Pinned It, Made It, Loved It: DIY Mounted Wall Desk

DIY Mounted Wall DeskHappy Monday friends! Boy am I excited to show you a preview of my room makeover today! There’s still a bit left to do, but I really couldn’t contain my excitement about this diy mounted wall desk. After rounding up these creative workspaces, I fell in love Old Brand New’s midcentury wall desk. So, instead of buying a new desk for my office space, I decided to give Dab’s tutorial a try!

In all honesty, I was a bit overwhelmed looking at the instructions online, but I have to tell you, it’s SO much easier than it seems and I am beyond thrilled that I went for it.

DIY Mounted Wall DeskI decided to paint my brackets a variety of different colors because the more color the better, right? I used the laminate boards recommended in the original¬†tutorial, but part of me wishes I would have made custom ones because the screws (that hold the board onto the bracket) aren’t as secure. It did, however, save a ton of time and I can always go back later and add them if I want.

DIY Mounted Wall DeskOverall, the unit cost about $220 for all the supplies and took a little over an hour to install. The fun part is that the shelves can me moved up, down and around, so if I ever get bored with my space, I can change it up for free.

So what do you think?! Maybe it’s the fact that the pin actually worked, or that now my room is much more colorful, but I’m totally smitten with it! I can’t wait to show you the full space next week!
