I’ve just purchased a glass desk and leather chair via Gumtree for our teenage son’s bedroom. I had been thinking of getting a desk from IKEA, but this one looked even better and being secondhand was even cheaper!
It had been taken apart so that we could fit it into the car which meant I had to check the Gumtree pictures to see how to assemble it – luckily I managed to download them just before the listing disappeared. (With Gumtree, all information about a sale disappears as soon as it is marked as bought.) It was fairly simple with two people to assemble it and so my son and I managed it between us. The lovely family that sold it to us even contacted us the next day to see if we needed any further explanations of how to put it back together.
The desk looks great and our son’s very pleased with the chair too. Although we have now discovered that an optical mouse does not work on a transparent glass surface!!!
