So I wanted a stand up computer desk for a couple of reasons. Firstly that I've been spending too much time wasting away at my computer mindlessly clicking through one website after another. Secondly, I've been reading a lot lately about how sitting and sedentary lifestyles are incredibly unhealthy and I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. As a happy bonus I got a lot of my living room real estate back!

Step 1: Materials And Tools

Materials: 2 Shelf racks 4- 16" brackets 6- #12-2 screws 1- 72"x12"x1" board Total ~$70 I picked up all my stuff at Lowe's Tools: Power drill Table saw Level Pencil Safety pin
Also can be adjusted for sitting.
Where do you buy these racks and anchors? Nice idea!!! Thanks~
Thanks! I got everything I needed at Lowe's. I'm sure you can find this stuff at any home improvement store though.
very simple yet a great idea. I might have to build one
