Workspace Reveal

Happy Monday! (Said no one, ever.) I'm so excited to share my workspace with you today…it's been a long time in the making, but it's finally done and I am loving it. And loving having a dedicated work zone all to myself. Except when we have guests, of course, then it converts back to a guest room.

Welcome to my workspace.  
I've taken quite a few pics, so get ready for a picture-palooza. 

Maximizing storage in this small corner was my first priority - I managed to sneak it in just about everywhere: mini file cabinet for paperwork, decorative boxes for post-its, pushpins, etc, and rolling storage for larger, bulkier items.

Quick note about the white ceramic pineapple - it's actually a lamp, not that you'd know it at first glance. The price was right, so I removed the clip in light/socket/cord from the base and am using it solely for it's good looks. Sneaky.

The desk isn't huge, but I made room for a file stand, tabletop file tray, scratch paper, coaster, decorative bowl for paperclips, and pen cup. Just the essentials, obviously.

The results have far exceeded my expectations, both aesthetically and functionally. 
The rest of the room is coming along, as well. I hope to share it with you soon. In the meantime, below is a list of the what and wheres.
