It’s been about 3 years since I converted to a standing desk for work. I’ve found I’m able to concentrate a bit better, my back hurts less, and I just feel better throughout the day while standing. Since moving into our new house in July, I started sitting again because of a built-in desk that was already in my new office. Last week I decided to rip that sucker out and get back to standing. What I ended up with was a very minimal standing setup, with a newer sitting area for when my feet need a break. The whole project cost around $80, which isn’t too bad considering how much standing desks go for online. I’ve posted some pics below. All that’s really left is to paint the walls, make a small shelf for my laptop to sit, and make another small shelf for the printer to sit.
