spread out five feet of butchers paper for outlining and designing.The first thing I attached to my door desk back when I first assembled it was an adjustable keyboard and mouse shelf. My first job out of college had these exact same shelves and I liked them so much that I tracked them down and bought some. I figure even coders and writers should buy tools like a craftsman, tools that can last a lifetime. These allow me to put the keyboard at any height and angle, thus helping me avoid and adjust for repetitive motion injuries, like carpal tunnel.Above is my video editing setup.
This uses a larger keyboard with the editing commands on the key and a jog and shuttle wheel for moving through video quickly. You might also notice that I now use a vertical mouse, which helps again with repetitive motion injuries. Eventually I needed bigger filing cabinets to hold all the folders for the many projects I was working on and decided to replace them with shelving units instead. This gave me two drawers on the side along with more shelves to store equipment under the desk.When assembling the cabinets I replaced the wood on the back with pegboard.
I keep a network router, a networked USB hub, and power plugs mounted here, thus keeping them off the floor and the desk.I also attached wire holders under the desk so the wires are off the floor and organized.
Enough wires for you?Ever since getting some wrist pain many years ago I’ve been using ergonomic keyboards. I wanted a good way to work in dim lighting, which is great for video editing along with writing at night, but none of the  ergonomic keyboards I found had LED lighting built in, so I bought some LED ribbon lights like those used in under-cabinet lighting in a kitchen to create built-in dimmable lighting. Next to this is a card reader which is also mounted under the desk to keep it out of the way. Both the card reader and switchable USB hub are attached with heavy duty velcro so I can remove them for easy rewiring if necessary. A coat hook holds my headphones.While this desk is used for my desktop machine, I also have a light stand with a laptop shelf attached to it next to the desk. You might notice that I have a power strip attached under the drawers and network cable fished through areas I drilled holes. It’s funny how a small piece can make such a big statement!DIY hutch deskMaking use of the corner can be a saving grace in a small space. The top counter becomes the desk top while the bottom counter is transformed into a handy shelf. [from Lifehacker]DIY floating corner deskIKEA pieces seem to come in handy for more than a few DIY desk projects!
