When I needed a side table/ laptop stand I was looking for something industrial until I saw the price tag. Most options were well over a hundred dollars so I went searching for an IKEA hack. After some searching, I found the IKEA VITTSJÖ which has a metal frame. I measured the chair I wanted to use it with and it was snug but fit over the arm.
