I love a good thrift store. We are fortunate to have a couple of them in our town. I am in the process of setting up a command center for our home/farm. I am hoping that our schedules and to-do’s will be a bit less hectic if I can organize a place for all of our paperwork. We are still very much moving into our new home as we can only do so much at a time. It seems every project is preceded by about twenty others!
Anyhow, I have been hunting for office finds and have come across some great items to get things organized. I will try to post complete before and afters once I get everything together. My parents are going to bring a desk for me when they come next week to visit. I will be painting it to match my aqua-gold-neutral color scheme. I can hardly wait to get my “office” up and running
Right now I have a table in the dining room that is my desk and all the various things and papers that are officey are scattered in a variety of storage areas near by. One of the things my husband requested was a designated place for mail. I found this:
Mission accomplished! It gets a place of privilege on a small side table that I also bought from the thrift store for a couple bucks and painted a neutral gray/beige color.
I needed task lighting and I found this lamp at the thrift store:
It is simple and pretty and most importantly tall enough to make sure that the light will be where I need it to be.
This little key holder was from Home Depot and was just really cute. So I got it. I don’t have plans for it yet but it will match my stuff and I love it.:)
This old wire three tired tray was a thrift store find that fit in perfectly with everything and it took no paint at all – yay!
I can’t wait until I get everything painted and in place- more to come!
