I now have a total of one month until a huge set of exams to finish off the law course I've been doing since last September. I need to sit down and do some serious revision, but my desk at home just wasn't doing the business. In a rented home there isn't much opportunity for furniture improvement, so a little spruce up of one corner of the house was a nice afternoon project.
This is my old set-up. A desk my chair didn't fit under, plus no space for spreading out with notes etc.
I decided on this Expedit desk from Ikea, because in my mind the colour palette of my future house is very much white-based!
I did a lot of the work (flat pack is so satisfying, I love it) but Will helped me to put this together. Also observe how my new minimalistic desk goes well with our slightly less stylish carpet.
The new set-up, sitting in a corner of bookshelves (there are three...) Will looks surprised because he was in the middle of falling over here.
Colour-coded folders are the only way to feel organised.
And naturally it wouldn't be a new desk without a little set of drawers and some fancy cardboard boxes (even they come flat-packed).
Do you ever get the desire to redecorate, even if only in your own small way?
