{extreme make-over...office addition}

OK...so there isn't really anything extreme about what I'm going to share with you today.

Basically, I cleaned my office desk. And I added some new art. That's about as extreme as I get with a space that isn't technically mine. But I do sit in here from 8-5 five days a week so I really should make it more "me" and clutter free, right?

So are you ready for the befores? They are a tad scary.

My desk...



Lots of piles, snacks, miscellaneous crap.


Not to mention the mess on my counter in the background. {We'll tackle that another day}

After a little cleaning and filing...


Ahhhh...much better!

Still a couple piles...


But if I put them all away I would forget what work I need to do! {please tell me I'm not the only one like this}

I even added a few little fall touches...


That's a pumpkin spice candle on my mug warmer...love that smell.

And while I was at it, I checked out some of the artwork and quotes I had pinned and printed out a few to hang up...


Nothing like a good cup of coffee {decaf that is} to calm the mind. :)

And I replaced this random Eiffel Tower picture...


With a nice quote...


{Mine is rooting for you too}

So there's a little peek into my work space, just a bit more organized and happy. Hope yours is as well!

Me likey! My office looks like a tornado just came through. I think you've given me some motivation to clean a little. Love the pictures!

I love the Keep Calm and Make Coffee sign. That should be my personal motto. :0)

When I worked I used to keep a TO DO box so that I always knew what needed done. Otherwise, I'd have totally forgotten. Your desk looks great now. Wonder if it will increase your productivity?
