Unfortunately it has been in this state for quite some time.
This was originally the girls computer desk, hence the pull out shelf. But now that they each have computers on the other side of the room this has become a dumping ground. I think it’s looked like this, getting gradually worse, since the October school holidays when I started decluttering my scrapbook supplies.
Of course mess attracts more mess, which was certainly affecting my scrapbooking mojo.
Yesterday I decided it was time to get the room restored to it’s former glory and went to Office Works to purchase some supplies to fill up this big gap to stop this happening again, and to make the room look more finished.
Since I knew Kevin would be tired after work I thought I’d try and make them up myself, since I did get three of them. Luckily they were VERY easy to build and I had them done in no time.
For less than $70 and half an hour of my time I had three great new storage units. Then today I got stuck into the mess and sorted out what I was keeping and what I was getting rid off.
Just a bit of an improvement don’t you think?
To recap… before and after…
Then, of course, I thought I’d best tidy up my desk area…
Ah…much better… now I can’t wait to actually do some layouts.
