This DIY computer armoire ideal is ideal for small spaces. Do you live in a house, apartment, or condominium that has an extra built in sink? I can help you with that. I have the solution!
Many homes today are designed with an extra sink, located just outside a bathroom. Here, I will show you how I made a very affordable, easy-to-construct, and removable computer armoire.
DIY Computer Armoire Procedure
To make this sturdy DIY computer armoire, I had to measure the sink area and determine what would be adequate to hold the size and weight of a computer system. Using inexpensive plywood, I constructed the table top. The legs were made with 2 x 4s. A coat of paint was added to the 2 x4s to match the walls.
I made a fabric cover for the table top and chose a vibrant berry pattern. This choice was practical, yet stylish. I found a white metal shelf unit for the printer. This was placed on top of the computer table.
The final task was to install the computer along with the printer. As you can see, it all fit in place and is quite “impressive looking”. The electrical outlet was in a convenient spot near the DIY computer armoire.
The printer was placed on the white metal shelving. There was plenty of extra space for an additional item like computer paper.
DIY Computer Armoire Conclusion
Maybe you don’t have much storage space. However, you can create additional space with a DIY Computer armoire.
The home owner can go back to using the sink, since the whole project is temporary. This is important to consider if you are living in a house, apartment, or condominium for a short time and plan to move to another home.
One tip is to shut off the water supply for that sink. It is usually underneath the sink, in the cupboard area. Open the cupboard just under the sink to find this. Turn the water supply off so that no water will come out the sink faucet.
