I used a VIKA AMON table top (alternatively, LINNMON) combined with 4 VIKA CURRY legs (replaced with ADILS) for the main desk base.
However, the problem with this was that I didn’t have enough room for my keyboard and my monitor.
So, I decided to build another shelf using 1 LACK wall shelf and a pack of CAPITA legs.
Now there is room for my keyboard, my monitor and my speakers, with room left over!
The great thing now it that I don’t need to move everything around to use certain equipment. It’s all there ready for me. Most of the wires are also hidden underneath the desk, with exception for my USB hub and wireless mouse base!
1 x VIKA AMON Table top – £20 ($31.69) 4 x VIKA Curry – £8 (£12.67) 1 x LACK Wallshalf – £9.99 ($15.83) 4 x CAPITA legs (1 pack) – £8 ($12.67)
