I spend most of my day at my computer desk. I go to school online, keep up my blogs and have a few chat forums that I keep up on. My old desk was way too small and had an ackward side table next to it for added room.
Chris & I finally decided it was time for me to get a new desk and I found one I loved on the Office Max website. After driving to three different stores a week ago, we found out that it was only available online. I wasn't sure what to do, I wanted to be able to check out the desk first, but Chris said "go for it".
The UPS man dropped it off in 2 huge boxes yesterday & I tried to assemble all 297,396 pieces. (Slight exaggeration, but not much) Even though I'm good at this type of thing, this desk had me beat. I was convinced that it was delivered straight from hell! I managed to assemble one drawer (this desk has drawers!) before I threw in the towel and said bad words.
After working all day, Chris came home and spent the next four hours making sure my desk was perfect. Putting together the other drawer.
Hey, it's starting to look like a desk!
Now he's getting overwhelmed, but he never complained!
Chris, showing how hard the glass top was to put on. (A glass top, what was I thinking?)
Outside cutting the board that the chair sits on so the desk would fit. My chair rolls and since we have carpet we have to have a board, those mats don't work.
New & old side by side.
Cutting for about the fourth time to get it just perfect.
Finally relaxing around 11:30.
MY NEW DESK!
It's so nice, I don't feel like I deserve it. Do you ever feel that way?
Now I get to organize everything the way I want it, with drawers & tons more space! Now I need to get new hanging file folders, a desk set to keep my things on top in & I'm pretty sure this calls for new pens. My name is Pam & I'm an office supply junky!
