Welcome to the 172nd Metamorphosis Monday!
Greetings this fine springtime day! Hope your Cinco de Mayo, Kentucky Derby weekend was fabulous! Last week for Metamorphosis Monday, I shared a wee Before and After in my office/craft room. I removed the TV I never watched from behind the lamp and added a great little file organizer.
Here’s a close up of the organizer. You know how sometimes you buy something to better organize your life, but then you find you don’t use it? Well, this isn’t one of those things. I’m using it daily and it has really helped keep paper clutter off of my desk. If I make a phone call and I’m on hold, I grab the “to file” folder and file while I wait.
A day or two after buying this organizer, I stopped by another Marshalls. Guess what I found!
A taller version of the same organizer. In addition to the “to do” and “to file” sections, the lower section is an “inbox.” Of course, the 3 slots can be used however one wishes to use them. I brought the taller one home and placed it here on the desk to see how it would look.
I’m having the hardest time deciding which one I like. Can you help? Here’s a side by side comparison below or just scroll up and down between the two pics above for a larger view.
So what do you think? Keep the shorter one or the taller one? I’m sure if I keep the taller one, I’ll find a use for the third slot. The taller one is only $5 more so cost doesn’t need to be a factor in the decision.
Please vote in the poll below and help me decide. Which file organizer do you like and think looks best here on the desk?
Pssst: If you’re new to reading BNOTP, you’ll find the full makeover of this room from bedroom to home office in this post: Pottery Barn Bedford Home Office Addition.
Looking forward to all the fabulous Before and Afters for this Met Monday!
