So I finally got a new desk for my computer, I am pretty picky but turns out the “Galant” desk series from IKEA was exactly what is was looking for and I got this really coo “Birch veneer” color which is easy on the eyes and not your typical black and boring desk.

I got the standard IKEA “galant” desk with 2 T-Legs which I think is more efficient than having 4 legs , with the computer stand under the desk a small cabinet and 2 wall shelf of the same color as the desk, I used one shelf in the wall and the other on top of the desk to raise the monitor using 4 4-inch Capita legs all from IKEA. Also picked up an accent light which has 2 small LED lamps and put them on top of shelf in the wall, the regular light next to the printer is also from IKEA !!.

Even the mouse pad is also from IKEA.

The speakers kindda match the light wood color and grey tones i got going on with the desk as well, you can see I also picked up some items from the bath section to hang up the earphones.

Need to put this 2 pictures frames up in the wall.

I really like how this IKEA “Galant” desk is very space efficient at the same time is big enough that i feels huge, I really like how open and minimal it is, very practical use of space.

I also got cable management from IKEA, which keeps all the cables neat and tight.

I used screws to mount 2 power strips under the desk, also picked up thing to put wine glass from the kitchen section at IKEA but used it under the desk to put a little server/nettop, which worked very well, fits perfect.

The IKEA wine glass rack works like a charm and it was very cheap, i might get another one !!

All I need to do now is get a bigger monitor, hang up some art work and get proper light in the room.

I really like the desk. The monitor stand looks like the 46" x 11" ekby jarpen with 4" capita legs. Is that right?

That's very nice. I find it comfortable to be able to work in that computer desk. I should probably let them setup my home office as well.
