Ash/ scrap space question.

I loved your scrap space so much that I went online to order it. I wanted to know what shipping was first so I called and they told me $349.99:eek: The whole set up is only 180.00? Just wanted to see if this sounded right to you? I would never pay that for shipping. Not sure if she was way off or if I should call back???

do you have an ikea store somewhere close? that would be way cheaper than shipping.

Yep, it was $180. $191.00 after tax. I've had my eye on this forever, and the nearest Ikea is 1.5 hours away and we don't go that way much. My dh just so happened to be 3 miles away from it so he picked it up for me the other day. I also checked what it would be to order online and shipping was ridiculous. It is REALLY heavy. One of the boxes weighed 147 lbs if I remember right!!

I am in love, love, LOVE with it. The best thing about it is everything is within arm reach. I hate having to get up and go across the room every time you need a sticker. I know, that's so much work, LOL! Biggrin I also really like that there's plenty of space on the desk to leave my Cricut set up.

Yeah, that's the thing with Ikea, if you dont' live near one, you are kinda screwed unless you want to pay bunches of money for shipping. I have friends that make a trip there yearly with a flatbed..to bring things back for others. LOL I have never bought anything from there, but wanted to buy some extendable beds for the kids. But she shipping was way more than the beds. LOL

What a cool site! Thanks Gwen for posting this. If the desk were larger I would be sending dh to menards today Smile I am such a messy scrapbooker so I need a larger space. I am however going to see what else he can make me from that site so thanks!
I did show dh the pic of ash's desk and asked him to drive to IL to get it for my bday. MIL was here and she said she would drive with him. (Anything to get alone time with Raymond) I mean Justin:D But that's fine as long as I can get it and not have to drive LOL! Dh would not tell me yes or no but I think he will do it. Crossing my fingers

Awesome! Make sure you check the in-stock status so they don't get there and find it's sold out!

Tia, would your neck do better with a high, angled table...like a architect's drafting table or something? ?? Just putting on my PT thinking cap for a solution that would put less strain on your neck. :bigarmhug:

I did not know you were a PT. Oh man do I need your help. Anytime I scrub floors, use the hose vac, play sports, go bowling, paint, scrapbook, ect... The next 2 days I am junk! The day of I can physically do the things and then for the next 2 days I am throwing up for 48 hours (sorry if thats tmi) with pain so bad behind my eye and up my neck. This is all from the car accident I was in with Damien. I am just now going to a new Dr. cause I have had more injections than I can count.
I would do anything to make this go away because there are so many things I can't do or else I pay for it. (Well, the cleaning part I don't mind Smile ) Any advice?
I did think of a higher table but then all my stuff would fall off and I am someone who puts everything out when I scrap. I used to scrap for hours but now after an hour I have to stop Sad
