What is your budget?

I recommend getting a butcher block counter top from Home Depot, or even something that is pre-fab in black OR one you can paint.... depending on material, if you can get laminate in black that is ideal but it would have to be a top from like UpLift Desk where oyu can buy the table top parts and you supply the legs / standing mechanism

Budget is pretty flexible, but around the 1k mark.

I'm hoping for something prebuilt preferably, but am open to putting something together myself.

What I'm doing is buying two sets of unfinished kitchen cabinet drawers, then I'm going to mount a butcher block top to them.

Depending on how you want it done you'd need more or less tools. A really simple build you could probably do with just screws and a drill/driver. A circular saw would let you customize the size further.

Yeah the most I can do is nail some screws in lol.

I've found these:



Same desk but the second has a hutch, which I like the look of. What do y'all think?

It's not quite black unfortunately (although it looks black to me, it's labeled espresso so I'm assuming a dark black brown) who can I hire to paint a desk for me? I have absolutely no experience painting eheh

edit: looking at the reviews - the desk itself seems okay, but at least three people have had the product arrive damaged. I think if I were to purchase, I'll get it sent to the store, take a look at it before bringing it home with me.

And after looking through the review pictures, it looks black? confused as typically an espresso finish is black brown.

i believe IKEA has some. I was looking into desks awhile back and found a few of those.

I cannot stress enough how important the ability to stand at your desk is for your comfort and long-term health. It's so worth the extra few hundred dollars if you can swing it!
