You call it a picture ledge, we call it a tablet ledge. Ikea's $9.99 solution makes it easy to blend your tablet with the rest of your home decor. After a quick installation, you've got a permanent place for your tablet (and a few family photos).

Ikea's ledge is longer than necessary at 21.75 inches, but if you're savvy enough, you could slice that fiberboard in half for the perfect size.

Unexpected hack: Plate hanger ($3)

It's cheap, it's a little ridiculous, but you know what? It works.

Indy blog Tumbleweed Labs figured out that if a plate hanger can secure an expensive piece of porcelain, it's probably fit for a tablet, too.

If you're looking for the fastest and cheapest solution, head to the hardware store and pick up one of these kits for a few bucks. Just be sure to choose one with plastic tubes over the wires so it doesn't scratch your tablet.
