Counter height built in desk
Materials: Ikea Door and Shelf brackets
Description: I was looking to install a counter height desk in the odd space in my sunroom. I looked into the price of wood and paint and brackets and it seems to be a bit much for what I wanted.
I ended up at Ikea and found a cabinet door, covered in white veneer (perfect for a desk-top) that was even the perfect measurement. I installed 4 large wall brackets to the wall using heavy duty wall anchors and then used construction adhesive to mount the door on top of them (this was to avoid having screw holes on the desk top.
I am so happy with the outcome!
