Welcome back to Thrifty Thursday, where you find tips on how to live YOUR classy life – on a budget!
With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season (and everyday life, in general), it can be really hard to stay organized. One place that get’s easily disorganized is the office. (This is THE one place I have to keep organized – being that I spend so much time in there.)
A good way to have an office space that you love is to find pieces that are fun and classy too. (Your environment should compliment your personality; just like your clothes should represent who YOU are.)
One major piece that was a must-have, for me, was a sturdy bookshelf. (I’m a book lover; what you see below is nothing!) But I didn’t want just any bookshelf – it had to be pretty – not boxy or bulky. I also didn’t want to spend a ton of money on new storage…
You know that frustration you get when you have a specific item in mind, but you just can’t find it? That’s what I was experiencing, until… I looked at what I already had. My baker’s rack was right there all along! It had just the right colors, decorative scroll design, shelving and that classy touch that I was seeking. Who knew?
So, here’s my baker’s rack-turned-bookshelf. (That I also happened to purchase from Craigslist – so it’s a bonus savings – for it’s original purpose and re-purpose!)
Note: This would have made a classy work desk as well, if I didn’t use up so much space when working! What do you think?
