DIY children’s desk with shelves for a Scandinavian style bedroom

Kee Klamp Scandinavian style desk with shelves

If you are looking for a Scandinavian style desk that also includes storage space, then take inspiration from interior stylist Jenny Meerman, who built this simple, yet beautiful piece of furniture for her son’s bedroom.



The structure of this Nordic style desk can be built using Kee Klamp fittings and tube.

Use scaffolding planks or any reclaimed wook boards for the shelves and desk to save money.


What fittings you need

To build the structure for this DIY desk, you will need:

  • Flanges (61 Type Fittings) for the feet of the table
  • 90° Elbows (Type 15 Fittings)
  • Two Socket Crosses (Type 26 Fittings)
  • Collars (Type 75 Fittings) – optional, to create distance between the tube and scaffolding planks and for extra support
  • Tube

On top of that, have 2 wood planks cut to size for the shelves, as well as a bigger one for the actual desk.



The final result will be a work station that is easy to put together, take apart or modify when the kids grow up.

Easy to modify or disassemble

A modular system such as pipe and fittings allows for easy structural modifications: you can add or remove fittings to raise, lower or completely modify the desk. You can also reuse these for other pieces of furniture once you decide you don’t like the original desk anymore.


Try it yourself

If you feel inspired, it is easy to build your own DIY desk using pipe and fittings and we can help you design the furniture you need.
