DIY Why? – The Upcycled Desk 4 of 8

By 16 Jul ’12No Comments

So last month we moved into our new flat and we are getting a really great deal but we agreed that we would do all the improvements to the place. So here is a wee series on our home DIY and so this is why:

Another item we inherited was this spectacularly large office desk!

The last guy who rented the room upstairs – I say rented when actually he only paid for 2 out of the 7 months he lived here and when he snuck out he left our good friend Jo without his contribution to the utility bills! – What a lovely charming chap!!!  – Anyway we tried to sell this monstrosity on eBay but it never even got a viewing so I decided to use it for myself. It had a date with my brother-in-law’s circular saw and then became a much smaller but more suitable desk for my office although I had to work on its orientation as the first office layout didn’t suit the sloping floor which gave me a dodgy back as i was sitting on a slope and bending my back to the right:

Now it’s great!
