I have been fighting to organize my studio for a long time...as you know. :) I finally figured out that one of my main problems was a huge table that I loved because it's solid wood but it's 5' x 5' and the middle is just an unreachable black hole and the shelves above useless so I decided to look for a smaller table in the clearance section of a local furniture store. I was shocked to see that most everything was in the $300. range. I was in sticker shock because I like to buy my stuff gently used with a bit of an aged patina to it and a thrift store price to match. Then there it was, in the back of the store, an old kitchen display cabinet with all the bells and whistles. Drawers and little shelves everywhere. The only problem was how would I get it home? Usually I can figure something out but this thing was heavy! I almost pushed Mr. Wonderful (not so wonderful at the moment, after all it WAS Friday after a long hard work week..) over the edge when I called and asked him to come pick this thing up. All he's seeing is one more THING into this crazy chaotic house and an hour round trip drive. I however knew this was the piece, the holy grail of organization and was willing to endure a very grumpy Friday night. However Saturday was a new day. The cabinet was installed. I made favorite meals as a big thank you. I am thrilled and Mr. Wonderful is back in residence. Phew!
UPDATE: I wanted to put in my WOYWW photo of my actual desk top too. This is after this evenings bout with Glimmer Mist and glue......I am a happy mess! Go visit Julia's site to see some of the best dressed desk messes..LOL!
