This week’s Workspace of the Week is AlmostBunnies’ office makeover:
You may remember we featured AlmostBunnies’ tiny desk office back in 2010. Since then, she has grown the space to meet her new needs, and we love the changes. The paper file boxes nicely hold her paper filing — bank, health, auto, utilities, taxes, pets. A filing cabinet isn’t for everyone, and it’s nice to see an example of a simple-to-use and functional alternative. The plastic containers on the small shelves contain beads for crafts. The pen cups, which she had on her previous desk, are still working wonderfully to hold her writing utensils on her new desk. She explains that she has two metal drawers that sit below the work surface that hold more craft supplies — an important task when one has pets in the house. I also adore the pulled string held up with two push pins that serves as a simple clipboard for inspiring cards and small pieces of artwork. In this room, everything has a place and (when not being used) everything is stored in its place. A truly wonderful home office, AlmostBunnies, and thank you for sharing it with us.

Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.
