Ekby Hemnes Standing Desk Hack – iMac

Materials: EKBY HEMNES shelf, EKBY VALTER brackets, BESTA shelf

We moved to small apartment in NYC and had no room for desk. Decided to create simple standing desk to save room. I purchased Ekby Hemnes board and 2x Ekby Valter brackets. This fits the new 27″ iMac well, but not much room for keyboard or mouse. I also built TV center with besta shelves and had lots of leftover shelf separator boards in same color. I got some screws and drilled the besta shelf into bottom of Hemnes board. Now I have plenty of room for keyboard and mouse and some shelf space next to iMac for accessories.

    Very sleek! I couldn’t stand that close to the monitor though.
