Since we’ve moved here I have not had an official office. All my office-worthy things are spread all over the house. My laptop lives either on my night stand (bad habit!) or on the kitchen table. I have chargers at each location. A desk with paperwork, files and half of my jewelry supplies cluttered the quest room while the rest of the jewelry supplies floated where needed in a Pampers box. Art supplies are in 5 different places and tools are in the hall closet. With the given space, I was as organized as I could be but it just wasn’t cutting it.
Hubby kindly moved our old dresser to the basement and brought the desk down from the guest room too. The basement already serves many purposes from exercise room and man cave to living room, play room and laundry folding zone. The space isn’t large but we do our best to use it well. The only undedicated space is the corner between the play area and the laundry room. A whopping 10 square feet… and I will make it MINE! (Cue evil Cruella DeVille cackle) Excuse the mess… It didn’t occur to me to take pics until I was elbow deep in beads, art supplies, tools and organization.
I also filled the dresser drawers with my bead supplies and made a jewelry display from a big picture frame.
To make the jewelry display I grabbed one of the big frames from my collection I used for the Christmas mantle display this year. I attached twine (also from the mantle project) to the back of the frame tightly with a staple gun. I only ran 3 strings so I could have lots of room to hang longer jewelry pieces. Easy Peasy!
