Corner Secretary Desk for Small Room

Wood Corner Desk with Rug

If you live in a small apartment, or even if you only have a small amount of space in your home, you can create a study, work and reading corner secretary desk through a simple DIY project.


Measure the area that you have defined as your work nook. It is important to write down the width, height and depth of the area so that you can appropriately plan for your project. Decide what style you want for your DIY desk or hutch in nook. If you want a more modern style, then choose darker colored wood in your DIY project. Cut a piece of wood for the desk; this wood should measure to fit horizontally in your unit. You should have enough that when you sit down, your chair slides comfortably under the desk high.

The wood should also be deep enough for the type of personal work space you need. Spot worked before adding it to shelves. Mount wood with shelves brackets – add the nook space that you would have a deep shelf. Add shelves above desk space – these will be useful for storing your books, craft supplies and other tools. Accessorize with coordinating vases, a cute chair. Your corner will be a haven for hard work and pleasant reading.
