This is the Ikea desk hack that we made for Kaylas office. We put together a countertop with two desk drawers and some table legs to make sure Kayla had enough space for her work and personal desktop for editing. While this is the full vlog you can skip to the end for the final result!
Here is the parts list for building this Ikea hacked desk we built. This fit in our room but make sure you measure as this top is 98" by 25" so you need a-lot of space for this. Additionally pre-drill your holes so you do not crack any of the wood. The countertop just sits on top of the ALEX drawers and while they do come with some rubber nubs the gripping pads are better.
