 The easiest and most space-saving version for a DIY desk, is a design with a folding cabinet door to ‘transform’ into a desk. The cabinet door should of course be tested in advance whether it can withstand the laptop and too many books may be a bit of an overload. Second, the cabinet door should be at a suitable height  – if it is higher, you can use a bar stool chair instead. Paint the door in a contrasting color to make it look better – and you are ready. Similar option provides the bookcase – the bottom shelf you can simply use as a desk.
