DIY Laptop Station

Updated: Oct 5, 2020

This has been a very popular post over on my Instagram account and I have received a ton of questions about it over the last week, so I knew I needed a landing spot for it here on my website as well. I'm so happy that so many people have found this little makeover inspiring.

As many of you know, we are a homeschooling family, but you may not know that our high school students take their classes online. They have been content to work in various spaces around our house but I knew it was time to give them a permanent landing spot. I cannot even tell you how much functionality, and even productivity, this little budget friendly makeover has brought to our home. I mean, who wouldn't be more productive with a laptop station?

This post is a collaboration with Liberty University Online Academy so I am sharing all of the DIY information for this makeover on their blog, which you can find here > There, you can find a list of tools and supplies needed to make the desk as well as the color and product used to makeover the cabinet.

I have also created a video tutorial for how I made the simple desk. Click the image below to head over to my YouTube channel for viewing.

I hope you feel inspired to try a simple DIY and maybe even look at some older pieces in your home with a new eye. To answer all of the remaining questions I've received through my Instagram DMs, I'm creating a source post for this room, so stay tuned!

Until next time...

Hi!  I'm Laura - pastor's wife, homeschooling mom of five and avid DIY-er.  Simple Farmhouse style, to me, is a handmade home that works on a budget.  It's having a table that can handle lots of 'love' from five kids without any stress about keeping things perfect.  It's finding simple and creative approaches to functionality and design.  And it's incorporating pieces with a past in order to remind us of why the present is so precious.  It's all about family.  After all, the most important things in life happen at home.
