But if you’re looking for a simple (and affordable) standing desk converter, we have a few ideas for you.
Top choice: LACK tables
The LACK range of tables is one of the best choices for a standing desk converter. It’s light which means you can easily lift it onto or off your desk. It has chunky legs which allows you to screw in brackets. And cheap. That needs no explanation.
For a slimmer version, use the LACK TV stand instead as pictured above. You can omit the bottom shelf and add in a deeper KOMPLEMENT shelf, which serves as the keyboard tray. Trim the shelf to the right width and attach with brackets.
Here’s another version with the LACK TV stand, placed on top of a HEMNES desk.
Instead of installing the shelf at the recommended level, raise it to just 3.5 cm from the top so you can hang a pull-out keyboard tray under it. The shelf is still good for papers and stationery.
