|When I look at this I just hear the "Psycho" music.|
I have big hopes for this little spot in the kitchen. I'm dreaming of having our calendar visible (the only solid system we have for organizing at the moment), our to-do-list accessible, and plenty of space for inspiration and motivational quotes. Right now the quotes are on the pantry closet door on my DIY magnet chalkboard... right now donning an incomplete (and possibly misquoted?) Bible verse. Catholics for the win.
The desk itself used to be bigger. I used an Ikea desktop and legs for a great price, but we are using the legs for another desk in the house and the short black desktop I formally used is too small and deep for the space I have now. To tide me over until the perfect desk is discovered (one that's reasonably priced of course), I'm using a folding table. Because YOLO.
I tried to dress up the drawer of desk knickknacks with washi tape, but unfortunately the tape I chose is semi-transparent (are they all that way? I'm new to this...) and it has been peeling off pretty much since I put it on. The former in/out boxes were a good idea when my desk was bigger, but for now they're just adding more square footage to the dumping ground.
In an effort to clear some of the clutter off of the desk, I hung our "needs attention" and "to file" folders, now containing who knows what. I probably should just label the whole desk "needs attention." I dressed up the translucent file folders with cute cards, but now I'm thinking it's making the whole thing look sloppier.
|I am in love with this clock though. SO cute.|
|Even the tissues look flat. They just can't even.|
Future paint color preview on the wall though!
So to all of you artists, designers, and organizing aficionados... any suggestions?? I'll post a brand-spanking new "after" picture once the disaster zone gets cleared and it's HGTV worthy (fingers crossed). What inspires you? What does your workspace look like? I love reading your comments and messages. :)
Talk to you soon!
