Double desk, light and full of storage space

Materials: Vika Alex, Capita, Micke

Description: My girlfriend needed to have her own space, but I needed to have a place for my Personal Computer.

I found the creative-ikea-desk on Ikeahackers, and it gave me inspiration.

So I used 2 MICKE drawer units for the both ends of the workstation, and VIKA ALEX in the middle to hide my personal computer.

Thanks to capita legs I have been able to add a table top above the 3 consoles.

The next steps are :

- A USB hub encased in the shelf
- Ventilate the console hosting the PC.

    What is the desktop piece from? Where did you get it and what size is the top?

    That’s exactly what I need to build my workstation! I’ll probably replace the drawer units with something to hold Kassett boxes, but other than that it’s perfect.

  3. Looks really good, but isn’t the desk surface now uncomfortably high?

    Super !!! J’ai fait un bureau aussi avec ces caissons et plan de travail. J’avais aussi besoin de ventiler ceux où il y avait les tours de Pc. La solution a été de faire 6 gros trous sur le panneau arrière à l’aide d’une scie cloche. Depuis c’est parfait !!!

    Had to post up and let you know how groovy I think that design is. Top work, mate!
