I’ve been trying out carpets in the Doghouse…
My girlfriend owns a wide range of rugs from her travels and has kindly donated some of the more hardwearing ones to my general comfort. I’ll spare you the photos of every rug in every position. Instead – it’s worth pointing out that the desk is still standing on trestles that I salvaged from the recycling centre some months ago.
They’ve been mostly out of the way, but I had some spare fence posts from another project and I thought I’d see if there was much use in them.
This turned out to only be half an hour’s work – particularly when I also realised I could use some of the spare cladding I also had, to make low-visabilitiy supports for the legs (which are themselves screwed in).
This is the direct result.
I’m actually astonished at how much difference it makes. The whole side of the desk was suddenly much more free – particularly because the trestles had encouraged me to store stuff on them, under them and near them. I’ve got a lot more space to play with (full view below).
