My Workstation Needs Help
|February 21, 2013||Posted by fozzy under Nuffins|
I’ve always admired designer’s workspaces. They seem to be so inspiring and artistic and fresh out of a magazine. I really wanted mine to be like that. But of course with hoarding tendencies, a toddler and this annoying clingy friend called laziness, that didn’t at all happen.
You guys may wonder how I work and what my “home office” looks like. Well, here it be and prepare for a shock. It’s so not pretty. And I need someone to help me redesign and organize it. When this will miraculously occur, I have no idea.
I was proud of myself for getting that plastic tray. It held all my inks nicely and I even arranged them by height. Then of course more bottles came and now it looks like a scene from a bangketa. I do like that little craft box though. It’s supposed to be for CD’s but the stuff fit so snugly.
And the center of it all. I have no words. Looking at this picture, I have no idea how I get work done. The inspiration gods have been very, very kind.
I’m using the rocking chair nearby to hold envelopes that are waiting to be packed. Shame on you, mommy. Well Hero never liked it anyway, I say.
Random stuff in a box. I have another box of random stuff under the desk. This holds envelopes that I’ve yet to write on (oh I feel somewhat organized saying that).
I’ve got a little pull-out cubbyhole that houses paper and pens. The top I use as a drying rack / lightbox table. I have this huge bulky lightbox. I think I should get a slimmer, LED one. But that costs quite a lot. And I’ve got money stowed away but it’s for perming my hair. Maybe I should review my priorities.
And the last part would be the place of pens, washi tape, cords and books and journals everywhere (even on the printer). Oh look, there’s even nail polish. I should have shelves installed. I should. I should.
I’m thinking of having all the wood here lightened to a maple stain. I thought that having it dark would be nice since the ink stains won’t show too much, but sometimes it makes me feel like an old man. I visit Pinterest boards on home offices and it amazes me how other people could have no or very little stuff. Or maybe I’m just really a hoarder, a keeper and a lazy momma.
Any suggestions? Thoughts? Interior design people looking for a challenge?
