Yesterday, both the H and I had a day off of work because of the storm. Thought I’d try to make the most of it by organizing the entire apartment (trust me, it’s definitely long overdue!). Did I get any work done? I’ll give you one guess–hahaha! Although in my defense, I did get a little work done in my closet–that is already a major feat! :p
Unfortunately, bringing some semblance of order into the rest of my home was not in the cards for me. Every time I’d make an attempt, something would come up like A waking up from her nap, or my parents popping by for a visit, etc. etc. Finally, at around 5pm, I gave up all efforts and just ended up surfing the web for some organization inspiration.
Out of all the rooms in our tiny abode, I’ve always wanted to organize our little home office. Currently, it is a catchall of A’s toys, the H’s files and books, and some laundry. It also functions as a second living area where we sometimes watch DVD’s while A plays with her blocks or puzzles. For now, since it is the most spacious part of our home, it is also a place where A loves to run around and climb onto furniture.
When we remodeled our apartment, the H and I kind of de-prioritized this room. During that time, we did not really see the need to organize it, nor to make it look pretty. While it looks much better than your average storage-room-slash-home- office, I have a feeling that the space is sorely underutilized and now, quite cluttered. Plus, I hate the sight of boxes filled with ginormous toys (gifts from A’s birthday), hanging laundry, and an office area all together without any sort of cohesion. Kinda “chop suey”, if you ask me. It also sticks out like a sore thumb in comparison with the other rooms in our home that are more nicely decorated.
So if I had the time and the luxury to finally get this project going, I think finding the right storage solutions and table top organizers would be my priority to help turn this space around from drab and useless, to fab and functional.
Here is what I think I would need:
