So, I bought a desk from Bush Furniture. It was 250$, and I love it however when it came in the mail, it had a small ding on the top and I thought I couldn’t live with it that way. Needless to say after calling Bush, they sent a replacement top at no charge. 72”x30”x1”. I currently have it listed on craigslist, but I doubt anyone will buy it since it isn’t a complete desk. It could easily have Ikea legs attached to it but I’m certain most people aren’t that bright.
What I’m asking is doyou guys have any ideas as to what I could use it for? It has 2 holes precut for grommets.
I was thinking of making a backsplash for behind my desk that I would mount the monitor to. I could use it to hide wires. ya know… However, its HEAVY particle board. I’d estimate 90-100lbs. How on earth would i hang it? I was thinking a french cleat, but then I though… This top isn’t crap. Its made to be stain/scratch resistant and gluing a cleat with nails will more than likely NOT hold. I believe glue would not stick to this at all…
So, do you guys have any ideas on what I could do with it?
