My husband has way too many toys, the one that drives me nuts is a big massive wheel he attaches to his desk for online racing. It is huge and bulky and to see his monitors over it he had placed them all on books. His office/playroom is right inside the front door so when you walk in you see his messy desk and mass of books holding up his three monitors. The sight of them always made me cringe and feel like I had stepped back in time to my college days.
I recently rearranged and cleaned his room; when I started putting his computer back together I decided it was time to do something about it. My first trip was to Lowes where I bought the shelf, which happens to be a perfect match for the desk, for $9.00. I then headed off to Hobby Lobby to the wood craft aisle knowing that I would find something to use for a base. I bought two square shelves that are the perfect height for $12.00. I painted the wood boxes with Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint, I am going to find so many uses for that stuff. The color is pretty much perfect to go with the Espresso shelf.
Once the shelves were dry I attached them with a little liquid nail and the monitor stand was done. My husband is happy with the results and I am happy his desk is a little bit less of an eyesore.
