Turn Your Dresser Into a Desk With This Clever DIY!

If you're yearning for an office nook but don't have extra room to spare, you'll appreciate House Tweaking blogger Dana's creative solution. Allow us to introduce you to the dresker — a dresser-meets-desk hybrid that transforms a bedroom into a functioning office in no time flat!

After finding a dresser with a low enough height on Craigslist, Dana's husband busted out his drill and some hardware and got to work. The dresser is the perfect height for accommodating a laptop (on top of the dresser) and a wireless keyboard and mouse tucked into the drawer. Holes were even drilled into the back of the drawer so that a phone can be charged while sitting at the desk — genius! The finishing detail was a roll of self-adhering cork. Why the cork? Using it to line the drawer gives the surface enough grip so that a mousepad isn't needed.
