  1. Hey Andy,

    Absolutely terrific idea to use expedits as legs!
    Is the height okay for sitting comfortably?
    Your floor rocks,too!

    I am also an IT-Sec student from germany, btw!
    From Bo**** ;)


  2. Hight works out perfect for me (i’m 1,86). The floor is new and I’m so glad went for the dark wood (Nußbaum dunkel), it really makes the whole place more cozy.

    Grüße aus PA :)

  3. I really love your set up. It gives me idea on how I’m going to plan mine at my new house that I’m going to move next year. I also want it to face window just like yours…but in my case, I have more windows…

    Is the IKEA table 5 or 6 feet?

  4. the tabletop itself is a bit over 60 inches (5 ft.), in combination with the two expedit “legs” the whole desk is 90.6 inches (7.5 ft.) wide.

  5. Love your acer screen! can you teach me how to plug it in to use a dual monitor with your macbook air?


  6. I’m looking to re-create your exact same setup, can you tell me how everything is connected? Thanks!

  7. Love the desk combination with IKEA expedit’s … Great use of space :) Something I could very much use. Nice clean and simple.
