In an effort to keep my computer, papers, notebooks, and lists from covering the kitchen island, I have permanently made the switch to an “office”. The fifth bedroom off the kitchen currently functions as a guest bedroom/office, and I am working on trying to make it a little more done, and pretty!
It already holds a large desk, which I also use as a craft space, and the walk in closet houses photo albums, craft supplies, all kid crafts/supplies. It is very functional and I am happy I made the switch. I found this quick tip recently and thought it was just genius! The best part, no DIY skills necessary. Simply purchase a cheap acrylic frame, take the back off, turn upside down, and you have an instant tray to hold all your pretties!
In the inspiration post, the frame was found at a thrift store for $1. I was impatient and just went to Michael’s (purchased a 9 x 12 frame for about $4)!
Michael’s had larger and smaller sizes, so you can customize for your needs. I also found this acrylic magazine holder at Homegoods and thought it would be perfect for stashing my notebooks and planner.
