DIY Project: Create A Standing Desk From An Old IKEA Coffee Table

If you have an old coffee table lying around, and happen to be in need of a new floor standing desk, take Sean's shining example and convert it into a snazzy living room workspace. By replacing the legs with 2x4's painted black, he's created a new home for his Macbook Pro, home office printer, and miscellaneous tech gear. Sure, there's some shameful wiring just begging for extra attention, but it's a great DIY conversion nonetheless. More goodies, after the jump.

And the fun doesn't stop there. Sean's living room is also maximized for productivity - featuring star pieces such as IKEA's signature laptop table for those lazy nights of computing, watching terrible programming on E!

Another clever idea happens to be seen in the background of the photo above; of road signs converted into makeshift foldout dining tables. Not only is it a highly effective solution and creative solution for small spaces, but it's cute and quirky, too!
