Description: The purpose here is to reduce the footprint of my chunky computer desk that looked so imposing.
Instead of ditching the old computer table, I reused the table tops from the old computer table. I used a jigsaw to cut the board to reduce the depth (since the new computer is going to be much smaller).
I used a pair Capita brackets to mount the smaller board to create a second tier.
I placed the printer on the top tier and the whole wall started looking bulky again. So I built an Ekby wall shelf against the wall under the table. I housed the printer on that wall shelf.
Next I mounted Summera Keyboard tray under the bottom tier.
I bought this tiny little Dell computer Optiplex 7010 – Ultra Small Form Factor. For come reasons, it fits the Vika Annefors very much. So I bought 1 Ekby Osten shelf, cut it into 2 pieces to create 2 more tiers of shelves to house the computer and the audio box.
The computer CPU now fits into the Vika storage unit perfectly.
