One of the proudest DIY achievements in my new home was FINALLY building a desk that would work for both Ursula and myself and look homey and comfortable just off the living room. This little space proved perfect for an IKEA hack I've been iterating on for years. This desk is nice and wide (but not too deep) so that two people or kids can work at the same time, and it's low enough for both sizes to work comfortably too.
