IKEA items used: Rast and Kallax
The Rast dresser was painted to match the turquoise Kallax I already had.
I planked together 1×6 and 1×3 boards to create the desk top, with a lip at one end.
A scrap of 2×4 with small angle brackets along the top was attached to the wall at the studs level with the top of the Rast dresser to provide support along the back of the desk.
The other end of the desk top has a lip that attaches to the side of the Kallax with Wall Dog screws. A 2×2 serves as a leg for the outside corner, and is attached with another angle bracket.
Now I have plenty of storage, and a place to draw up plans for more IKEA hacks!
