Office Madness: Before & After (Part II)

I promised pix of my newly reorganized office, and then I got crazy-busy and haven’t completely finished moving/unpacking. As mentioned yesterday, I’m so excited about it that I simply can’t wait to share photo evidence of the transformation with you!

Without further ado, viva la transformación of the Wall of Work!

OMG, Erica. Words fail me.

Can you even reach the research books above the top shelf, shorty?

YOUR TURN: So, are you as proud of me as I am? Can you believe the utter transformation of my office in less than a week’s time? Yay, Target storage cubes! Yay, Home Depot slabs of laminated particle board! Yay, brand spanking new office!

    P.S. Why isn’t the computer tuned in to the Manuscript Mavens page?!

    I think it’s tuned into a database system on a remote server… prolly cause that’s how I financed my new office. 😉

    Oh lord, the first pic and I thought we were soulmates, then you cleaned up! Now I’m not so sure~! I’m over here searching for your storyboard thread. I’m so sick I can’t go to the workshop. But Darcy’s coaching me via email. Such Maven generosity.

    E, will you kick me if I ask what happened to the other wall?

    Erica, I actually straightened my bookshelves today. All this extra crap from an upstairs remodel landed in my office, and it’s taken forever to get it back out again…

    I pulled all the book spines out so they are in a straight line. It’s supposed to be good feng shui. And it helped me avoid revisions tonight 🙂

    Fabulous work, Erica! I applaud your organizational skills. I attempt organization but I’m not sure I accomplish organization. I know where things are. Does that count?

    Oh – Oh – Oh – this makes my little Feng Shui crazed heart so happy. Yippie! So glad you got that office organized, my friend! 🙂
