Last year we renovated our home office. This had been a very dark/mission brown environment. A recent trip to Latvia and Denmark inspired us to rebuild it as a white/light timber finish.
The challenge we had was in find a desk to fit the space we’d designed. With Pinterest as a “I’m-not-sure-what-I-want-but-I’ll-know-when-I-see-it” inspiration, we found a long, trestle-supported table that looked perfect. The challenge was that no local retailers had such a piece.
Having trawled IKEA several times, I figured that the path to take was to make one from ‘hacked’ pieces. We documented the result through the popular Ikea-Hackers website.
