Crafting Monday: Desk Space Makeover!

So, when my mom was in town a couple weeks ago, we decided it was time to clean up, reorganize, and cute-ify my desk space, making it an ideal place to do both school work and crafts.  Everything we did was easy and cheap, and it made a world of difference!  Let’s take a look…

Purchases:
Three floating shelves from Target
Three coordinating fabrics
New ribbon
Scrapbook paper
Four embroidery hoops

With all this, plus what I already had, I:
-recovered the seat of my chair
-made simple curtains for my little shelves next to the desk
-covered my silver magnet/pin board with fabric
-put paper in embroidery hoops for the wall
-“ribboned” some jars (and will soon be covering the lids with fabric)
-laid cute piles of fabric and ribbon on my new shelves
-and you may notice, I switched the two side cabinets. Not a big difference but it worked out better for what I wanted (moving the printer farther from the entrance and making more space for the lamp and other items on the left)

Here’s a shot of the shelving section..sorry the lighting was bad!  It was at night but I just had to get some shots to share!
