Look!: DIY X-ray Light Desk

111008desk-04.jpgWe were first drawn to the simple lines of this freestanding desk mixed with the vintage-y chairs and black wall. And at first glance, it looks like a white, modern desk. We were not aware of the DIY nature of this desk until we starting scrolling through commonhumans' photo stream. It's actually a X-Ray light turned on its side. View the desk lit up (which looks amazing) after the jump.

Commonhumans made this desk by taking a vintage X-ray backlight that he found at a university surplus store. To DIY this desk yourself, you'll need wall brackets to mount the x-ray light perpendicular to the wall. Commonhumans says the light is helpful when he does tracing for graphic and interior design. We wouldn't mind having this desk just for mundane paperwork--we love this amazing DIY desk!
