When you buy a desk at IKEA, you don't have to settle for what they offer. Most of their furniture can be hacked and customised to your needs if you can figure out a way to do it yourself. That's what IKEA Hacker Tee did, and the result was a slim desk with storage and a keyboard tray that's greater than any of its parts.
I was looking for the perfect size desk for our spare room. We had the Vika Amon with some legs but it was too large and cumbersome for the space. I spent some time looking at hacks, nothing really worked with what we were looking for, so we made our own.
Tee took a MALM Occasional Table, VIKA ANNEFORS storage table and a Rubbermaid shelf to create the desk you see above. Combining the two IKEA pieces didn't require much more than fitting two good things together, so it's not a difficult hack. The hardest part seems to be turning a shelf into a keyboard tray, but that doesn't look too difficult either. For an afternoon of effort, you get a pretty awesome desk on the cheap. As someone in the market for a newer, sturdier, slimmer desk, I may be building on of these myself next month.
