– One RIBBA picture ledge. (in my case white)
– One shelf EKBY HEMNES
– One LEKSVIK Desk, black
I first bought the LEKSVIK to use as a computer desk in my small living room.
The monitor was way too low to be ergonomic so I added a stand with the shelf and picture ledge.
The idea of the monitor stand using RIBBA picture ledge was taken from an other Ikea hack. (thanks)
Here is the modification I did.
1 – Saw the RIBBA to fit it under the shelf.
2 – Add one screw hole in both RIBBA part.
3 – Drill some hole in the shelf to fit with the RIBBA part to be sure the shelf would not crack. Be sure you don’t go trough the shelf. I use electrical tape on my drill bit to know when to stop.
4 – Screw everything together.
