Home Office Makeover Reveal
This makeover was all about organization. It's not as dramatic as some of the other fabulous makeovers, but I can't begin to tell you just how nice it is to have my work space, which I spend more than 40 hours a week in, become a beautiful, organized and efficient place to run my business.
- Declutter by removing those items which you don't need or don't belong in this space.
- Organize like items and making those which you use frequently more accessible and those that you don't packed away.
- Measure everything so you know what you are working with.
- Add Value by playing to your senses, which will in turn uplift your spirit and make you more creative and productive.
- Save money by shopping your home (or maybe your mom's) and re-purpose items with everyday paper and paint for a more cohesive look.
You don't have to spend a lot of money to create a welcoming space to work in. As you will see below, I refrained from buying any more plants and came in under budget. I suspect many people could spend even less money to organize and refresh their space.
