Hubby’s Desk Redo-Part 1 July 5, 2010

By now you are aware that I love to shop from home and often start projects at random times-say chatting on the phone with a friend.

That’s how hubby got this mini desk remodel. His desk could have been considered organized chaos, I simply thought it was a mess. I hated how his paperwork ran over the banister, but this was because his desk was downsized from the large conference table to the tiny computer desk.

In an effort to give him more space, I took a shelf off the wall and placed it above his desk. My initial thought was to go to IKEA and get matching boxes, but then I realized that we had plenty of storage boxes already at the house.

The four boxes hold CDs, receipts, charity envelopes and headphones so the cat can’t chew them. The desk is finally free of dust and paper piles and there is room for his laptop to rest without pushing paper to the floor. The keyboard drawer holds two paper holders for misc papers and there’s room on the wall for temporary files.

It took maybe 20 minutes to complete everything.

The next step of the plan is to add a wide shelf on the wall to create a L-shaped desk so he can have some additional room to spread out as well.
