DIY Office Desk Ideas

A home office can be anything from a casual work area, for paperwork or crafts, to a more serious set up for a home business.  The most important work surface, being the desk, may need to serve some specialized needs which could be hard to outfit properly for the home environment.  That is when a desk diy may be the best answer.

These desk DIYs show how a custom piece really makes the most use of the office space as well as offering an amazing and creative design that is especially comfortable for the home.  You can find the tutorial for these desk diys by clicking on the photos.

Here is a cool idea using an old door as the desk top.  Rustic looking saw horses for the legs just add to the charm of this creative home office desk.  And, if you like the idea of using old doors, you have to check out this next idea as well:

Here is a desk made up entirely of recycled boards.  There is even an old side table incorporated into this design.  The finished look is very unique and creative.

And….of course some pallet desks have to be in the mix.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

I love how the wood pallet sits on a contrasting table top base!  The look is very shabby chic.
