Project 52 - Week 1

I'm so excited to have completed week one! I'm hoping this rewarding feeling keeps me going to complete future projects so that I stick with my resolution for 2012: Clutter House to Simplified Home.

As I stated in last week's post, this project definitely opens up some vulnerability because you get to see the current state of my house. As you will see from my first project, well, it's just plain ole' embarrassing.

But the point of this resolution is to fix and simply things around our house. While I don't think we live in an episode of the television show, "Hoarders", I like to think that everyone has hidden (or not so hidden) projects around their house that they need to work on. So here we go!

I admit, this project was a casualty of the holidays as it definitely hasn't always looked like this. I decided today was the day to tackle our office/desk area which is located in the hallway between our kitchen and laundry room (it's where I'm blogging from now and haven't been able to do in a while!)
Here's the sad "before" picture
Ta da! Done! What a great feeling.
Everything has been filed and put away in a designated place. Now that I have a clean slate, I have some new goals for the area:

*Put up some pictures or a print above the desk area
*Add a lamp to the desk
*Do something to better disguise the cords behind the printer

Week one is complete!

A special thanks to Kathryn for taking a 2.5 hr nap so I could work on this project!
