When we removed the hand-me-down desk we found on a local tag sale site and stated putting this one up we were amazed with how much extra floor space she had. It changed the layout of her whole room and there really is not a hint of extra space.
Setting things up is fun for me but since it is her desk I left it up to her. She was stressed because she wanted to utilize the space as best she could while also showcasing some of her favorite items.
I love all the shelving and the magnetic wall in the back.
She now needs a better light, she is using her dad's old office lamp which is a basic desk green lamp as well as a new chair. This was handed down as well years ago. She does digital art as well as using a sketchbook and this desk is perfect for her. When she wants to use the sketchbook she can move her computer toward the back and do her thing!
