Before we left, we decided that we'd only take one desk - mine - because the other one (which had both DH's and DS's computer on it) was too weak to disassemble and bring here. We figured on finding a couple of desks when we got here.
Well, the bad news: my desk, the only one we had, did not survive the trip. Parts of it are broken in such a way that I can't reassemble it. Second, even if I could assemble it, there is no place downstairs where it will fit, because it's a pretty large corner unit. So now we were out three desks, though I volunteered to use my sewing table for a computer desk for a while. I did some shopping on Craigslist, and did manage to find a pretty nice desk for DH for $25. So we were shopping for another one (probably for me - I haven't decided on the layout yet). When DH left for work after lunch today, he noticed that two doors over, the neighbors appeared to be throwing away a desk. So we walked over and looked at it - it has a stain, maybe, and a few scratches, but heck, I can live with a lot for free. I figure the stain is where my mousepad will be anyhow.
So now I just gotta get the clutter rearranged so I can put the desks in, and actually set up the computers and the whole office. I'm so excited!
I just had to share my bargain.
