I want a lovely workspace, because I think a lovely workspace will help me feel good, increase my productivity and be inspired!
However, I’m pretty untalented when it comes to tidying up my space, which is the first dreary step to take before I can decorate it. I’ve spent 2 days tidying up and it’s still far from perfect.
So, although I would MUCH RATHER browse websites which show how people decorate their space, I’ve been looking at organising solutions instead. This is far from boring though. People have found ways to get creative! Below are a few of my favourite ideas, some only practical, some both practical and creative:
People who bake, you’re in luck. Repurpose your baking tools if you aren’t too attached to them 😉 The following ideas are from http://www.realsimple.com
Cupcake carrier as knicknack organiser (alternative: icecube tray)
Baking tray as magnetic board
People who don’t bake (me too!), don’t be too sad.
