Baecitylights Desk Upgrade
Desk – IKEA Hardwood Counter
Starting us off, I have got Baecitylights upgrade to show you, and what an upgrade it is. Though to be fair, I dont know what it was upgraded from, judging by the quality of this rig, hunches say the previous battlestation probably was not that bad! This is Baecitylights rig, and what a beauty to start us off with.
This rig is a home office, where Baecitylights does IT support work, and the rig is also for his personal use, which sounds ideal, you would never have to leave your battlestation at the end of the day.
Starting out with the desk, it consists off the ever loved IKEA Alex drawers (is there anything that they are not good for) and then a solid oak stained counter top, with some adjustable kitchen legs; as a result of these, the desk sits at a custom height completely tuned for the user.
My favorite piece is the desk. I had never sanded and stained furniture before this and I like the way it turned out.
Well, Baecitylights , I can confirm it looks great, the dark colours really set off your white gear.
The IKEA Alex drawers are a very popular option out there, being affordable and, well its IKEA so they fly up when your ready to build, there is plenty of custom ideas for IKEA stuff, including the Alex drawers on IKEA Hackers; because of this, there is no limit to what you can do with your IKEA hardware. These also available on Amazon.
