i'm in need of some help. awhile back my husband was able to get me a rather large L-shaped desk for next to nothing. think cubicle desk without the walls. (sort of like the photo above) mine won't have file cabinets, but it does have some built-in shelving underneath. it's all horrible grey laminate type finish. the sides and base are a grey metal that i think would be fine if i did something cool with the top. i'm a little stuck for ideas......i do have one in the back of my head, but before i did it, i thought i'd ask for a little help here. i'm hoping all you creative folks can share some brilliant ideas of what i can do with the top to finish it. my only requirement is that it not involve paint. the finish is such that paint will most likely not adhere well, and to be honest, i want something more unusual than paint anyway.
so, if you have any brilliant ideas, post a comment with them. don't worry about how labor intensive the idea may be. i'm up for a challenge! if i select your idea as my final solution, i'll provide you with a coupon code for $50 of free product on either of my sites: shades of violet or fin+roe! if i end up using my original idea, i'll pick my favorite suggestion out of the bunch and send a coupon code for $25 just for the heck of it! put on your thinking caps and start commenting away.....you have until 10:00 sunday the 7th to leave your mark!
