One of my favorite things about the new house: I have a room of my own! Actually, I share it with the kids, but half the room is mine. I use this desk as a room divider
I couldn't have done it with out the IKEA expedit shelves!
And the IKEA adjustable table legs. And the IKEA tabletop I picked up used at Goodwill... only $10 for the top!
I painted it with chalkboard paint to cover up what a mess the surface of the tabletop was. Now I can leave myself notes
A good reminder, right? We'll see if I follow my own advice in 2013... things are so busy already!
These bins are from IKEA too. The kids and I can keep all our junk stored away neatly!
And you'll never guess where this chair
and this magnetic strip are from
Yep! IKEA! Seriously, I'm not being paid to do this post... I just love all of their stuff for organizing. This magnetic strip has made grabbing my most-used supplies so much easier! I love having all my foam brushes in that old can. They stay up off the work surface but they are still within reach.
The chalkboard is just an old frame painted white. I painted the wall with chalkboard paint because I was too lazy to get a board to fit inside the frame. It's perfect for keeping track of my pending orders and other miscellaneous tasks.
For the record, this is the neatest this room has ever been (and probably ever will be). I really appreciate being able to leave my projects around now that I have my own desk, so I don't mind a little bit of mess in this room.
What do you think? Do I need treatment for my IKEA addiction? Do you have any other tips for helping me organize this space?
Thanks for stopping by!
