We start with a very interesting “desk meets bookcase” project. By incorporating a bookshelf as a chic divider, a desk becomes a tiny workspace for two.

As you can see, wide varieties of DIY computer desk projects are at the ready for those who want to be adventurous in home office design.

Small and Stylish DIY Wall Mounted Desk for iMac

Small and Stylish DIY Wall Mounted Desk for iMac

Gérard from The Netherlands has a sleek solution for his iMac.

“My Apple iMac obstructed our dinner table for a year. My wife did not make much of it. To please her I did a little Ikea hacking. I bought a Ludvig Laptop shelf/charging station. And a Ludvig Router/modem wall cabinet. I used the wall cabinet as a computer stand and the laptop shelf for my keyboard and mouse. Both Ludvig’s has nice compartments for various stuff (Hard drives, headset, DVD’s, etc.) The set is complemented with a Vitamin stool. When not in use the shelf is put to rest and the computer is not in the way. I think it is a nice hack and my wife is pleased. Mission accomplished.”

DIY Floating Corner Desk

Today’s featured workspace is an elegant, custom-built computer desk that makes smart use of available space by hanging everything on the wall.

Lifehacker reader and patent illustrator and graphic artist Tom Geisler built this desk using two IKEA butcher block countertops, a few ledgers screwed to the wall and one heavy-duty L-bracket.

Although it’s designed as a standing desk, you could easily modify the idea by lowering the top surface and getting rid of the shelf beneath (or making it narrower) to accommodate a desk chair.

Nice details like the hole cut out for the monitor cord and the additional desk real estate from the L-shape design reflect Tom’s artistic eye. The IKEA countertops start at $89, so it’s a pretty inexpensive desk you could build yourself.

If you have a workspace of your own to show off, add some pictures to the Lifehacker Workspace Show and Tell Pool on Flickr. Include some details about your setup and why it works for you, and you just might see it featured on the front page of Lifehacker.
