    Very innovative! Can you please tell me how to hack my ikea table into a computer desk. I have this white table that has these adjustable metal legs. On top of it are 2 monitors (one for each of my kid) and may be a bit crowded if I placed the 2 keyboards, 2 mice and other things on top of the table. I’m thinking of how I can attach a pull out shelf (the kind that rolls in and out) just underneath enough for the mice and keyboard to fit. Any suggestions?

    How about 2 separate pull out shelves for each keyboard and mouse?

    Thanks very much!
