Moved those two old desks out this weekend. That was quite the chore. Just moving all of the junk piled on top of them took me hours. The old office looked pretty empty.
Hauled the new one in and decided to slant it out into the room to give myself a bit more space back there. I'm going to do something with all that blank space on the back of it. My mind reels with possibilities.
Of course the first thing I had to do was move my dragons and skulls back out where they could be seen again. Unfortunately the thing is so tall I had to remove the blades from my ceiling fan. Ah well. I rarely use that anyway....
Moved my 'puter in and got it all set back up. I was really unhappy with that huge mass of wires back there.
So I moved the tower down to the lower shelf and built the box you see back there. It has slots lined with felt for the wires to run through. It's stuck down with little Velcro pads to keep it from moving. And the stain I chose came real close to matching!
My old desk had nails and thumb tacks and things that I hung my stuff on and I didn't want to do that again. So I procured these little gears from the wife. She cuts them out with the laser to do her scrapbooking stuff. They are actually made from thin cardboard. I cut out a bit of scrap wood and stained it then glued on the gears and gave it a quick coat of polyurethane, then drilled holes and screwed in some cup hooks.
This thing just keeps getting cooler and cooler all the time.
I wonder how many of those gears it would take to cover the rest of it? (grin)
Tuesday (my Friday) is going to be National Chocolate Chip Day, International Family Day, Nylon Stockings Day, Straw Hat Day and Peace Officer Memorial Day.
Have a chocolate chip on me. And remember our fallen officers.
