A sit/stand desk in a raised position. It's a cherry top with cords on it and gray legs. It's sitting on carpet that's half pulled up with a can of spray paint next to it.
The desk in the lowered position with the legs spray painted black.
It's not a "complete solution." The internal sections of the legs that move to do the actual raising and lowering are lubricated. Covering them in paint seemed a poor choice. So, they remain the same old gray.
A photo from undreneath the desk showing the legs extended. The lower portion is spray painted black with the upper extension sections remaining gray.
When the desk is raised, this can be seen from a distance, but it's not noticeable when actually at the desk. That works out just fine.
I highly recommend an automatic, adjustable, sitting/standing desk (a la Geek Desk) for anyone who spends the majority of their workday at a computer. It's a great way to help reverse the slow slide to slugdom.
Just make sure to go with the black legs to save yourself some hassle.
