janet is doctor. she's also pretty handy. with the help of her boyfriend, they custom-made this front desk workspace from ikea pieces.
she writes, "i needed a large front desk for my office staff and had neither the time nor the patience to have one built by a carpenter.
i used one expedit bookcase, two small effektiv file cabinets, two reclaimed effektiv tabletops (dressing for the base), as well as two cast-off maple drafting tabletops i found on craigslist. additional effektiv file cabs are seen in the photos as well as a large pax wardrobe that houses my server and supplies.
although it is not well visualized in the photos, i underlit the hanging edge with rope lighting. much of my office is ikea and ikea hacked, from therapy bay to the exam rooms."
