Office Inspiration: Building a Standing Desk


As a person who works from home, I definitely understand the importance of having a versatile workspace, and have long loved the idea of building myself a custom standing desk. (I’m short, so this would solve both the counters-are-too-high problem and the ow-my-back-hurts-from-leaning-over problem when I’m doing non-seated projects at my worktable. Perfect!) If you’ve been thinking the same thing, you’ll definitely want to check out this fantastic space-saving standing desk tutorial from Emma at A Beautiful Mess!


Build it this weekend! Head on over to A Beautiful Mess to see the full how-to.
