Standing desks are a great way to relieve back pain, increase your focus and experiment with desk form and function. Today’s featured workspace is an antique tool chest repurposed as a beautiful and functional standing desk.
Lifehacker reader Jamie Rev used his transition to a standing desk as an opportunity to break away from traditional desk shapes. Rather than loft up a standard desk to standing height he instead repurposed his grandfather’s beautiful solid wood tool chest. With the addition of matching stand the tool chest became a perfect and storage-packed standing desk with just enough room for him to stand and write or use his laptop paired with wall-mounted HDTV — which does double duty as an external monitor and an office television.
