I already had the desk and L shaped space. The "L" is easier now to keep clear with the additional new workspace. Above are plastic drawers with all of my 8-1/2' by 11" card stock. I like to have all the colors on hand so I am not limited. My laptop sits on my desk and along with my all purpose printer. My super duper professional printer is next to to the "L". It is so big that I could not use it. Now it is in a great location.
