Common setup seems to be two Alex drawers from IKEA with a real wood worktop of your choice, looks pretty nice for the price

Yeah I looked into this as well, but those Alex drawers seem to be available only in white or beige, which I'm not super in to …

Looking for something with some storage drawers and relatively long, about 2m.

Or is it a custom build job?


Eiermann E2.
If you reconsider those drawers.

I got one myself. Spectacularly impractical but looks great.

I’m not saying it’s horrible. Just pointing out the fact.

Maybe treat it like you would a car paint job?
Find the closest match and touch up. Any mess or too much, remove with thinners. Please test on hidden part before using thinners as it might fuck up the original ‘vaneer’.

Don’t use brush that comes with touch up. Use a toothpick for precise work. You’d need a magnifying glass to see the chips on my bonnet

you can buy replacement tops for them from vitsoe is its bad they are about 50 quid if i remember right , as i replaced a top on a cabinet i brought second hand that had a scratch

if you want pair touch up you can find the RAL codes on vitsoe site and will likely be able to get a touch up pen to match the RAL as its a very standard thing

Thanks Seenmy. I’ve found the RAL colour, it’s a small chip but bang in the middle and I can’t stop looking at it. I’ll get a new top if the touch up fails

one more item, which I'll sell in due course. Hubsch round oak dining table, 110 cm x 75 cm. One of the legs has been cut down by the best part of an inch due to uneven floor where I used to live:

Any recommendations for an "elegant" compact standing desk setup without having to use an ironing board. The Ikea ones seem quite big and more for an office environment than home.
