The Hidden Creative Compartment Workspace

Today's featured workspace has a secret. While it looks like just another desk built from an IKEA bookcase, hidden beneath the hinged desktop you'll find sound-mixing equipment and a huge whiteboard.

The whiteboard is actually the back of the surface top. Flickr user Carel Starreveld's IKEA hacked desk is pretty cleverly constructed, both with the added concealed compartment and how the top is built to lift up without harming the wall-mounted monitor. Carl says this is a standing desk with the possibility for sitting too.

    And where do you put your legs?
