My student son lives in a shared flat, which means he has to keep most of his belongings in his bedroom, and work there too when the shared spaces get too busy or noisy.
So when I saw an old drop-front writing desk, it seemed a perfect solution to his need for both a workspace and storage.
In its original state, the desk was a bit dull and sad-looking, but it’s amazing what a few coats of white paint can do!
I remember from my flatting days that rented houses never have enough lights or power points, they’re always in the wrong place, and there’s generally nothing you can do about it. So with the Big T’s help, I’ve fitted power and lighting to the desk itself, with a four-outlet power board (with USB ports) and a LED light above the desk area.
Having brought the desk indoors to photograph it, I’m realising how useful I’d find something like this. And it does look good with the black & white chair.

Perfect for the boy-child’s small-space living.
Primer on the drawers, and already an improvement.
