office redo

I had the pleasure of having my daughter home for a whole week! 
This doesn't happen very often since she is in the middle of college. I take what I can get! 
So I didn't do a lot in my workshop last week so that I could spend as much time with my daughter as possible. 
Well you know I can't just sit spring cleaning was well under way in our house. 
I managed to get all my junk drawers cleaned out and my wonderful husband took it all to work today and threw it in the dumpster there :) 
I then tackled my dumping zone aka my office. 
It's the place where I store all my paperwork and all the things I pick up, clean up and put in my booth. 
So this is what I've started with. 
When people come in our front door my office is right off to the side in this room. I'm constantly trying to distract people and lead the away from that area in order to avoid my own embarrassment.
I moved some things out.
Cleaned it all up and moved in one of my sideboards. 

It's not exactly what I had in mind...I originally bought this piece for my office. 

But as luck would have it, someone else fell in love with it and I sold it :( Really happy for the new owners...but now my own search continues. 

Ohhhh right, back to my office. (had to take a teary moment ) 

 Until I find my forever unit, I will use this one.
 Baskets help to stay organized :)
 LOVE these aqua mason jars.
 Love the marble lamp...don't love the shade, but that can be fixed. Not sure if I'm keeping this or letting it go.
 I need to replace both this bookshelf and the car holding corner unit. But again, I haven't found a replacement. That will come in time. I'm finding that I can be patient when it comes to finding things for "me" :)

Now it's Monday, hubby is at the office, daughter is back in school and I better get off the computer and back to my workshop. 
Have a great Monday :)

  1. De-cluttering is a good thing to do once in a while and getting furniture or things that can help make your things organise is a wise idea too. Thanks for this blog.
