I purchased paint, paint [and more paint]. Then I began painting. And I kept painting. Then I painted some more. Finally, I did a couple other projects [stay tuned for those...]. And here's my Great Wall of Organizational Bliss!!
Alright, so here's what I love about it. It is 100% functional but not stuffy, boring or cluttered. Also, I've left myself "room to grow."
Those baskets on the shelves are empty, the file cabinets aren't completely full, and the bench seat is empty [at least as of this moment anyway!].
Next, I made sure that there was uncluttered [as of now... hee, hee] desk space. This office is for the whole family, so there will be multiple people and/or computers in here, and lets face it... long flat surfaces are precious commodities. This is a little "extra" space that I was able to carve out and it may just end-up being the best seat in the house! Finally, I am sooo pleased with my oversized bulletin and chalk boards [as you can see, the kids found the chalk!]. For some reason [I blame it on my kids] my ability to remember anything is gone... therefore, I desperately need to write everything down [I know, sad.]. And now I can do it in style!!
Yay! One wall is done... now I just need to finish the remaining 4!
