Super sized desk...

Hi Everyone!  Happy Friday!  I wanted to share with you the desk that I made for my parent's office.  Sorry I don't have any before pictures of their office because they had it all cleaned out and ready for their new desk when I got there to install it.  My parents had two desks in this office.  One for the computer that was a really nice desk but didn't have functional storage or writing space.  The other was one of those pressed wood put together kinds that had some writing surface and cubbies up above without doors, which meant everything was out in the open!  So, I changed all that.  I made them a desk with lots of counter/writing space and storage space.  Plus it sits nicely in the corner and wraps around.




Behind the two doors are these pull out drawers that can each hold up to 100 pounds of stuff.  The drawers have different size depths to them so that they can old different size items.  It's a super-sized desk but gives them more space than they thought they'd ever need.  And let's face it, you can never have to much counter space or storage.  I (and my mom) would have preferred to paint it, but I knew Dad would rather have it stained and it could always be painted later.  The desk comes in three sections for ease of moving, but we still had to take the door off it's hinges to get the desk in.  Like I said, it's a super-sized desk.  I hope they get a lot of use out of it.  Well, thanks for stopping by.
