Gray Day, Time to Organize

I cannot work when things are not organized. John was ready to kill me the other day when I stood in the middle of our studio moving desks, printers, even our little 200lb. Chandler & Price. I could not get comfortable with the way we had had our room set up. It makes me uneasy and I cannot concentrate.


Lucky for me, my L&H partner is verrrrry patient. And knows how to problem-solve. He went out and got these not so pretty, but very practical Metro shelving knock-offs from Lowe's to help keep our workspace tidy. No more piles, no more brown boxes. Hooray!

This is where I'll be most of the morning.

Ooooohhhh....tell me more about the metro shelving knock offs. I'm re-doing my apt this fall and could use some of those.

The woman profiled is really cool, she's my mom's best friend from grammar school. Buddies since 1958!

That is fantastic! Well, they are cheaper than Metro shelves, but have done me right so far. I now have four of these puppies. You can find them at Lowe's here:
