I also shared how I "tweaked" it a bit by adding new hardware, labels and
document boxes. (See more about that here.)
Well let's move on to the inside, shall we?
Although this little baby gives me a lot more room and storage than my old console table/desk, the inside/desk was just a big empty space. Needless to say I needed to "tweak" it a bit as well.
First step: apply these cork squares with included adhesive squares (Walmart).
I then added back my bill sorter that I got from Target years ago. (Here's something similar.) Love this thing and it has really helped stay on top of the bills. Just sayin'. (Notice that it got a label as well. I tell you, nothing is safe around here. :)
Not only does it organize my bills that are needing paid, but it also organizes desk supplies.
Found this little weekly notepad from the $ spot at Target. I just tacked it up so that I could tear a sheet off as I need it.
On the other side is my old laptop (I use it to pay bills online) and a calendar. The funky little container was a Mother's Day gift from my girls a couple of years ago. It has become the perfect little spot for stamps and address labels.
So there she be. My own little bill paying station--almost complete!
And just because I love a good before and after here's a side by side picture to see the difference.
Stay tuned for the final step: organizing my
file drawers and lower cabinet!
(Am I the only one who would end that sentence with an exclamation point? :)
