First off, let me show you where I am working today:
Drink it in! I know I am! (Don't feel TOO jealous. Within minutes of me snapping this photo, I ran inside to check my bread--accidentally made it deflate-- and Duckie stuck two dirty Matchbox cars in my lemon water, spilled said water and put a PILE of sand on the table. Totally relaxing work environment). Oh and that table? We totally built it using the Providence table plans from Ana White. If you don't know who Ana White is, you should. She's the lady who built that cool laundry basket dresser that everyone likes to pin on Pinterest, and she has a TON of free build plans. But, I digress..
Why, you ask, am I working outside, other than because it is a glorious day? Because my office is a bit of a pit of despair. Which brings us to week 3 of Organize-a-Palooza...
Week 3: Office/WorkspaceI know not everyone is blessed to have one specific room in their home that is their office. Up until 7 months ago, my "office" was a drawer under our bed and a bunch of filing boxes. Now, however, we have an actual office, which I have claimed as my office/craft space, since Diesel has claimed the garage & two sheds for his woodworking business.
Unfortunately, the office has become a dumping ground for homeless things, so it hasn't been the most productive place for me to work. In fact, I have only worked in there ONE day out of the last seven months. It was the Sunday after our housewarming party (in October), and the office had been fake cleaned to be presentable at said party.
Now it looks like this:
So I will be tackling office organization this week. My hope is that I'll be able to create a space where I can be my most crafty and productive. I pinned a ton of cool mini-office ideas on Pinterest back when I was going to turn our condo pantry into my office, so I am hoping to utilize some of those ideas this week-- I especially like the idea of creating a command center in my office.
How are your workspaces looking these days? Any creative (and inexpensive) solutions for organizing an office?
