Project Declutter Part II: Overwhelming Workspaces
Multiplied Storage Once Pam cleaned out and assessed what to keep (most of the furniture moved elsewhere), she and Lorie installed an office-style Elfa system from The Container Store with plenty of shelving to lift items off the desk. The new L-shaped desk doubled her work surface. How to DIY Think vertical: Don't buy short furniture if a tall item offers more storage in the same footprint. To house oversize 12" x 12" papers, Pam's husband made the metal bin atop the shorter cart from an…
Think Vertical for a Space Saving Home Office
Wendy’s Shoebox Studio over at Apartment Therapy New York is just 350 square feet space, which means every square inch counts. She’s worked with a narrow space and created a multi-tier wall-mounted home office which maximizes space and looks charming (when in doubt, add flowers or decorative items). “My solution to this was to get a desk with shelves that mounted to my wall which took advantage of the vertical space available.
Finally, 3 years after moving in, I invite you to take a tour of my stamping, scrapping, cardmaking, general papercrafting studio and home office! Let me start off by explaining my room is a "flex space" -- it was the third/tandem garage space (approximately 16' x 12') that was already finished out when we found the house just completed.

I love elfa...before/after studio shots
You know what your room looks like when you decide to clean the closet, get everything out and have it in piles around the room, and then decide you are too tired to finish? Well, that was a pretty good visual of my studio before its storage makeover. It was a mish-mash of whatever we had left over...2 old desks and a printer stand that's wobbly. Now I'm an IKEA girl at heart, but unfortunately the closest one to me is 569 miles away...a little too far to drive, and for large purchases I…
