Step 1: Imporoving Upon My Space.
Organizing and cleaning would be a good start, but alas, I decided to make a bigger mess. Behold the small cupboard and CD rack, the two biggest wastes of spaces in the previous picture. Lets remove them, shall we? For the door, I'll skip the useless steps and get straight to what worked.
The only way to remove the door, would be through the hinges. I took various objects, a dremel, a knife, and a drill to the door, looking to remove the plastic hinges it sat on. The drill worked the best. By weakening the top hinge by drilling around it, I was able to hit the weakened top, thus breaking and removing the door with no damage to the desk itself. I saved the door handle and the magnet clasp that held it shut, more on that later.
Step 2: The CD Rack
Unfortunately, there's a strip of wood in the middle of my new shelf. Using the same method as the door to weaken the wooden pegs on top would of been better than what I did, which was to break it in half by hitting it. The bottom of the shelf separated from the rest, slightly damaged now. By cutting a piece of the removed barrier, I can simply prop up the damaged corner underneath, no real harm done.
Step 3: Recycle, Recycle, Recycle
I keep losing my safety glasses between projects, and I found the perfect use for the door handle off the door I just pulled off. Taking the handle off was a breeze, just unscrew it and there you go. After scouting out a location for my "hanger" I traced out where the screws would fit into the handle, and proceeded to drill those two holes out. Drill bit size depends on the screw. Now I have a specific place to keep my glasses, which is really useful.
Step 4: Future Plans
If this needs to appear as a slide show, please let me know. I feel that this a quasi-ible at best, I' not really sure where this belongs.
