Here's a little photo recap of the entire process.
These are the desks we each had from before the move
Taping the walls and preping for fresh paint
Mixing the paint with water...
Until it was smooth!
First I painted...
Then my someone took over
After the walls were painted it took us a couple more months before we finally found the time to continue on with the remodel. My vision was for floating tables and shelves. I didn't want any legs, and that was the tricky part, since the table tops were quite large, how do we get them to float without bending down or getting a center bend (we call that a "belly"). Lucky for us my someone's dad is a constructor and he knew exactly what to do. Watch and learn my dear friends :)
So this is how our home office looked just a few days ago
My someone's dad measuring and marking
Cutting up metal bars to create the frame that will support the table tops
Father & son placing the frame in the right spot
Once it's all leveled then they screw it all in
Cutting a wooden bar for front support
My someone checking to see how stable the frame is...
And then his dad checked the stability with the table top on
Measuring for the second table
I wanted the second table to be a step down from the other one
Sewing another wood beam for support
Screwing everything together
...and then screwing the table tops to the frames
Putting up a shelf in the same technique as the table tops
Creating a hole for the wires. We have them all tacked underneath the table
And the final result:
At night time
And at day time
