With 4 kids from elementary to high school & Jason & I working from home, desk space is sooooo important!!!

DIY Desk ONE – Incredible 8 foot long Pallet Desk for Two

(DIY Desk Step by Step Instructions – HERE)

Our pallet desk has been a game changer in our home gym/ office.

We love that two people can work at the same time & this DIY wooden desk takes up very little floor space.

It is also my teenage boys favorite desk for gaming since it is opposite our entertainment center that holds their Play station.

DIY Wall Mounted Desk TWO – DIY Kitchen Desk & Homework Station

(DIY Desk Step by Step Instructions HERE)

This DIY wall mounted desk has been wonderful for our younger elementary aged kids doing their homework.

Since they often need help with their homework… usually when I am cooking dinner… this DIY painted wooden desk works because I keep them close by. ūüôā

DIY Desk THREE – DIY Built in Desk

(DIY Desk – Step by Step Instructions HERE)

Our oldest’s DIY built in wooden desk is great because it allows for plenty of storage with his built in bookcases.

It also takes up very little floor space in his navy bedroom.

DIY Desk FOUR – Kids Red Desk Redo

(DIY Desk Step by Step Instructions HERE)

Our youngest’s kids desk is hands down the easiest of our DIY desks.

The red spray paint we added to it really pops against the wood top in his built in bedroom that once was our closet.

It is perfect desk for him to color or do short homework assignments.

DIY Desk FIVE – Built in Wall Mounted Desk

(See this Teenager’s DIY Desk HERE)

We changed up our oldest’s DIY desk in order to add a queen bed to his room.

Having a larger bed is very convenient for when family comes & stays & this new wall mounted built in desk is great because it takes up very little floor space.

DIY Built in Desk SIX – Secretary turned Built in Desk/Dresser

(Step by Step Instructions for Turning a Secretary into a Built in Desk/Dresser HERE)

To save space in one of our teenage boys rooms we created a built in desk & dresser from a thrift store bought secretary.

It provides a ton of storage in our boys built in bedroom while giving us lots of floor space.

DIY Desk EIGHT – Built in Desk under Window

(Step by Step Instructions HERE)

Our son Ryan, needed a little more desk space once he started high school so we added a wall mounted desk for him under the window in his built in bedroom.

His blue rolling chair fits under it perfectly & he loves sitting at his window while doing his homework.

It is also one of my favorite DIY desks to create!
