Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m a paper piler. I typically have three or four piles of papers on my desk at one time, as well as another one or two piles somewhere else. I have tried many, many, many systems to remedy this problem with NO success. I’m a visual person so, literally, out of sight = out of mind. Piling works for me, so why disrupt the system?? Well, because it’s ugly!! This before picture of my desk is pretty accurate – several piles. So, what’s my solution?? What tips do I have for my office to get organized and stay that way??
Hey there friends! Thank you so much for all your sweet comments about our new office space! Seriously, I am getting so much more work done simply because I don’t hate sitting at that ugly desk anymore!!
You guys!! Today is the day!! If you are here for the first time, welcome! You might want to start here and catch up on the back story and progress and then come back, ok? Thanks again so much to Linda from Calling It Home for coming up with and continuing this genius challenge! Seriously some of my most favorite and most hated weeks of the year! HA!! 😀
Here we are!! Week 5 of the One Room Challenge!! If you’re new here – welcome! You might want to start here and get caught up with what we’ve been doing for the past 5 weeks. Thanks as always to Linda for creating this crazy challenge that almost always results in a completed room that I love!
As much as I would love to go out and buy new furniture every time I decide to redo a room, that’s just never been in the budget for us. Never. So, I have learned over the years to use what I have. For the longest time that meant every room looked like a thrift store threw up – mismatched stuff everywhere. Then, I learned the power of paint. I showed you a couple of weeks ago how I transformed a cheapo bookshelf with some diy chalk type paint and some pretty wrapping paper. Today I want to share a couple of other pieces. First up the desk.
