Anyway, so here's the full scoop on our desk/nook area.
Surprise, surprise! It was a disaster zone. Papers everywhere, our shelves not completely attached to the wall, unable to hold anything even remotely heavy (like my files and supplies and such-- which defeats the purpose) and so on and so forth.
Today, I just cleared out the mess and organized things as best I could. I forgot to take "BEFORE" pictures (
It's a very boring nook as of now and I have lots of big plans for it aesthetically speaking, however for now, at least it's organized and looking good. I'll add some cork-boards, calendars and art pieces to reflect the faith of our family, the personality of each individual, and the full purpose of this little nook. I'll also be painting those blue shelves to match our living room decor (I'm shooting for red-- just because) and yes, fully attaching them to the wall to be more functional.
Ahh, even as I blog I am more at peace, more calm and more focused (because yes, I still work off a desktop and not a smancy laptop-- such is the life of missionaries). I am really enjoying this process and will continue to keep you updated on my shennanigans.
Which brings me to the second part to my two-fold post... Well, just look at pictures, and then we'll talk.
The *unattached* shelves that are currently holding a minimal amount of things. Trust me, THIS is much better. Baskets and paint coming soon
Okay, so the second part of my post is quite simple.
I am just requesting grace from you guys. =) Our family is transitioning into somewhat of a "busy" season and I am learning and juggling what it's like to balance every role in my life during this new season we are in. (once again, more on that at a later post) So, although it may seem that I'm not blogging as much-- I am still thinking about you guys and will be posting just as much as I can. But if my posts seem few and far in between at any time...
Well, just remember grace. =)
