During our Orderly Office campaign, we asked you to check out four fabulous offices on our blog, be inspired and comment for a chance to win a home office makeover of your own. After hundreds and hundreds of you commented, Angela Skees was the winner in the random drawing after telling us why she was inspired and needed some help.
"I personally have a ton of crafting supplies and a ton of yarn held in numerous containers and on shelves salvaged from college dorm life. As a professional looking to one day make crafting a full time job, my little shed needs so much help," she said.
Angela's "shed" as she called, it is a finished-out building that's detached from her home. But the graphic designer, didn't use the space much before because it wasn't functional and was cluttered with random pieces of furniture and bins and bags of her art and crocheting supplies.
elfa shelving came to the rescue and Angela was "blown away" with how the design completely changed the layout of the room, and gave her so much work surface and storage space. She loves the fact that she can spread out full size catalogs that she's working on and can still be close to her computer.
Floor to ceiling elfa shelving gives Angela the orderly office she dreamed of, giving her a place not only for her office equipment and supplies but also a place to show off her art and books.
Before, with little desk space, Angela used every available surface to stack and store things.
Now, with elfa utility boards and shelves, everything has a home and there's still room for more!
A series of elfa drawers hold Angela's various projects, crocheting supplies and other office supplies.
Poppin Zip Folios are perfect for Angela's sketches and watercolor creations. That's Angela and her dog Gingko! Angela authors a blog littleblackmarker.com where she showcases her artwork, doodles, sketches and crocheted creation.
Poppin office accessories are a favorite of Angela's, and they can be found throughout the space, helping organize her art history books from her college days and other files and magazines.
She adores the multiple Poppin Box Benches now used to store her yarn and crocheting materials previously stored in grocery bags. And the bonus seating the benches provide makes the office double as a place where Angela and her husband often entertain friends.
"I used to only spend about two days a week in my office before, but now that it's beautifully organized I spend every day here. The makeover really made the space more than an office - it's now a place for work, art and relaxation," says Angela.
We agree! We think the transformation took Angela's space from "shed" to "stunning"!
