    Im looking for a new desk/work station for my room. I dont want it to use up to much space but I want it to be able to have room for a printer monitor, have some where to put the computer and still have room to put other stuff around it. Im thinking of something you can shove in a corner because I have an idea already of where Im going to put it so that it doesnt take up to much space.

    Any suggestions?

    I like this desk but in terms of usable space and the ammount of space it takes up its really not what Im looking for.

    This pretty much does everything I want but Im not happy with how it looks. Im looking for some kind of middle ground between the two or something that can give me the size and function of the secound one but look as nice as the first one. Im almost debating making something myself.

    I built this desk/computer stand/printer stand for myself. It's all oak with a darker stain on it. Total cost was $45 :coold:

    Take note that the middle leg is no longer on the desk, so there are only 2 now. The middle one ended up being right where I liked to sit so it would be between my legs :o

    Build your own out of MDF. Really easy, don't have to be good at carpentry at all.

    Not only that, but your wallpaper is cliche, your mouse and keyboard are god awful ugly, I think that's the oldest laptop I have ever seen, and your speakers are total shit you might as well just use headphones you would get better bass response from the headphones I use than that shoebox size "subwoofer".

    Nice desk, except for the old lady antique furniture legs on it.

    Go to an antique shop and find something that'll work. Nobody else will have anything else like it.

    Stay away from glass; it gets dirty way too easily. (no, I'm not talking about spooge stains, I'm talking about skin oil.)
