If you read yesterday's post, then you know that I am working on my desk.
Here is a photo of my desk from a few months ago.
Not the most functional.
A bit mish mashy.
I took one of these shelves (its actually a shoe holder) and thought this would work.
Then I started to think, maybe 2 would be better.
But should I put them side by side, or one on top of the other?
Then I got to thinking maybe drawers would be better.
But then realized maybe the drawers would get in the way of my work space when I opened them.
Plus they stick out a bit further then the shelves, so maybe not the best.
These drawers are how I used to store my coloured papers, that is why the different coloured circles on each drawer.
So then I got to thinking, (as my brain can't leave anything alone) how about if I put the drawers on either side of my work area.
I stacked one set on top of the other.
One of the reasons why I wanted to change how my desk works, is
1. I wanted certain supplies close at hand.
2. My spiny holder scrapes my wall when I turn it and I don't want to mess up my beautiful red walls ;)
If I keep it up here, on the one set of drawers, then it is far enough from the wall, not to scrape it.
I also put my journal cards in the centre as it looked kind of empty.
Then I got to thinking…why can't I have the best of both worlds ;)
So I put my shelf in the center of the drawer sets.
I think I like this the best.
This way I can tuck things in the drawers and put higher supplies in baskets in the shelves.
Now with me being as anal as I am, I think I am going to take my washi tape drawer (which is the exact same as these ones, minus the paper I added to the fronts) and put it on top of the one set.
That does mean that my spiny holder will have to be put to the side.
But as I like everything to by symmetrical, I think I NEED to do this ;)
I am going to link this post up to "Stamping Ground" for What's on your work desk Wednesday
I hope you all had a Creative Day today :)
I had a pretty exciting day today….but tomorrow will be equally exciting and I will share that with you tomorrow :)
