Work has really picked up quite a bit and I'm now completely committed to getting my office put together. I need my workspace to be as functional (and pretty) as possible, and stat!
If you remember, this is what it currently looks like:
When we originally painted the office, we ran out of paint and it's in desperate need of a second coat. Since I've been using this office for about a year, I decided I need to go lighter on the walls. As you can see, it gets very little light and even the pink feels a bit too dark.
I'm going to stick with pink (because it makes me happy), but go with something lighter and more subtle.
Maybe Benjamin Moore's Opal...
As much as I love my vintage green desk, the opening for the chair is too small and it's pretty frustrating. I end up constantly hitting my chair up against it... this is the result:
It would work great with a regular chair - if anyone local to Charlotte is interested I'll sell it to you for CHEAP! All it needs is a new paint job, it has a really great shape.
I am going to get this IKEA dining table to use as a desk (ahh, lots of open space underneath and lots of desk space).
One thing I've really needed is organized and easily accessible storage. I worked on that this weekend.
The SKUBB closet organizers from IKEA are really great for memo storage:
I need to get one more small one and a couple larger ones to hold fabric I have laying around. This will free up storage in my campaign dresser.
The Container Store is currently having a sale on office supplies, so I picked up a few things I've been wanting for a while.
Acrylic hanging file holder with white hanging files and black file folders.
Acrylic sorter with zippered job jackets (I've found this works the best for me for organizing client stuff). As you can see I've only moved over one client to the new jackets so far...
Making progress, hopefully I can get this done soon!!
