Out with the old, in with the new

Since I had worked over time when the deli manage was off sick, I decided to splurge and buy something that I had been wanting. For quite some time now I wanted to get rid of the desk that I had in the cave. It's the one that Wade bought years ago and while it was ok, I wanted something different.
This is what I had.

For some reason what I had in mind was wood and metal. I also kind of wanted to go smaller. I found some inexpensive shelves and a plain jane desk. There is way less room for junk to accumulate here and the desk is rather small but I like it. If I need to do any crafting I have a folding table that I can pull out. Plus if I'm using the table it's going to force me to put things away when I'm done. So here is the new look

I purchased some storage containers to put on the shelves. You can see the light blue containers on the bottom shelf. Those are holding my colored cardstock. 
I may tweak this arrangement some but at the moment I really do like this.

It is really streamlined and much smaller. This gives you so much more space! And I'm thinking easier to vacuum as well.

Really the place looks renewed,
I like it much better that way.
I think the better organized your things are,
the easier you will find them.
Have a great week Ann!

It looks neater and as Ginny says, it gives you more space in the room. Good for you!

when I saw the first photos I thought, why would she change this, but now I much prefer the new look. it looks like a cozy nook and the other was overwhelming... wow, you did a great job

I love the new set up. It's so much more streamlined and updated. I hope it continues to work well for you. I've been slowly working on our office to set up areas so I can go back to doing a few paper crafts, etc. I hope to have it done soon.

I think it looks great! Much neater and organized looking!

I did the same thing some years back. I can actually move my desk now. I couldn't with the old one.

Have a fabulous day off, Ann. Love and hugs to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥
