Description: After the birth of our daughter, our extra bedroom became a baby room. This meant that our computer had to move out into the living room of our small two bedroom apartment. With not much space in our apartment, we went to IKEA to see if we could find a small desk that could fit in the corner of our living area. We found the LINNARP desk to be the perfect size for the space, but we had to deal with a narrower table surface depth. Furthermore, the desk was just a tad too tall to type comfortably for long periods of time.

To remedy this situation, I got the idea from other projects here on to create a keyboard tray out of the drawers portion of the desk that would not only increase the working surface of the desk, but also allow everything to be hidden out of sight when guests came over. After all, our computer was going to be in the middle of our living room.
