Materials: IKEA Lack Side Table, 2 Spruces 2x2, 1 Spruce 1x2, Acrylic Paint

Description: For standing desks lovers, this is a practical one for laptop or other uses for less than $20.

First, price breakdown (in Canadian Dollars):

IKEA Lack Side Table ($10)
2 Spruces 2x2 ($4)
1 Spruce 1x2 ($1)
Acrylic Paint ($1)

Second, steps:

1. Cut the 2x2 spruce to the desired height (1 meter for me to rest my elbow flat on the top for comfortable and healthy use)

2. Drill holes on top of the new legs to allow the original two sided screws to screw in

3. Assemble legs on table top exactly like the original legs

4. Based on the measure between two legs, cut the 2x1 spruce

5. Drill holes for the joint screws between legs.

6. Attach the supporting 1x2 spruces and screw them in

7. Paint and wait until dry
