Crazy! There's some pretty nuts sites out there dedicated to people who repurpose Ikea parts for all sorts of things. You can make some really cool stuf for pretty cheap if you get creative.

Out of interest, what made you decide to change it again?

i have a large one bedroom apartment in a really good location. my son stayed with me and we shared a room for 3 years. i was not sure what his mother was going to do next because, while i had the child, she had the custody. so, in a sense, i finally i got custody by being patient - the judge didn't flinch when i got my day in court. now that i knew that my son and i were not going to be separated i wanted to move (in the area if possible) but his school is top notch and it was just going to cost me more money than i really had AND upset our balance if i tried to stay in the same area. moving to another town/school would be a downgrade in his education so i was a victim of my own prior good fortune in that regard. what i mean is, i moved in as a bachelor who wanted to have a studio in his apartment. location location location they say? i got lucky.

i asked myself why i was moving... the fundamental question... basically it amounted to wanting my kid to have his own room and me wanting us to have a washer and dryer. so... i gave him his own room. i moved my bed to the [good sized] living room where my studio was and had to consolidate and i rolled on with my current laundry plan. trying to make everything fit required some serious moving and removing but in the end it worked out really well. even have Japanese blind style hanging panels to separate it out. 8)

tldr condensed;

i originally set the shelves forward away from the walls to allow some access to wiring and breathing room for the computers and gear. that took up too much space as needs changed. i had to dismantle the framing and everything so it was just time to rethink things. also, i found a really big U-shaped desk/table being thrown out that would hold my gear perfectly. by this time i had a better idea of needs vs. wants and gear lust vs. wisdom
