Happy Monday! It’s easy to be in love with a Monday afternoon when you are still in Winter Break. It’s just one of the many benefits of being a teacher. Today, my husband and I celebrated another reason: Teacher Hero Day at Tijuana Flats!
My dangerously delicious blackened chicken salad
With one set of drawers full, I decided it was time to
pass some gas put my new drawers together for my office/craft room.
This is what the room looked at the beginning of the new makeover:
The first step was to just painting the office and moving the furniture around. This happened over the summer and through the course of “living in” the room, I was able to adjust things so that it suits my needs more efficiently. I moved my kitchen table-turned-desk-turned-craft-table where the orange chair is and move my desk-always-was-a-desk to the other side of the room. This left an empty, awkward space under the shelves on the wall:
Enter two storage carts!
They were SUPER easy to put together and I was able to do so in about 15 minutes from start to finish.
I spent the next 45 minutes deciding what to put in each drawer and in which cart. The final conclusion was to put all of my Christmas card/gift tag materials in the cart on the left and my more multipurpose materials in the one on the right; items like scissors, rulers, paper punches, and office supplies. I’m sure, like the room in general, the more I “live in” them, the more they will morph to suit my needs.
