How I Turned an Old Door Into Our New Computer Desk.


When we bought our house five years ago, my husband found an old door in the garage. Since we needed a desk to put our computers on, we used the door as it was propped up on a couple of filing cabinets for a couple of years before I eventually painted it to "spruce" it up. Then we found a metal base for it at a resale store and had a piece of glass cut to fit the top, now it's a beautiful new addition to our family room.

    You can use the hole from the door handle to run your computer wires through it.

    People spend too much time sitting that ”sitting is the new smoking” ... iow not healthy. Stand up computer desks are all the rage now. Offices that have them report the employees are more alert and productive using the standing rather than sitting desks. So here’s to your health 🥂👍🏻
