South Park

One more thing down.

I don't know how I did it, but I actually managed to move the massive solid oak roll top desk out of my old bedroom and into the master bedroom. And my calculations were perfect; the desk fits exactly in the spot I allocated for it with less than 2 inches to spare.

I hope I never have to move this thing alone ever again. I ended up snapping off the piece that unlocks the drawers (I should have closed the tambour, which retracts the plunger and locks the drawers). Fortunately it wasn't really broken; I was able to unscrew a panel on the underside of the desk and reattach the plunger piece.

Only thing left now is to hang all the artwork and stuff in the master bedroom, and the room will truly be mine.
