My first job in setting up a work space for Dino was to find a desk. I very happily lucked into one at the Salvation Army. It was exactly what I wanted and was only $40. It'll need a paint job and new pulls at some point but for now, here it is.
The next step was to rearrange our room to figure out the best placement of the desk.
So let's talk about rearranging.
It's not a quick process.
You have to move things around and move them again and then, move them some more.
Here is where we were after our first round of moving.
The wardrobe has tried 5 different spots, the dresser, 4. It takes time to figure out where everything fits best. You have to be ready for some chaos and you have to give yourself time to sit with things. Since these photos were taken nearly everything has moved several more times.
And now I'll sit with it again and see.
You also have to decide what's important for you. In my case for example, am I willing to sacrifice having my bed in a bit of an odd spot in order to create significant floor space?
Rearranging is fun (granted Dino may disagree) and easy and free!
Give it a try and see if you can create a fresh new look that you love in one of your spaces.
I hope to return next week with a new set up!
