Wall to Wall Desk Project - Almost done!

The Problem:
We have too much stuff and too little room. We've always had two desks in our office, one for me and one for Jory. Our desks are too tall and really don't function well. I've always wanted a desk like those I've had at work; it's Perfect height and depth, so what is the obvious solution to this? Build a desk to those specifications.
The Plan:
Build a desk that goes from wall to wall in the office. Technically it will be two separate desks, but it will look like 1 long desk. The room is 12 feet long, giving me two 6 foot long desks!

Picked out the wood (highest grade MDF). $29.72 per sheet (48" X 96")

They DO cut the wood for you!

I had her cut two: 6' long X 30' deep

Pieces all cut...I have tons of left over wood, so I'll probably make some shelves or shadow boxes, I'm excited already!

Thank gawd it all fit in my car! I measured a million times before and knew it was going to be tricky. However, I didn't think about how heavy it was going to be and I had to put it in the car by myself. But I did it!

Two coats of semi gloss Black paint later. I thought I was going to need a 3rd coat last night, but this morning when I checked, they looked really good. Those legs....are from IKEA, I got them on sale for $10 each! They're not connected to the table tops yet, just figured they made good painting stands as well!

Tonight I'll be clearing out the office and installing the desks. After photos coming soon!
