The reveal, thank you IKEA!

It might not seem like much, but this was a much needed office spruce up. You might remember the before and the story behind it. Here is the before photo:

Small changes, but such a big difference! The entire wall is now glorious storage! In fact, did you notice the best part? Empty space!!! Oh what a luxury that is.

IKEA Draper was kind enough to provide the bookshelves, and the adorable green storage bins, for my project.

This is the first time I have put together any IKEA furniture. I have to admit, I was a little scared at first because I have heard that it can be hard. It totally wasn’t! They were the easiest bookshelves I have ever put together (and I have put together quiet a few from other brands). The instructions were easy to follow, and all the hardware comes with it. Would I use IKEA furniture again for a project? You bet!

I’m so thrilled to have things in my office not only looking nice, but also functioning well. It’s such an amazing feeling to have a place to put everything (with space left over even)! And the green bins have fast become my favorite for their ability to store loose items. They really hide the mess.

Thank you IKEA!

Side note: It can be funny the things you discover when you work on a space that is going to be blogged about. Something I learned was that my office is hard to photograph, it’s narrow and surprisingly very dark, even in the lightest parts of the day.
