DIY-ify: A Do It Yourself Office


Skip the normal desk and make your own! Using two Alex Drawer Units plus a Vika tabletop (via Ikea) you can easily do this! Attach the tabletop to the rolling drawers using metal L-brackets. Add a Zig Zag bookshelf (via Brianna Kufa Metal Designs) to the top to keep books within reach, add a light and some accessories: done!

  1. Absolutely LOVE this! All those drawers would be SO helpful.

  2. I love this! What a great and simple idea!

  3. This is a pretty pricey DIY. At this cost, it would be much more efficient and thrifty to find a desk at a thrift shop or just buy an ikea desk and accessorize!

  4. Great picks Chelsea! I especially love the green table lamp. Fresh and modern :)

  5. Cute idea but with those two files are 26″ w each and that top is only 47″ w… not gonna work!
