Besta Expedit computer desk


Materials: Besta, Expedit Desk, Malm Chest

Description: I was looking for a simple way to re-use an Expedit Desk and to hide the computer monitor, keyboard and mouse.

The solution was to use a Malm Chest as one of the “legs” of the desk, and a Besta Shelf Unit with sliding doors.

Simple but it works!

    Wow – I have been looking for a way to use the Besta shelf for a computer, but was having trouble working out which desk to put it on – that looks great.

    That looks great! I think I would add a whiteboard/chalkboard or corkboard on the sliding door the accomodate notes and messages.
