    I did see a really nice white and silver one but it was £100 so I thought for £30 its a good start.

    plus i can put my crayons in it as well . lol (not really)

    The Ikea tables are amazing, I've had one for 2 years now, and it is awesome.

    The table is big enough that you can have 2 computers and still have space to draw comfortably. The lightbox space is almost a2.

    it fits neatly under my stairs!

    when we moved in, we decided to move the TV, the sofa...just to fit it all in! There is always a bit of DIY. A friend of mine made his out of an old box he bought at a boot sale, asked around and got some glass for free and then covered the inside in grease proof paper!

    I don't know if you have this in the UK, but you could buy a Xoomy
    It's actually drawing toy/tool for children but it basically is a lightbox that fits on your desk ;)

    then quit your moaning!

    there is always one alternative, chuck the pram in the bin, and get a bigger desk! :D
