Be aware that raising your speakers off the desk surface will probably be an improvement in some areas, but will not eliminate reflections off of the desk surface.
Place a mirror on the surface of the desk in front of your speakers and sit in your normal mixing position. If you can see the speakers in the mirror, then that is a direct reflection at that point. And notice that you have two direct reflection points, one for the tweeter and on for the mid/woofer. Talk about comb filtering!
Placing blocks of fiberglass at these points can clear up your imaging drastically! But the best thing to do is to try to get your monitors away from the desk without anything sitting between them and your ears.
I built a 19" wide desk for myself that just holds the gear I always need. Works like a charm, and my speakers have never sounded better.
