Now, if you're missing your standing desk, chances are you've tried some of the riskier hacks we've seen on Instagram, which include, but are not limited to: a pile of books, UPS boxes, coffee cans, even four precariously placed wine glasses. Here's our advice: Don't do any of that. If you have an IKEA Lack table hanging around, now is the time to repurpose it into a standing desk — by placing it atop a desk or surface — just as this clever Twitter user did:

If the Lack table is too high and you happen to have a saw, you can easily shave a few inches off the legs. It's one of the easiest hacks and one that won't cost you much if you don't already have a Lack table — you can order one off the IKEA website for only $9.99.
