{almost there}

I'm so excited to show you the progress we've made with our desk space! It feels so much more modern and organized now with the addition of our IKEA Lack shelf and some storage solutions also from IKEA and from around the house...


This $20 shelf packs some amazing organizing potential. We were able to fit two white storage boxes and two white magazine boxes, all from IKEA, along with a woven box for computer cords etc...


I also added my favorite milkglass dish for the hubby's wallet, keys and other miscellaneous tidbits...


This great metal organizer has been hanging around the house for years, but finally feels at home above the desk. It keeps markers and other no-no's away from four prying toddler hands...


But I think my favorite new addition are the two Umbra polaroid-esque frames between the desk and the shelf. I picked them up for only $4 a piece at Hobby Lobby. You can also get a set of 9 of them here. They have a magnet on the back and also come with a magnetized tack so you can hang them on the wall. Brilliant!

{and you can also write on them with a dry-erase marker, but for now I like the simplicity of a plain frame to showcase my handsome boys.}

The only thing the space needs now is a new rug...the brown shag just isn't cutting it. Did I mention I'm coveting this one? {Yes....its also from IKEA. You can really furnish a whole house with that place.}

So what do you think? Between the lovely modern-ness of the shelf, tons of organization, and my two favorite faces in the mix, I'm really loving it.
