Building a desk.

Working on getting my room ready still. I’ve had two different desks set up since we lived in our apartment. One for my computer and one for my sewing machine. It’s looking kind of messy with two different ones now, so I’ve been working on a new desk.

I’ve bought a long white board from a building store, it’s about 2450x600mm. I found legs at Ikea and a white cupboard to hide my computer in. I’ve done an ‘ikea hack’ to the legs.

I marked up 22cm from the bottom and taped them.

They are curvy and called Nipen.

I bought pink paint, the same colour as my wall paper base. It has a little bit of a purple tone to it. I’m not very much into pink, but from the wall paper colours pink was the best way to go.┬á I didn’t want a dark colour (dark purple or black), and orange wasn’t an option. Matt keeps saying my room is looking like a Power Puff room.. he must have watched that show a lot.

And this is after the second paint layer. Looking pretty neat. Can’t wait to get this done!

My parents are coming up here next weekend to help me set it up. Matt is going to Italy for a week of skiing so I’ll have some company.

I really love my current desk, it’s from Ikea called Johan. They don’t make it any more, and I wish I could store it somewhere for the future but there is just no room. I tried talking Matt into taking it apart and putting it in the closet.. but he didn’t go for it. I’ll probably sell it, reluctantly.
