Convert a Blanket Chest Into a Mini Home Office This would be a great place to keep all of my teaching papers..especially if there's a cushion on top to turn it into seating! Hope Chest, Minis Offices, File Cabinets, Trunks, The Offices, Martha Stewart, Great Ideas, Offices Storage, Home Offices
Working on making this command center in my kitchen right now. Bought the mail holder today at Goodwill for $3.93 spray painted it black. Had an all white dry erase board I cover and spray painted the trim black. Already had a big wooden E I purchased at Goodwill a while back for $1.91. Have black frames already...just need the wire baskets and a big desk calender and we'll be set for business!
Quoted from Better Homes and Gardens: Max out available space in an office closet with adjustable wire shelving. Use open baskets for supplies you access regularly and boxes with lids for infrequently used items. Divide papers to be filed in layered trays and set up file folders for items that require action in the upcoming month.
In a small space, take office storage to the walls to keep work surfaces clutter-free. In this space, cubbies were mounted to the wall and magazine holders were screwed into the bottom of the cubbies for an innovative mail sorter. For an easy and affordable work surface, transform a slab door into a desktop by mounting it to a wall and placing bookcases or file cabinets beneath it for support.
