Even in this digital age, paperwork can become a problem – and it can be overwhelming. In this project, we organized 15 yrs worth of paperwork. Then we created a system for dealing with any incoming paperwork and separated spaces by activity.
We took the TV tray set (way back there) into the Living Room and pulled the desk from the Living Room into the office to establish a true work space for sending greetings, paying bills, and writing work schedules.
Two Bookcases were purchased for this project and put on the opposite wall. This one was emptied of books and turned into a sorting station. The two trays at the top are for incoming paperwork – one for work life and one for home life. The bins below catch magazines and contain a mailing station (file folded and labeled greeting cards/stamps/stickers/address labels/envelopes).
We pulled that desk and tiny bookcase out – pulled the chairs closer to center, and we added a coffee table (already in the room, just re-purposed) and gorgeous cabinet (that we pulled from the office).
This gorgeous cabinet previously housed the modem and printer – now it is filled with books and journals and supplies for this client’s bible study. With clutter eliminated and all bible study supplies located in one space – this room is now a place of calm, comfortable, reflection.
