You wouldn't know it to look at my tiny nook of an "office" but I actually get a lot of work done here:
I pay bills, blog, work on various computer tasks, etc. It was a mess, nevertheless, and I felt like it needed a lift.
Far too much crap on that bulletin board!
It's functional for me, but some day I want a real office - like the pretty ones I see on some other blogs. A space to get really creative!
For now, I can switch out some of the fabrics. I already have the cute new lamp, why not go with a touch of blue?
Fifteen minutes and a heavy duty stapler was all it took to spiff up the chair. I really love this print I found at JoAnn - half off. I had enough to make a couple of toss pillows for the living room chairs in here, too.
About the same amount of time it took to sew a new liner for the binder basket underneath the desk. The blue lampshade - I love it.
Clearing off the clutter did wonders. Emptied the file pile and the trash, cleared out the drawers a bit, dusted underneath it all...
...and unloaded that bulletin board. I still might paint the top of the desk, switch out the hardware, and choose a blue burlap to re-cover the French memo bulletin board. But what a difference a little spiffing made. (Now if I could only take better pictures of it all)
