Flickr user Shawn McBee has a most unusual DIY desk. It’s made up of 14 wooden wine crates and a matching door for the desk top.
All those crates are actually functional storage units too. Shawn says:
This desk is made of 14 Wine Crates (8 underneath for support, 6 on top for storage only) and a 24″ wide Hollow-Core door purchased at Home Depot for $ 22.
All 14 crates are used for storing items, 3 have a sliding door. The 4 non-visible crates in the back are for storing computer components, such as my Modem, router, NAS, etc.
Now I just need a decent chair. The one pictured is a $ 10 chair from Ikea.
With the large windows for natural light and the subdued wall color, this crazy workspace looks quite put together as a whole (pun not intended). You can see more shots of it in Shawn’s photostream linked below.
If you have a workspace of your own to show off, share them with us by adding it to our Lifehacker Workspace Show and Tell Flickr pool. Make sure any photos you include are at least 640×360. Keeping them to 16:9 helps, too! Include a little text about the stuff you used, how you came up with the design, and any other relevant details. If your clever organization and good design sense catches our eye, you might be the next featured workspace.
