Home Office Underbelly

Materials: Galant Desk, Ikea File Cabinet, Rubbermaid

Description: Basically, install Rubbermaid home items at time of desk setup, trial and error follows to put everything on the underbelly or lifted from the floor that does not need to be on the desktop. Make it functional.

I was motivated by sites like these but I could not find enough ideas. I thought my finished product mighht assist others’ efforts.

    LOL..actually, it turned out pretty well. The underbelly photos were taken in what turned out to be the middle of the process. Excess/unused basket is shown and so are certain wires that were later cleaned up. Also, the shot is from the position of under the desk where you’re going to see some of the sausage making. So, I agree, the shots selected aren’t a good representation. That said, look at the final product. I’ll probably update my blog photos to show how it really now looks but Pandora has already been let out..

    Not very pretty but it does look functional! What did the desk look like beforehand? How much of an improvement is there on the desktop?
