If you're renovating your home, one of the best places to salvage materials for new furniture is from your own junk pile. Check out this simple idea for upcycling old floor planks into a built-in desk!

After these floorboards were pulled up to make way for a new installation, they were assembled and glued onto plywood backing for the desktop and drawer fronts. The desk was then fitted into an alcove, serving as both a workspace and a preserved piece of the home's history. As a bonus, it even matches the new wood floors!
