Micke & Byse Built in Desk

Materials: Vika Byse, Galant Leg , Micke

Description: We wanted a built in desk for our 10×10 foot office. We decided to buy two Vika Byse table tops and cut them down to size. For the middle drawers we used the all white Micke drawer unit and for the outside legs we bought the Galant Legs. There are a lot of great leg choices at Ikea but the Galant legs are adjustable, and that was important to us so that it can be used for any drawer unit, no matter what the height. We think it looks great!

    I’m curious about what you did with the original legs. I am looking to buy some like that but IKEA doesn’t sell those particular u shape legs individually.

    How did you attached the Galant legs? Did you have toi attach the entire galant frame to the bottom og the desk top?

    Hello, can you please tell me what kind of curtain you have there? it looks like a semi-transparent foil rolling-shutter. Is it from Ikea too? It looks like it lets in pretty much light, yet still defends your privacy.

    Thanks a lot for your replay, Maria!
    Can someone suggest how to lift the Micke up 2″ from the floor, preferably without cutting…?

    This is really nice desk set up. I am going to do the same for the apartment I am about to move in on the 20 this month.
    Would you please tell me what is the hight of the Micky without the rollers.
