I already designed an Arcade Cabinet Standing Desk, thought I’d make one for sitting people. This was inspired by my L-shaped IKEA desk; lately I’ve been thinking about giving it a Pac-Man vinyl cover, because its laminate surface is in rough shape.
Just need colorful t-molding around the edge of the desk surface, and a marquee for the leg (which could be back-lit if you want to be fancy).

This was inspired by DIY Creators’ Floating Desk, I just went with a Floppy Disk look. The disk holes make for really good grommets! This is a generic design, I think it would look cooler if it had a Commodore 64 or Apple II theme.
You could probably build a PC into the back panel if you wanted, or at the very least incorporate a power strip into it, for tidier cable management.
