Slim DIY desk with a customized design

We are all unique and different so it doesn’t really seem fair to be using furniture that hundreds of other people have too. We should try to personalize our home in the same way we personalize our outfits and ourselves. We’re not all professional carpenters so we can’t make our furniture ourselves but we can use already existing pieces to create a new and original design.

This DIY project shows you how to personalize your home by creating a unique desk. You don’t have to build it from scratch. It fact, it’s enough to take two separate pieces, put them together and form a new design. In this case we have a narrow desk made from an occasional table and a side table with storage put together. The two pieces were purchased separately but had similar and matching designs. They were both white, modern and minimalist and the dimensions matched as well. So creating the desk was easy.

Of course, the desk would have been incomplete without a keyboard tray. This was something that needed to be added. The sliding keyboard tray was made from a flat shelf and drawer slider hardware. It was painted white just like the rest of the pieces and it matched perfectly. The result was a very functional and stylish desk with a slim design. It was perfect for working at the computer or laptop and it even had storage. A stool was the only thing that this space needed.Table 70$,table leg with storage 49$.
