I have been following this thread for some time and I finally got around to redoing my home office. I posted more pics in the 2010 Workstation thread but I wanted to put one pic of my IKEA desk here.

You can check several more shots of the office in the workstation post here
The desk legs are Vika Annefors with a 78" Vika Amon tabletop.

Out of curiosity TooBooKoo, where'd you get the short shelves the statues on the wall are on? Have a spot where something that size would be fantastic.

Offices clear out constantly here in NYC, whether moving or going out of business. You can get cheap Ikea desks all the time. It's really better off that way as it's really hard to traverse NYC and load huge pieces of furniture without getting a parking ticket, gotta give the buyers an incentive.

I wish I had an Ikea store near me. Nearest one is like at least 2 hours away if not more.

Looking to be a first time Fredrik owner. The size and specs fit my needs pretty well. I like my current desk but its overly shaky during use (monitors and items wobble while typing) and I've noticed bowing and bending of the center and side shelves.

My question is if anyone knows where I could get extra shelves?

Looks like you've got a leg in the middle of the corner. You can eliminate that with a simpson bracket/tie/brace from your local hardware store. ;)

Yes, there's a leg there and it does get in my way occasionally. I need to make some time to get to the hardware store to see what I can find.
Having a large area free and clear for my legs would be a great improvement.

Sweet setup but who lives beyond that door? Bad Ronald???

Improved a bit. The setup uses two Ikea Jerker desks - combined. I just swing between them depending on what I'm working on. The setup was gradually built up over a year and a half. I spend time editing my pics[D40/18-55/50/55-200] / playing TF2 or working on an embedded project.[Notes]

I really want those blinds. Are those Ikea blinds or another brand? If another brand, which brand and model are they and where did you get them?

Thanks.

Sorry about the delayed response, haven't checked this thread in a few days.
I got the Bonsai at WalMart, it's not real... just some type of soft plastic. It really does look real though, which is what attracted me to it when I looked at it in the store.
It stands about 17 inches tall and the pot it's in is about 8 inches on all four sides. I just fell in love with it, and it really makes me feel peaceful when I look at it. Hope this information helps.

thanks, this helps a lot - i bought a small silk bonsai tree (8") online (it's in one of my photos in this thread a few days ago), it looks realistic, i love it, brings a peaceful feel to the room, but i want a bigger one. plus i'd imagine that walmart's wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg. so i'll be on the lookout :D

You're welcome. I only paid $20 or so for it.

I seen your work area, very nice! I love the little Bonsai too.

Alot of people asking about the door. :)
I live in a house divided into four blocks..one block for each tenant. To do this, the landlord had to seal one of the doors. It was originally a living room, now converted into a bedroom.

Hmmmm Vika Amon or Galant?

Vika Amon = Cheaper
Galant = Customizable

Decisions decisions :(
