Deborah’s Office/Craft Room

Deborah really loves markers, and pens, and fun foam, and craft supplies of all types. Her specialty is teaching small children about the world and helping them to love learning. As we worked with her we could tell she was an awesome teacher. Her heart is with her little ones and providing them with an enriching experience is important to her.

Before: Chaos is the first thing you see.

After: View from doorway: peace

On the other hand, the items Deborah has to store to teach the toddlers were overtaking her office. She was starting to feel like she was drowning in clutter, and she couldn’t find the things she needed quickly so she would have to go buy more.

Does that sound familiar to you?

Before: The piles of boxes hold treasure inside

After: All the office supplies are beautifully organized and ready to go!

We spent a half hour talking about what her goals were for the room. We decided to rearrange the room so that she could have a bit of a storage area for her boxes of supplies without them being visible from the door of her room. This combined with sorting and purging gave her office space a great makeover in just 6 hours. We were proud of Deborah because she was ready to give away items that she knew she wouldn’t need any more, and she was ready to throw away items that wouldn’t be useful to others. We made a lot of progress and her husband was happy to see the new room!

Perhaps now they can play the piano in their new office area.

Before: The piano is almost hidden by clutter.

After: The piano is ready for music!

Time elapsed: six hours
