Extreme Office Makeover

Scott and I decided to makeover our office (aka the “command center”) this past week.  Let me tell you, it was quite the task.  In our command center lives three working computers (not inlcuding laptops) and thousands of computer parts, which put together probably could make about 12 other computers.  So yeah, the office was cramped and we kept bumping into each other’s chairs.  We (okay, mostly me) decided enough was enough and we mapped out a plan for our extreme office makeover.  First, we cleared out the room and painted it a light gray color (official color name: silver tradition).  Our room is pretty small (I think about 10×11) so we figured we better go vertical with shelving.  I had seen a shelving system that the Container Store sells called elfa. I first came across the elfa shelving system on the Unclutterer blog and was inspired.  So we went to the store in Scottsdale, AZ, and ordered all the pieces a few weeks ago and then picked them up this past weekend when we were back in the Phoenix area visiting my grandma.  We also stopped at IKEA in Tempe, AZ, for some storage boxes.  Anyway, after a lot of work, we have an awesome, new-and-improved command center. Check out our before and after pictures below.  Needless to say, I am a huge fan of the elfa system and the Container Store!

  3. Wow…room to work and room to walk…looks like you found a good solution for a small office. Keeping it neat should be easy now with a place for everything. I enjoyed getting to see it happen in the video too.
