$22 Standing Desk

2pm rolls around and you’re already tired of sitting all day. So you slouch over your computer for the rest of the day. By the evening you’re exhausted, your back and wrists are sore, and you’re dreading doing it again tomorrow. Sound familiar?

We got tired of sitting so we built $22 standing desks, constructed from IKEA parts and wood screws.

We’re super pleased with them – they’re sturdy and ergonomic. The first week or two of usage was difficult, though. Standing all day definitely takes some getting used to. However, now that we’re adapted, we’re more energetic, more comfortable, and generally happier.
