Desk in a box

Remove the clutter by combining all your desk essentials in a smart flip-lid box

My workspace consists of the end of our dining table and while my husband has very kindly let me invade this space, I thought the pots of pens, piles of washi tape and multiple pairs of scissors were really getting a bit much for a family living space.

So… with an old Lisa Ho box, some marble wrapping paper I made through Spoonflower and a bit of grey felt I created a storage area for all my bits & pieces, with a little mood board inside.Desk in a box blog image 12014-03-31 - Desk in a box BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace092014-03-31 - Desk in a box BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace102014-03-31 - Desk in a box BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace142014-03-31 - Desk in a box BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace122014-03-30 - Desk in a box BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace032014-03-31 - Desk in a box BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace112014-03-30 - Desk in a box BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace062014-03-30 - Desk in a box BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace04

New Year, new space

A new year calls for a new creative work space

With 2014 well underway, I decided it was time for a new creative space…one where I can work and keep an eye on Little Miss!  So I commandeered one end of our dining table {I use the term “dining” lightly as it is really our “styling/folding washing/keeping things up and out-of-the-way of our toddler’s reach” table}.  I hope my husband doesn’t mind too much!
