Office Makeover!

Friday, March 7, 2014

Remember that office makeover / reorganization that I mentioned here? Well, it is done! Yay! I am so so excited. I know you're all probably thinking, girlfriend you just moved in how can you possibly have to re-decorate already? BUT, I never really put a whole lot of effort into my office area. I had so much stuff and I was acquiring so much stuff I just got overwhelmed and did not know what to do! However, recently the mess was starting to get to me and I decided it was time to get it together. Everything now has a spot, and it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders! Last semesters school work is organized by class in a hanging file, my bills are all organized by date and type, my stationary is one one spot (note to self: don't buy more anytime soon), my printer no longer sits on the floor for Lulu to nest on (I'm telling you, this cat loves office supplies), and my pens are no longer scattered around my apartment! I have also included my new bookcase in the reorganization, even though technically it is not in my office. But it is where all my school books live so I say it counts! Oh...and by office I mean my sunroom where I put my desk...don't worry my apartment is not so spacious that I get my own corner office. 

I've linked to all my organizational and decoration items below and so far I LOVE the way everything is working for me and would highly recommend any of them. 

My desk. I honestly don't know where this came from. My mom found it at a consignment shop...however the tag said Pottery Barn! I had a piece of glass cut for the top. Book Stand | Pen holder 

This is my new mini bookshelf that sits next to my desk! It works out perfectly to hold my printer, paper and binders as well as two organization boxes! Bookshelf | Hanging File | Paper Tray | Boxes 

I got both this apothecary jar and hurricane from JoAnn Fabrics. They're perfect for storing pens, pencils and post-its! 

My lovely bookshelf. The wooden animals came from my grandparents, so I can't link to those. Plant | Box

I'm starting to see an elephant theme here... Bookends
