Ikea Hacked Standing Desk
For weeks, I’ve been looking at various ideas for “hacking” a standing desk to add to my standard office desk, and last week I finally did it! I didn’t use the LACK table idea because I’m barely 5’5″ and it would be too tall. Instead I took two EKBY MOSSBY stainless steel shelves and added CAPITA stainless legs to make the platforms for the screen and the keyboard. (I used these shelves because the steel is wrapped around all four edges, whereas the wood shelves are unfinished on one long side and I didn’t want to paint).
The taller shelf measures 46 7/8″ x 11″ to which I added four 8″ CAPITA legs and the keyboard rests on the 31 1/8″ x 7 1/2″ shelf plus four 4″ legs. It’s sturdy and sharp looking. Now I just need to get the cushioned mat to stand on and I’ll be set. Love it!
