There is nothing like clearing out and organizing a space in your home!
We all have those places...cluttered closets, cabinets stuffed with everything, the infamous drop-spot in the entry. And while I do have all those other spots to tackle, this desk was driving me nuts!
We moved 6 months ago and since we have this built in desk in the kitchen, I found it very handy to set-up office immediately. However, it quickly becane the mail drop, paper drop and everything drop! And with open shelving, the piles grew noticably!
We had a pile for the kids' school work, hubby's stuff, my bills, a shred pile, phone books, office utensils...you name it, it got dropped there. So out to shopping for some quick organizing baskets. It was a little difficult to find light colored ones - there were many lovely ones but most were either darker colored or a fun, but clashing color. With the dark stained wood, I really needed to lighten the area up.
I found these ivory colored storage pieces at Walmart and I think they work perfectly! Yes, someday these shelves will be painted or have doors, or just removed, but for the quick fix I'm pleased with the clean look.
