one: ignore the mess. i gave up earlier today.
two: here's how to make a big ass desk for cheap
i went to lowes and bought two pieces of stain ready pine. one is 2' by 6' and the other is 2' by 4'. i sanded them b/c brian made me, but you don't have to unless your husband is a carpenter nazi.
i stained them with one small can of walnut stain and put two coats of polyeurothane over that.
then i used small metal plate bracers (which look like a small sheet of metal pegboard) and screws to join the two pieces together to make the L-shape

you'll just need two, or three if you go with an L, pieces of the same height to sit the desk top on.
if you build it, prowler will sit on it and about it.
