Low Budget Table Top Shelf + Cable Solution

Materials: BESTA VARA Drawer Front, RATIONELL VARIERA Shelf Insert, BILLY Book-end

Description: For an extremely low budget hack, after various different combination in mind, I’ve decided to go with these.

PREPARATION:
The reason I used BESTA VARA drawer front as a shelf was because the size was exactly what I wanted without sawing and stuff. Also the drawer has grooves that can be used to do something like a sliding door but I didn’t use it for this project.

For the leg, I used RATIONELL VARIERA shelf’s leg instead of the more popular CAPITA legs cause it’s cheaper and I can make full used of the metal shelf as well.

STEP 1:
Screw the leg to shelf with small screws. The one came with the shelf can’t be used as those were flat based screws.

STEP 2:
Using a plier or hammer, flatten the two wide side of the metal shelf to be used as a wall.

STEP 3:
Then pressed the left/right side with a plier so it will wrap the leg in between a little bit to make the wall stand in place.

STEP 4:
Place the BILLY Book-end in between the two legs/ wall to hide the gap. The door can still be pulled open softly to hide all your messy cabling and harddisk in the hidden area.
