BEFORE: There was just too much 'stuff' on this desk.
Pictures, stacks of bills, mementos, etc...
AFTER: I hung a couple of the frames on the wall--but the REST of them were placed on the file cabinet and covered with CLEAR CONTACT PAPER. (I love contact paper!) The result is an amazingly clean workspace--with all the mementos and memories still close by.
Amazing what a different feeling it gives the room.
