OUr house is fairly decluttered, but our office needs some help. It kind of gets whatever doesn't go anywhere else. So....our library (and yes, we have paired down over the years), a mishmash of desks and tables to accomodate computer stuff, the piano, file cabinet, big office get the picture.


I would love to get more organization in there. I was looking at this narrow farmhouse table and think it would make a lovely desk. Wehave a main computer (desk top) and dh has a work laptop. Those are currently the two computers in there. However, if we put them on this table, where would we put the printer and scanner? Some type of shelves above?


The kids have a small desk for their computer on our main level (the office is in the finished walk-out basement). However, my laptop is currently homeless. I really need something for it, as I work at home. However, sticking it in the office isn't practical as I have four children to keep up with.


So...hit me with all of your fantastic office organizational ideas. Pictures get bonus points. :)

I would get some type of a rolling cart for printer and scanner.
