You can buy a lot of good furniture, but with a few hacks you can make it great. Take a little time this weekend to create an awesome arcade console coffee table, minimal floating desk, or one of many awesome DIY furniture upgrades you can perform on the cheap.
Some of the best furniture hacks happen in your (home) office, whether they’re just practical or a lot of fun. If you have a small space, one of the coolest ways to use the little area you have is to create a floating desk.
You can easily accomplish by installing an IKEA laptop desk onto your wall. Wall-mounted workspaces allow you flexibility of placement (at least initially) so you can create a sitting or standing desk—whichever you prefer.
Let’s not waste any time and get straight to the most important hack for any living room: the classic arcade coffee table. Who doesn’t want easy access to PAC-MAN with old school joysticks and buttons? If a coffee table arcade is too much of a spacial commitment for you, a nightstand can be hacked for the same purpose as well.
In the event that old school arcade games aren’t your cup of tea, you still have plenty of great furniture hacks to choose from for the living room. Here are some of our favorites:
If you just want to build a standard standing desk however, there are several ways to do it. One of our favorites is a hacked IKEA desk that uses height-adjustable legs. Not only can you adjust the standing height to suit you, but if you ever feel like going back to a sitting desk temporarily or indefinitely you can. If you’re just in the mood for a standard but creative desk on the cheap, just make one out of a door.
