Are you all planning on getting organized in 2009? I will be getting organized out of necessity! I’m downsizing 2000 square feet off my house size in this move, plus losing an attic and storage shed. Yikes! By the looks of things around here, I am worried even what I am planning to bring won’t fit.
I found some before and afters of an office makeover at Country Living that now has a little more pizazz and doubles as a guest room. This is something I am thinking about as I will no longer have my own office. Doing double duty is a great idea whether you are combining a guest room and an office or what I plan to do, which is to combine my office into my bedroom. The more office stuff I can hide, the happier I’ll be.
I love this little guest cabinet filled with all sorts of goodies for guests to enjoy! I like to keep special guest towels that no kids are allowed to use…a little cabinet like this would be such a cute way to store them.
I really dislike most file cabinets. This is a charming way to have files hidden away in plain view in any room of the house! It looks more like a blanket chest than a file cabinet, but it contains hanging file folders.
Most of us don’t have an exclusive guest room, at least while our children are still at home. This little chest hides an AeroBed, so you can have an instant guest room when you need one.
An uninspiring office closet becomes a charming way to stay organized! I’m always a sucker for pretty boxes and containers. I love the happy surprise of opening a closet and seeing something pretty, rather than being buried by the rubble.
Stay tuned, I’ve got an idea for our 2009 Friday Linky (I can do lots of thinking while I pack!) and it involves some resolutions you might want to join me in! I am excited about it, and I hope you will enjoy it too. Details to come this week! And, just four days until my move…of course you will all be coming along with me on THAT adventure.
Have a great day!
