DIY Ikea Desk Hacks

This year when we decided my twin girls needed separate rooms I gave up my office to Avery's bedroom (don't worry, I wasn't heartbroken to be forced to move into a bigger office, lol). Woohoo for new designs and ideas!!! I started looking for new desks for my “new” office (also known as my twin girls' old playroom) and there was nothing that really was working for me, or for my budget. So I turned to my old stand by favorite–Ikea desk hacks.

I could not believe how many amazing ideas there are out there! Ikea products are SO versatile, and so many other bloggers have come up with some amazing Ikea desk hacks! In fact, the desk in my old office was also an Ikea desk hack (click here for that tutorial) but I decided to go even bigger and bolder this time. I seriously love that you can customize Ikea pieces easily, and create your own Ikea desk hack that will fit your space and your style perfectly! I pulled together a list of my favorites to share with you. Get ready to get majorly inspired by these 14 Ikea desk hacks!
