I wish I had a "before," but just picture a room with an unheard of amount of boxes stacked on eachother. I never had a chance to unpack all of my craft room and photography supplies, and then stacked all of my teaching stuff on top of that mess. Good times!!
This was most the Kate Spade inspired stash that I bought to go with it. I am on a HUGE budget (Dave Ramsey style, mixed with single mom of a boy with autism, teacher budget, and foster parent-to-be. hah!):
Here is the room when you walk in:
Wall of boxes, concealed by that beautiful Ikea curtain. I think I lucked out.. normally, I hate Ikea fabrics! Found that rug at Ikea on clearance. I'd like to go bigger, but it works for now. That apple green chair is also Ikea, and that desk is from my childhood (aka FREE!).
On the desk:
Needs more color... but I love the clear stuff! I would like to add something fun ontop of the corkboard.
New Ikea bookshelf:
Childhood pic :)
Gotta love Ikea Shelves. Sorted paper, painting supplies, etc.
On top of the desk:
All of my papers organized! I still need to make a few labels...
Speech therapy cards, Linguistics books, tools, mail, CDs for photography (yay for finally finding those!), etc.
I clearly have a few more things I'd like to do, but for now.. it works! I'm happy to finally be done with the major part of that project and move on to the rest of my to-do list...
