DIY Modern Monitor Stand

In order to spruce up my new office space, I wanted modern and clean monitor stands for my computer monitors. I was formerly using two dictionaries to the do the trick and it just wasn't jiving with the high-design look I was going for. 

It didn't take me long to decide I wanted to use unfinished wood.  I keep coming back to the simplicity of whites, natural woods, and black and haven't tired of it yet.

Here's how we did it (to make dual computer monitor stands): 

1 piece of 1x6x2 Oak (cut in half) : ~$6.00 
4 unfinished wood Artesian Small Bun Feet (we got ours from Lowe's) : $2.78/foot
4 3in. straight top plates: $1.78/plate

Total cost: ~$24.00 


  1. Curious why you decided to do with two separate pieces as opposed to one larger piece with 4 feet?

  2. Hi Mary- I made two separate pieces/stands since I have two computer monitors (although only one is pictured) :)

  3. I opted to use a 8" wide board due to my monitor base. I also used Poplar wood instead of Oak. I like it so much I am going to make another one so my Mac mini can fit underneath it. Saves so much space on my desk. Thank you for this amazing idea.

  4. Wow.. I believed that Monitor Wall Mount are the best office accessories... it helps to keep your desk cleans... This will also work.. Thanks
