Okay so this is just a sneak peek into my new space as I'm still getting organized & moving in. I'm really taking my time sorting through everything because there was just SO much of it. I didn't realize how much stuff (read: crap lol) I had accumulated running my stationery biz!!
Below is a pic of the newly restored floors gleaming and gorgeous. This room has original pine plank flooring while the rest of the main floor level is hardwood. I love wood floors and actually we only have a few areas in the house with carpeting. When we found out how bad they were for the allergy-prone, we got rid of most of them and experienced an immediate improvement in the air we were breathing!
And.... TA-DAH! Here is one of my corners, a standard white bookcase housing assorted organizers and 'schtuff' :) The kraft colored square boxes and white magazine holders are from IKEA. The square boxes are so cool - they fit file folders perfectly so I can now finally organize magazine pages that I rip out (of the ones I don't keep, I have a serious collection and didn't realize how many I had until this move!) for inspiration and to organize all of my collage bits & pieces by color, theme, size - when I'm looking for something in particular it will be right there, no sifting through piles of stuff to find what I want - organized BLISS!
And although they are nice & neutral, those kraft colored items are begging for some color/pattern so I need to do some serious painting and papering on those - just need to pick out some colors & get busy!
I'm also going to do something decorative with my initials. I love typography & monograms and have seen these letters in different fonts, made from wood or paper mache and either painted & collaged, ribbons & tags added etc. Hmmm.....ideas are already brewing :)
Next week I'll have more pics and will hopefully be able to show you my pegboard project: I still need to pick a spot in the room to install it! Stay tuned...
thank you for 10 years!!
