looking for new computer desk. Need suggestions!

hello all. I am redoing my room and getting rid of the huge desk taking up space. Looking for a smaller computer desk with some glass top and perhaps some drawers. I've been to staples and ikea but they are overpriced and very limited on the selections. Anyone know where else I can go around lower mainland? budget is around 100-250$ Thanks!

Found some at office depot you can look which has nice ones. A few of them has small glass piece where you can place some papers underneath and a stand for monitor. I just need a decent looking one for my work room. Too many cabinets

i looked forever on CL, big box stores, etc. until somone here recomended me

Source Office Furniture Canada

they have a large show room near king ed and boundary, amazing selection, and actually very reasonable prices. They also have a large clearance section where some desks that were going for like $175-$300 would probably be 800+ at a staples etc.

bought mine a large L type desk with cappucino veneer, it's very solid and worked perfect for what i needed it for.

The one downside is there is a really big white sales guy there who is a complete fucking clown and gave me attitude both times i was in there, they arent on commision so they dont give a shit really whether you buy or not, but i'd still recomend them

I copied this setup a couple years ago and it worked out well. Less than $150 iirc.

Sweet! All glass just like OP wanted! SOLD!

That being said, Ikea sold Glass Tables and Glass Desks. The glass desks were more money because they were for a specialized purpose. I don't really know of any differences between them though. So you can find a nice frosted Glass Table on craigslist from Ikea for less than $100.

IKEA Glass Table

This one is great, comes with height adjustable legs. They're pretty universal when it comes to desks so down the road you can change it out to a wood desk or expand it if you wanted to using the same frame.

damn awesome replies guys. I think I can just saw part of my desk and shorten the length and add an upper shelf like those ones, unless I can find a nice white one like the above posts. Doesn't matter anymore if its glass or not haha. I was thinking glass would be more useful since I can have my paper work underneath and view them and not have my keyboard and work space area cluttered. DIY FTW, cheap parts!

i wanted a big simple desk with drawer and couldn't find anything I like so I ended up building my own (92" x 28", basically fill the entire width of my den)

the design was very simple(1 top, 2 side, 2 drawers), but it was much harder than I thought.....
i built it with solid oak, and the whole thing weight over 140lbs...
