DIY: Personalized Laptop Desk
Use your laptop with ease even if you're on the bed or couch with this easy project
A laptop desk can serve as your mini workstation while you’re lying on a bed or sitting on a couch. It can also be a great alternative for your room, if you don't have space for a desk or table.
Let this simple step-by-step guide help you craft a mobile laptop desk that will surely be useful in your space.
- Staple Gun
- Craft board
- Foam square
- Fabric Paint (optional)
- Paint brush (optional)
- Glue Gun
- Choose a piece of recycled wood or a wooden mobile desk. The recommended size is 17x14” but you can pick a larger size if you want.
- Place the wood on the foam and trace a pattern. After tracing, cut the foam using the scissors.
- Using a staple gun, attach the foam on the bottom side of the laptop desk. Make sure that there are no exposed staples hanging out as these might cause scratches when you place it on your lap.
- Then, wrap your chosen fabric around the bottom of the foam. Use a glue or staple gun to secure the edges of the fabric. Make sure that the fabric is attached completely so it won't be easily torn off. Once done, trim the edges of the fabric for a clean finish.
RL Tip: If you want to add more designs to your project, you may use fabric paint to create a unique creative touch.
