At the risk of boring you, I have one more post about the new desk.
After years of an open table top with no storage, it is a novelty to have 2 large drawers on the right-hand side of the desk as well as the storage above. The top drawer has some paper that I salvaged from the IKEA packaging which our grand-daughters will be able to use for drawing as well as last year’s Christmas cards that I need to sort and file. The lower drawer is designed to hold suspension files and there is nothing in there at the moment.
This is a close-up of the left-hand side of the shelving above the desk. From the top – monitor for solar panels, modem, phone and stationery items (pens,paper clips and bulldog clips). There are 2 speakers on the centre shelf but the remainder are empty. How long will that remain the case?
I have a couple of lists and a notepad in the small drawer on the left. I really like the idea of being able to put them in the drawer so that they are not lying around on the desk.
My plan is to keep the desk looking pretty much as it is and I see no reason for that not to be the case. It is a great opportunity to start with minimal stuff and keep it that way.
