This is a picture of my new desk. It's actually a used Ikea Micke desk I picked up on Facebook Marketplace. It is replacing the larger, bulkier rolltop secretary desk we bought ages ago. We sold that on Marketplace as well.
Ironically, this is the second Ikea Micke desk that was available. I was going to purchase one from someone but had to hold off because the attempt to give away my rolltop desk fell through. That's right, I was going to give the desk to someone for free but she couldn't take it for, reasons. Thus I was able to sell it for $50 (I paid $80 four years ago).
With a laptop and decent WiFi, I can work in almost any room I wish around the house. And when the weather gets decent again I do plan to sit on the porch or back deck for parts of my workday, or even the garage.
But there are times when you just need a traditional desk, especially if you want to hook up a monitor for an extra screen.
Do me a favor?
