1. To separate into parts, sections or groups.
1. To overcome; defeat.
I have to say ever since I discovered Pinterest I’ve had an overwhelming urge to purge, organize & makeover every part of our house. Of course deciding which areas to hit first has been the hardest part. So first things first, I devised a “to-do list” and did what any other person would do…I wrote them all down on sticky notes and tossed them into a baseball cap.
And voila…winner winner chicken dinner…home office makeover it is!
Now, I consider myself extremely lucky to have dedicated home office space even if I have to share it with my husband *pouts*. At the end of the day when the kids are in bed and the house is in order I’ll head into the office to work on unfinished design projects, review the next days events and ultimately unwind by popping into my favorite blogs, reading or watching a movie. For a long time this was my nightly routine but over the past month or so that ritual has ended. I don’t find myself wanting to work in that space, it’s not inviting and it doesn’t inspire me. When I walk in I see clutter, disorganization and in all honesty it’s depressing and distracting. Did I mention I share this office with my husband? His workspace is the true definition of organized chaos.
I want a space that is bright, fresh and organized. I’m a web/graphic designer; I need to be creative and I need inspiration! Most importantly I need to utilize this office during the day now that my oldest has started school and in its current state that’s just not possible. With that said this is what I want to work on during the upcoming weeks:
- Declutter: Purge & organize
- Desk: Refinish or buy new?
- Printer Cart: Ditch the 90′s looking black and silver stand
- Storage: Totes, Bins etc
- Shelving: Ikea Lack and/or Expedit Series
- Bookcase: Refinish
- Accessories: Extra Lighting, office supplies, wall art
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. Commence Operation: Divide & Conquer!
