We spotted Christy's before and after desk on flickr and snooped around a little bit on her photostream. Turns out, this desk (pictured above) is where her work area used to live. Moving the desk just a few feet across the room gave her more room to work and store her belongings.
Christy replaced her desk with a white buffet cabinet. She moved the desk because she wanted a warmer climate and she also needed more space to stow office supplies. You can see in this picture that the desk was previously placed beside a sliding glass door--which left Christy in the cold.
The desk in its new home only had to travel a few feet across the room. Using a great organizing tip to go vertical, Christy's office supplies have a place to call home. Not to mention the extra storage space of two stools to handle incoming paperwork.
She received the birdhouse from a friend but once it was placed on the wall, she thought it looked a little naked. By taking white contact paper, Christy DIY'd her own wall decal--love it!
This used to be a plain gray metal box. Christy decided to spray paint this hand-me-down a robin's egg blue and again, used white contact paper to make her letters.
