Organizing the office


My office has been the place for everything that we did not know what to do with since before Christmas 2015. So embarrassing……. My son Tucker would jokingly say mom’s new office is the dining room because I was working in the dining room…. so bad.

It was time to reclaim my work space.

Even though the space is not completely done, it is much better already. Painted the god awful yellow walls with a fresh coat of light grey and cleaned out the room to give us more work space.




Added Shelving – Homedepot will cut a sheet of plywood down for you & it is the cheapest shelving solution.


Added 2 desk work areas each with an antique tin magnet board and cork board to organize our art project ideas. One for me and one for my husband John.


A front panel to make the shelf appear thicker.




Made inexpensive magnet board clips with these items IMG_4170
