Guess what I found??
My desk top!! It had been missing for quite some time now, buried under stacks of 'file this', 'do we need to keep this', 'what the heck is this for' and 'doesn't have a place to be so it will be here for now'.
My project for January has been to get papers, books, print outs of knitting and other craft ideas and all sorts of other stuff organized. Got my craft room done right after the first of the year, then other stuff realized that my room had some empty space not doing nuthin' but sitting there unused so almost overnight stuff started moving in. But I have almost gotten that under control again.
Yesterday I started on my desk, the basket filled of papers to be filed and the filing cabinet drawers that were so messy we could never find anything and going thru a box of receipts that had been boxed and stored when the room was damaged...forgot we had these, surprise.
Speaking of when this room was damaged (the story of which is told in blog entry titled On July 18, 2005...long story)....after the reconstruction, we had the builders leave us the old paneling and we finished out the inside of a storage closet at the back of this room. There had been a very difficult to reach shelf about 18" from the ceiling on one side, we took that down and realized it was a hollowcore door 18" wide and just under 6' long (the kind used where our water heater is).
I painted the door brown and then picked out pictures of wild flowers that I liked, traced them onto the door and painted them, then covered the top with a piece of clear vinyl. It is mounted on top of a wood file cabinet and an old printer stand. Everything we already had except the file cabinet and we found that at...where else but our favorite thrift store.

Geez, all we did was paint our desk door red. You made yours into a work of art.
I have two desks and neither one looks as nice as yours. I can still see them though they could stand a bit of cleaning. It's my file cabinet that needs organized. Dooley
Nice desk, I found my desk top last week, but it's lost again.
Oh my desk could do with a make-ove like yours Toni!!! Doesn't it feel really good when you de-clutter?
I recently found my desktop too Toni, but this was my Windows desktop. My real desktop is full of tea cup stains :)
