I promised I would continue with the home tour, so far you have only seen the downstairs. I think I will take you through the upstairs one room at a time, as we get everything settled!
This week, I completely reorganized and made over my office.
I am truly embarrassed about what a disaster it was before the "makeover". Granted, we have only been moved in a little over a month, but if I'm being quite honest - my workspace has always been a mess.
Here is the before picture: (i'm cringing just looking at it!)
I can't believe I ever worked in this area. Who could concentrate or get anything done in a space like this? Not me. I have been scouring the internet, pinterest, websites... etc for ideas on what to do to organize better. And after days & weeks of trying to decide, this is what I came up with.
And here is my workspace solution: (this is the same room, I just set things up on the other side)
In case you're wondering, this entire set up was purchased at Ikea. The shelving, lighting, storage bins, desk, organizers.. everything (except the computer & chair!).
Total cost: ~$300.
Set-up time: Less than 2 hours.
This is such a great solution for me, I can organize all of my photographer gear, marketing collateral, paperwork... etc all in the shelving beside me. I don't have to roam around the room looking for things anymore. It's seriously amazing.
I actually like to be in my office now. Of course, there are a few more things I'm going to do to the area to decorate and make it a little more fun, but for now- I'm totally happy with how it turned out!
