What do you do when you need a small home office or your kids need a place to do homework and there’s not much space to work with?  Shelves are an inexpensive and easy DIY solution!

Combining shelves with a console table or laptop desk gives you enough space to work in without feeling overcrowded.  If you don’t have a table/desk you can find them in the online classifieds for reasonable prices or you can install a deep shelf on brackets.
