This is my new improved office space. It's my bitch. Everything is now where I need it, and not in crate after crate on the floor. Wonder boy (aka my hubs) made the most amazing bookcase for me (from scratch) and used a milk paint with an antique something or other on top of it. I love how the finish matches the painting over my desk.
I gots room for all my notebooks. Look how tall that one is on the very right....it's a French ledger with original blotter - yea I know, you probably have a better one.
I even have room for my clipboards. BTW, the artist who did these, was told they would never sell. They are her number one product. I love stories like that.
Design books that I reference, like Sibella Court's, The Life of a Bowerbird (which is a whole other post), are easy to grab. I can even put a picture of me with my old horse, Sammy, and no one can tell me that I can't - Ha!
I have a little cart that houses all my tools...and yes, I use that calculator and will NOT get rid of it. I have the three-tiered thingie behind my photo printer labeled with Action, Pending & Filing, just like the Organizer, Denise Hughes, told me to do, and I am managing it. If you need an organizer, I will tell you, she is it. I did this all myself, but not without her working and teaching me in a former house. She should be a life coach too.
Now here is the most AMAZING thing. This is all the paper I NOW have in my life. This is it. One top of the cart. I spent most of December getting rid of all the crap I do not need, taking better care of all the stuff I do need to be The Online Dating Cheerleader. It's pretty amazing, but don't feel bad, because I still have this below on my dining room table. LEGOS. I am trying hard to embrace you, I really am.
