Desk in a Bookcase - IKEA Hackers

Desk in a Bookcase

Desk in bookcase

Materials: JOKKMOKK Tabletop, VISDALEN Bookcase

When you have a small living room and urgently need a desk I can show you a very simple and quick hack.
Our old VISDALEN bookcase was perfect for the 30 minute project and so we took a remaining JOKKMOKK tabletop, cut it to the right size (we cut the length and the width from the tabletop is the new length for the desk) and used 2 legs from the former table. That’s all – now the new “bookdesk” is ready for use.

The best thing is that the JOKKMOKK tabletop fits perfectly to the VISDALEN shelves in the bookcase. I think I will paint the legs from the desk in the same white colour.
