Ikea MICKE Desk Hack

Newer Older

My Ikea Desk hack. Total cost was about 60 bucks (AUD). Parts used were the CAPITA stainless steel brackets and the EKBY AMUND shelf all on a MICKE Desk. There are also DIODER led strips behind the monitors and under the shelf.

Love to hear your comments.

Few people inquired about what gear I use here so here's a little info:

Behringer MS20 24-Bit/192 kHz Digital 20-Watt Stereo Near Field Monitors
Has optical input, way better quality than your crappy computer speakers. Good price too...

Dual Monitor stand for 17 - 24in LCD Monitors
Pretty heavy and is pretty adjustable so good piece of kit.

Lexar USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader
This thing is fast! Makes getting those images off CF or SF way faster.

    Awesome job! How far away from the wall does the desk sit with the shelf on it?

  4. aaronactive.net 31 months ago | reply

    It sits about 15CM away from the wall I think

    I did this, But the EKBY AMUND has now been discontinued from ikea - The closest thing in the same color and nice size is the EKBY JARPEN just to let people know,
    Great Hack!
