    A link for this please? It looks awesome, although it could use a different color, orange or chrome would do wonders. Still, I would buy it if I had the room and money for it.
    Congrats. :)

    There are only two colours of this desk.

    Black £175
    Brown £115 (But I dislike the colour)

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb...ords=Piranha+PC21g+Large+CORNER+COMPUTER+DESK+

    But there are a few alternatives.

    Looks great(I'd even pick the brown one), although in general I'm an advocate of actually sitting right at the inner corner of a corner desk. I find it to be great for ergonomics to automatically get closer to the desk, and you can sometimes lean an arm on the side or easily get a great typing position with soft arm rest cusions. But the chair is the most important piece anyway. :)

    The frame shouldn't be a problem, it's the panels that you might have issues with as the specs list them as being laminated MDF. I'd suggest using a shellac based primer vs acrylic base as that stuff sticks to just about anything, and most likely you'll have to sand it afterwards. After that you can pretty much us any paint you want.

    @Mig. Beautiful desk there, man. I'm envious.

    MDF is easy, just sandpaper it and prime it, then it'll take whatever you like :)
