Anyone who has been to my house knows that it is a small space. And while I love it's old charm and the closeness at times, it can be a real challenge to find work space and keep clutter down. This year we begun homeschooling our eldest daughter or taking her life learning to the next level might be a better definition. We needed to find a space for her to do work and store books. The living room is already full, I had to find another space for her. The laundry/hall was not being used and was always an area where random items I didn't want to think about where regularly stashed. It was pretty much wasted space. So the decision to transform this space into a study area made sense. It was not a big task to turn this area into a working space. We bought a filing cabinet and stored it where the washing machine goes, installed a shelf where the dryer would be and placed a board over the sink, most importantly, I disabled the tap. Poppy was so excited to use this space and she has been able to work with ease in our home without disruption. I have been really pleased with the space. I have been able to organise all the books and work and have been using this space myself to plan school work for coming weeks and work on my own projects and household tasks. With a good study lamp and a few art works mounted on the wall, i quite enjoy using this space. What was once a wasted space has now become the working hub in our home.
