Office – Gut

I love having an office. I know I’m not a business mogul or own my own company but its nice to have a place to go. No kids, just a place to get creative. I also see it as the “utility room” to a family. It houses bills, tax documents, I have calendars and budgets, grocery lists and plans for each day.

But when we moved into the Dream Home my office vision was seriously lost. It quickly became a dumping ground for anything miscellaneous that didn’t seem to belong in other rooms. It got out of hand extremely fast. Check out the before shots.

The office has two amazing size windows which is perfect because it gets natural night all day long. But with my huge executive desk and hutch it made placement of furniture very difficult. I tried cleaning up, getting a working surface organized and tidy. But it became very clear that this desk was just not going to work.

I needed storage and places to put printers, my laptop, pencil holders, you name it! And my desk only allowed me three drawers (one of which was for files). The hutch only housed items that I didn’t have room for on my overcrowded bookshelf. Like binders, textbooks. I got so frustrated that I decided to just start over. I sold off my desk on kijijij, and cleaned the room out entirely. I decided I needed a new look, new design, something customized for me and what I plan to do in this room. A blank slate, or new canvas if you will. Here it is.

Stay tuned for the big things I have planned for this room. Even if I have no idea what those plans are yet.
