ANOTHER WEDNESDAY

Good Morning WOYWWers (and if you aren't familiar with this concept, get on over to Julia's place where all will be revealed). It's a bit dark out there today because although the sun was shining, it's now black as a bat and raining like mad - it must have known I wanted to go out ... Anyway, this is me desk today, as I left it last night after what seemed like a marathon battle to design a card. Ever had one of those days when everything you do just looks pants? Well that's what it was, but I sort of got there in the end (I think). The desk tells it's own tale of the mountains of stuff I got out in the attempt to create - looks like a bomb has hit it. Better draw a veil over that, so instead I draw your attention to my budget bargain paint storage system!
I've got quite a lot of acrylic paint but like to keep a few standard colours close at hand (rather than on the other side of the room in the cupboard). Found this wooden CD rack in a bargain store for £5.99, and it works brilliantly, not to mention using a dead space next to the curtains. As you can probably see it even came with nifty brackets to hang it on the wall.

Off out to dodge raindrops now, but back later to investigate a selection of your desks ..... but can I just put in a plea? I hate it when I get to someone's blog to be blasted by music - I don't want it, don't often like it, so please ... don't impose it on us. I never linger and I don't comment, just get out of there asap!

Although a lot of stuff has been brought out to make the card it did turn out lovely in the end - it is also fun to see your desk messy as it is usually tidy! Your new shelves are lovely!
Hugs,

great shelf! and your desk is not really that messy!

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah that's me Rosie - the card ends up almost the total opposite of whaat I thought I was going to do - but it's OK, because this one's lovely..has that weather made you go all autumnal? Hope not! Like the 'to hand' storage, so true about not crossing the room..my eye too was drawn to the fabric of your curtains..so cheerful. And Pink of course.

I love your neat desk, even though you had to bring so many things out to make your card. And what a lovely card it is, too. Since I'm a neat freak, I am always impressed when someone else keeps theirs neat. I love those new shelves. Never hurts to fill up that dead space with storage solutions. Happy belated WOYWW.
