I am one of those people who is always looking for something unique. Something no one has. What is own. This also applies to the interior. Since March 2020 I have been renovating my house myself and wow! That gives me a huge kick, and it gives me my own unique projects that I am super enthusiastic about and that I would like to share with you. This also applies to my new workspot in the bedroom.

Description by Pam (@pamdosal)

I had completely thought it out: my workspot had to be minimalist, not too big and certainly should not look like a 'desk'. The option was to create a custom work spot, and so I did! Along with  where I ordered the materials. Handy or not, this desk is so easy to make and assemble that you can get creative right away.

Let's go!

  • li>" target="_blank" rel="noopener "> 12 mm
    Size: 15.0 x 11.6 cm
    Quantity: 3


  • (Laser) spirit level
  • Marking pencil
  • SDS 8 mm drill
  • 2x HEBGO shelf supports 480 mm
  • 6x Safety anchors M8 x 75 mm
  • 6x Phillips screws 12 mm
  • Bison Mounting kit Poly Max High Tech Express Transparent
  • Someone to help you lift the tray, because it is a bit heavy

Step-by-step plan

  1. Plank and Have the storage bin cut to size by
  2. Determine the position and height of the worktop on the wall (standard height is 74 cm)
  3. Mark it on the wall. TIP: use a laser level
  4. Mount the shelf supports with the safety anchors. Distribute the shelf supports evenly over the worktop
  5. Place the worktop on the shelf supports and secure them with the Phillips screws (screw in from the bottom. Just saying)
  6. We glued the storage bin to the worktop with mounting kit. The box is also attached to the wall. Partitions are also glued (top solution so you don't see any screws)
  7. Ready to work!

We mounted the worktop slightly from the side, because the walls are crooked to walk. This project took us less than two hours to assemble. Thanks to , because they cut and sanded everything to size. Very handy, because it is real: receive the package, assemble it and it is ready to use. All I can say is: think of something, work it out and go for it. Then you create the most beautiful things. As I always teach my kids: you can learn from trying.

I style it with minimalist items such as the nice vases from HM Home and Jysk (budget tip) and an eye-catcher lamp from Madame Garage.
