James, inspired by the very droolworthy Milk Desk, went hacking to create a white and minimalistic work and music station. I love how the desk rolls away to reveal the keyboard.
The IKEA items used:
VIKA ARTUR legs (x2) — $60
Queen size MALM headboard(x1) — $10 in the as-is
LACK shelf (x1) — $25
Wall shelf metal tracking, 48″ (x2)
Pipe insulation (to dampen the rolling sound)
It involved lots of dremeling work. The end result more than made up for it.
Total cost: ~ $130
Cost of Milk Desk: $4700
James sent in assembly instructions. See them here.
