I need home office help

Today I am working on a project for tomorrow's post that is requiring me to clean off my desk. I know, pretty radical, huh! I am very tempted to just take my arm and sweep it all into a big basket. Although that might work for some photo taking, it is not going to solve the continuing problem I have with a very small work space. I know that I can't get it done immediately, but I have been looking at what other people have done with their small home office spaces.

I love this little space. It is definitely something that would fit in with my decor.


This is very similar to the desk that I have, and while I love it I need more storage and a way to file paper work. Right now my files are in a closet next to the desk along with many of the things I have listed in my shop. (basically crammed in)


I love the sweet cottage feel of this little space, but still no solutions for storage. Where do these people put all of their bits and bobs?


This is a great organizing solution. If I just had a bit more space.


I could definitely live with this. Now If I could just talk the apartment complex and my neighbors into letting me break through a wall to give me more space.


Oh well, back to the drawing board cleaning and purging.

  1. Lovely pictures, full of atmosphere. I find l move my papers from room to room trying to find a pleace to work in peace. It is not satisfactory, so l am drawing a tiny office corner where storage will be in the height, all the way up to the ceeling. Love pretty boxes and old suitcases so hope to use those somehow. Best of luck with your corner, l am sure you will come up with a very nice solution, hope you will show? Wish you a lovely weekend, Pam xx

    1. Thanks, Pam. I basically have stuff shoved everywhere. I do ave a couple of old suitcases at the bottom of my bed that I use for some things. Can't wait to see you space when you get it done. :)

    1. Full Disclosure. That is just what I did. Now I have to find a place for the bin :)

  3. These are some very pretty work spaces and I'd love to be that organized and well decorated. Actually, my 'office' is the dining room table. Hubby's office is the one that really needs the work of purging and cleaning. Good thing I don't spend time in his office! :) Have fun purging.

    1. Time, money, and space are definitely not my friends at the moment, Pamela. As my little space is in my bedroom I can't close the door on it. That means looking at it constantly, which I am tired of doing.

    1. There never seems to be enough space, does there?

  5. My office and crafting space has been combined and I can barely move in there. Right now I have a table set up with my light box on it, crates of crafting supplies stuffed under it and the floor has a tarp spread out with a chest on it that I'm in the middle of painting. Talk about no room. LOL - fortunately there's a door that I can close so my husband doesn't see my shit show going on in there. :-)

  6. I wish I had a door to close. Unfortunately as it is in my bedroom it is causing me nightmaares :)
