Office workstation from two Hemnes bookcases and large Hemnes chest of drawers.


This workstation setup is comprised of two Hemnes bookcases, one Hemnes bedroom chest of drawers, three clocks, four frames, two work station lamps, various boards, paint and all that.

I cut off the dresser legs to make it more desk height. I notched out the dresser top to allow the bookcases to fit snugly against it, appearing to be one unit.  Then I put boards to span between the bookcases and painted them with chalkboard paint. I built a monitor stand to hide the keyboard and mouse and various stuff. The computer and all the cables fit inside the drawer drawers. I left the back off the dresser to make sure that there is plenty of ventilation. Then mounted the lamps on the side of each monitor… and hung the frames.
