What inspired you? The elegant and sexy design of the Apple Imac inspired me. Since the computer is very compact-all-in-one, I wanted to produce a minimal and clean work surface. I only had a small space to work with (4X6 feet) in the bedroom, so I decided to use the Elfa system to create shelving on top and a computer work desk on bottom.
... The Elfa system is easily adaptive and economical. I could custom size the computer shelf and elevate it to hide the keyboard underneath. The work area feels brighter and less cramped as it overlooks the entryway. As a lighting aficionado, I wanted various lighting options: overhead lighting on dimmers, desktop lighting and under the desk lighting.
Great Tip: Find out what is behind the walls before you do any drilling! I found out the wall covered up pipes, and I needed to be very careful where I drilled.
