My DIY Standing Desk MOD!

When I started setting up my office the first thing I needed was a desk.  After looking on Facebook Marketplace I finally found one!  The only problem was that it was a little too short and I really have been wanting to join the standing desk movement.  So for $20 I bought some posts at the local hardware store and got to work!  I also added a shelf.  So far I am LOVING this desk and I can’t wait to show you how I did it.

I used this site to help me get an idea of how high to build it, HERE

The stool comes from Target, HERE
