As we start to settle into the new year, it's time to embrace new projects. We find the best way to get the creative juices flowing is to refresh a tired workspace. 

Whether you’d like an easy IKEA hack, or to build your tabletop from scratch, these five projects demonstrate a range of amazing hairpin leg desks you can make at home.
