Recently, I asked your advice in choosing which size file organizer to use here in the office. Thanks so much to everyone who voted in the poll running on that previous post.
…and found the same organizer in a taller version. With three slots, this one offered even more storage space. I really liked the idea of having a bit more extra storage, but I couldn’t decide which one looked best in this spot here on the desk.
Here was the side-by-side comparison I shared last week of the short organizer vs the taller organizer.
With almost a 1,000 votes, the taller one won in a landslide.
In the comments on that poll, several folks pointed out how the shorter of the two units looked a little awkward since it was so close to the same height as the lamp. I completely agreed and decided to go with the taller organizer. But a suggestion many of you made in your comments on the poll kept nagging at me.
Several folks suggested using the smaller organizer with a picture on the wall above. Duh…I hadn’t thought of that. Over the past week, the taller organizer has felt a bit, well….tall. No other way to put it. And there seemed to be a lot of “sameness” going on with the wood wrapping paper organizer on the left and the wood framed bulletin board on the right.
So, I dug through a closet and found a picture, hung it on the wall and placed the shorter organizer back on the desk. So what do you think now? The gold frame on the picture will look a bit better on Monday. Can’t say why just yet…it’s a secret.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison. So which one looks best now? The shorter organizer with a picture hanging above. Or, the taller, 3 slot organizer?
Please vote below and help me decide. If you voted for the taller organizer before and now you like the shorter one, leave a comment telling me why. Or, if you still prefer the taller one, I’d love to hear your thoughts. I don’t want to say which direction I’m leaning…don’t want to influence your vote. Can’t wait to see which you choose!
Pssst: There’s been another BIG change in the office I can’t wait to share. I’m saving it for Metamorphosis Monday. If you look closely in one of the pictures above, you’ll get a hint on the right side of one of the pics. I’m really excited about it…hurry up Monday!
