So. My work space has recently expanded to include the "nook" that was previously reserved for dinners. The table hasn't seen a plate on it since Thanksgiving, and may never again until we move. It's wear I pack the pillows, and now, the jewelry! I thought it would be nice to have a little box mounted to the wall to keep things like tape and scissors in so that I can actually use the table.
Oh god, it really make me look like a lunatic. Let's see- that big roll f paper on the ground is what I'm wrapping the pillows in now. That pile of paper is actually a garbage that I should empty. NExt to that is a box full of plastic envelopes the pillows go in. You can see the tops of my new Frye boots that take me roughly 15 minutes to take off every time I wear the, which is proving to be the worst thing ever. And then on the left you can see a chair piled with jackets, even though two feet away is an empty coat rack!! and just behind that is a door with a ROW OF EMPTY COAT HOOKS. What is wrong with us??
So anyway. After scouring the apartment for a suitable container, I found this handy box that I got from Target months ago with the hopes of organizing my post office receipts and such. Clearly that didn't happen. I also tried turning it into a light box for photos, which didn't work out either.
So I found my heavy duty hammer which I keep behind the ceramic dogs underneath the TV. (I may be messy, but I can always tell you where anything is in this apartment. Just ask Ben.)
And then I found a tack, which I had noticed on the ground in the corner by the kitchen door when I leaned my white board against it.
And then, I hammered the tack through the box and into the wall. So strong! So sturdy! I filled it up with string and stamps and inks and scissors and tapes!
Look how glorious!! I took off the tape and closed that wall, and filled it up with all sorts of [heavy] goodies.
Wow. So organized. So full of beauty and fun things. Maybe I'll put a little tab in that little tab spot on the front that says SUPPLIES.
But then, just as I turn around to scan the table for other [heavy] things I can put in it....
On the floor. Dead. Everything spilled.
So I just put on the table, like a normal. Boring.
So. That's that. Not everything looks like this:
Sigh. but I really wish it did.
