It is very important to have an ergonomic configuration on a desk – especially when you are working long hours at the computer.
STEP 1: MEASURE AND CUT THE SIDE SUPPORTS
Measure and draw lines for the side supports. Cut the marked side support shapes out with a jigsaw. Be sure to cut along a straight line.
STEP 2: ATTACH SLATS
Attach the first 1″ x 3″ slat at the bottom of the side supports using wood glue and finish nails. Similarly, attach a 1×3 slat at the top of the side supports using wood glue and finish nails.
STEP 3: FINISH AS DESIRED
Paint or stain in the color of your choice. I decided to whitewash my footrest to coordinate with my DIY Modern Farmhouse desk.
The DIY footrest is ready!
