Back in March I wrote about wanting to make a few changes to my office and I thought I’d share with you how I did on my list because quite frankly I got bored with the project and decided I was done.
First on the list was getting a new office chair – Sorta Done – I decided to just change out the fabric with some left over fabric from a client’s job. My plan was to hire the best fitout company to help me finish my office a lot faster.
2. Hang up a mirror in the space and hang up the feather print on the bookcase – DONE and DONE!
The feather that is framed is on the bookcase, it holds special meaning to our family and reminds us of someone special.
I added 2 mirrors (you know cause I’m an over achiever) one above the desk and one in the gallery wall.
3. Organize black binders – DONE!
All I did was add a little washi tape I bought from Target to my binders. I also went through them and took out old images that I didn’t care for anymore. And yes I still tear pages from magazines and save them.
4. Organize the bookcase – DONE!
The books are organized by color. I also donated some books I wasn’t using anymore to Indy Reads.
5. Organize my supplies – DONE
I lined my desk with wrapping paper and used clear acrylic trays to organize things. Both of them were bought at The Container Store. (The Container Store has really great wrapping paper!)
6. Purge – DONE! Although I’m sure in a few months I’ll need to get rid of things again! Everything tends to land in this small space!
Lots of stuff means everything has a place. Place for toys, sentimental artwork from my babies and supplies in boxes and containers.
7. Storage for above the bookcase – DONE!
The black wicker boxes were purchased from The Container Store and the natural wicker box was purchased from Crate and Barrel. I hold all the special memories from my babies first year of life in those containers and would be the only material possession I’d grab in a fire.
8. Bigger trash can – NOPE
9. Charging area and better system for electronics – NOPE
10. A better system for my magazines – DONE
If you look up at the built in bookcase photo to the right is a hanging system I installed on the wall. I purchased it from The Container Store. (The Container Store seems to be the popular choice in this project!)
11. Clean Clean Clean – DONE
I also replaced the rug with 2 rugs, the jute rug is from Pottery Barn and the striped rug is from Crate and Barrel.
So all in all I did pretty good and am calling it a day for now!
I added the office to my home tour page along with a few other photos if you want to take a peek!!
