So here is mine, thanks again for stopping by, and if you are around later, I may have another project on here.

This is when you first walk in my room. As you can tell I have wall to wall desks. They are a few put together and I also work from home, so yes there is two computer and two printers.

This is looking at the door we just walked thru.

So this is on the wall that would behind me when I sit at the computer.
