    Mini Home Office in a Chest — Martha Stewart

    I've dedicated quite a number of posts discussing the home office (see here, here and here). As a blogger I often forget that most people don't spend every waking moment in their home on the computer. So, for those of you that just require a place to store your files, bills and other important paper...

      Storage bench turned file storage. Originally from Martha Stewart. This is a really neat idea if you don't have a lot of space but need to store files. This is better than having a bunch of file boxes because you can still sit on the bench. This works if you don't have a dedicated space in your home for an office, but could also work in a small home office that might need extra seating. :) A great idea for office storage - under bench in living / dining room

      Perfect to redo my hope chest!! Home Office Organizing Tips and DIY Projects-Hide your filing cabinet inside a chest when not in use by creating a Mini Office in a Chest. it can also double as extra seating by throwing a few throw pillows on top. The inside of the chest drawer doubles as a cork board for pinning important notices.
