Lynda's Work Area

While moving towards Lynda's work area with the flooring, I decided to pull out the false window + crayon scenery that had been put in by the PO*. I managed to get Lynda another 16" of space. Come summer I will recover yet another 17" of dead space after I get a technician to reroute the AC condenser lines and I reroute the dryer vent.



For Lynda's new desk we will repurpose a stock 8' Kitchen countertop in matt white from the 'Depot' supported by the walls at either end and by a single leg in the centre. The top section will be shelves that I have lying around the place. I plan to install fluorescent lighting at the rear of the bottom shelves to wash the work area with light. I would love to go with LED's for the entire project, but I fear that the light will be insufficient.



The work hit a sort of a stop this weekend as I had to get down to IKEA to get myself an additional 3 boxes of Laminate flooring. Full speed ahead on Monday.



Below is a before picture followed by a current picture of the area in question.




I am going to town on this space to give Lynda every possible convenience that a Crafter could possible dream of!!!!! Dad's Typeface drawers never did have a better raison d'etre as much as they do now......

His 68th birthday is March 20th... we could ask him if he'd like to go out for a hoot, or dancing! Lord knows Mum'd be game. (sigh, shaking head)

Your mom would probably go too, just to watch your dad's reactions to everything! Hahaha. Oh I love it. I know it'll never happen, but if it ever did, I want it all on video, please!


Btw, Dhiraj, you've really done a remarkable job on the basement. To think that just a mere 4-5 months ago it looked completely different. I'm sure you don't miss that carpet or the old bar. Great work!

Lynda, you've got yourself a keeper...but that you already knew, of course ;).
