This custom workstation hits the mark on several fronts: the 44" bar height makes the surface ideal for working from either a stool or while standing, the curtains hide away any unwanted elements like cords and cables from view, a LED backlit illuminated pegboard offers both wall storage and ambient light, and a refinished surface top sports a custom image transfer sealed with a soft satin poly finish to personalize the desk. And it's completely DIY!
Graphic designer and creative DIY'er, Chris has a few additional DIY ideas worth checking out over at his Tumblr for those with a penchant for reusing discarded, vintage, or flea market finds. His vintage broken yardstick turned wall shelf above or repurposed vintage art frame turned into chalkboard below are also worth a gander for anyone looking to decorate their home office in historic style with budget in mind.
