Q: I just received delivery of a vintage desk I found on eBay. I'd planned on using the desk as a tv stand, but am now wondering if, at 29 inches, its just too high. I was hoping Apartment Therapy readers could help me with this dilemma. If all else fails, i'll just use it as a desk.

- Should i use it as a tv stand as is? Is the height not a real problem?
- If i do, i'd have to remove at least the bottom wall shelf (as the tv would now sit too high.) What would be the best way to cover the holes? Or to put on the wall instead? (I like having the display space.)
- I've considered just chopping the legs to a shorter height (this isn't some precious designer desk). I'd love some feedback on this idea.
