1. The parts. You’ll need:
- side table – $9.99
- shelf – $15.00
- bracket x2 – $2.00
2. Do it.
Build and place the Lack side table on top of your existing desk. You may want to screw it into place so it’s secure. Place your monitor on top of the side table, and adjust the height using a book so that it’s perfect.
Next, attach the keyboard tray. Measure and mark where it will rest on the legs of the Lack side table, then install the brackets in the perfect location. You could use a stack of paper to get the brackets to sit in the right position before attaching them. Consider using twist ties to hold the brackets in place while you adjust the height. Then place the shelf on the brackets.
