Build Your Own IKEA Pallet Desk

Build Your Own IKEA Pallet Desk

Lately, I've been on a sort of re-purposing spree. Whenever I see a piece of trashed construction wood thrown out in the back alley, I dream at all the furniture possibilities as a showstopping piece for my space. So when I saw Pierre Vedel's simple pallet desk, I instantly drooled at the thought of piecing together a shabby-chic desk even with a college student budget!

Originally, Pierre set out to create the cheapest, most functional desk possible. So where else can you find cheaper desk legs but IKEA?

4 IKEA VIKA legs will set you back a couple of bucks. A single pallet you can find behind your local supermarket. 5mm pieces of plywood and floor boards can be used for the bottom storage. Mix it all together and voila - instant $40 desk!

Instructions on how you can put it all together over here.
