Do you ever start something full of enthusiasm, only to find yourself dragging before it’s done?
Well, that’s me and our office right now. I’ve been decluttering random piles of paper ‘stuff’, because I want to rework the space and prettify it a bit. But I can’t do the pretty until I finish the purge. Can I say, ‘groan’?
At this point I’m ready for a little visual inspiration. I need something to feed that initial burst of good intentions.
Like this vintage metal letter holder.
I wouldn’t mind looking at this on my desk!
And I totally love this repurposed porch railing.
Such a great piece, and my hubby likes it too! Did I mention we share the office?
If I could find a small bird cage, it might strike the right note between whimsical fun and fun-ctional.

But I would set it on my desk, minus the flowers and bow! And I think I would like one that showed a little more weathered wear and tear…
Now we all know the thing with women and shoes…
But have you ever seen a wooden shoe form stand in for a letter holder?
Letter holders can be simple and without slots…

Like this hand painted bin. And how hard would a pretty bin be to find?
I’m thinking slots are suited to my style, and a vintage toast rack might work just right, too.

Even one slot will do the trick, and it would be easy to repurpose an old napkin holder to sit on my desk.

Like this one. All it needed was a coat of paint!
So this is how I procrastinated yesterday. And even though I digressed, I still focused on the office in the end.
How do you plough through and finish something that’s starting to drag? Where do you find the inspiration?
It’s about coming home… and home is a remarkable space that tells your story. Contact me if you need a little help!
