A great chair needs no introduction. It doesn't need accessories, a stylish room or even a human to sit inside of it. And if this great chair is your desk chair, you don't need to worry about a fancy, frilly desk. Just DIY a small-impact laptop desk from an IKEA shelf and legs.

The thing about IKEA that lends itself well to DIY projects is their line of sold-separately table tops and table legs. You can literally create anything into a work surface by screwing in a few table legs from IKEA's massive and stylish collection.

So when one Brooklyn resident finds herself living in a studio apartment where space for a big-boy desk is scarce, what's a small cool dweller to do? Get crafty in IKEA's workspace section, building a slim laptop desk from a shelf and legs.

Screwing two VIKA OLEBY legs into the bottom of a BRODER shelf (Grand total= $25), this studio dweller has created a small desk. Just small enough to tuck into a corner, but big enough to house all the working essentials.
