Decluttering My Office

We converted one of our bedrooms into an office and we live in this room. We spend so much time in this tiny room, much more than the kitchen!

Many, many years ago - I got an end table at a rummage for a couple of bucks. A nice, brown looking table that my friend, Jen, found for me. I loved going rummaging with Jen, she always kept an eye on things she knew I'd like.

I spray painted it pictures...who knew back then that so many other people were doing the same thing...

I love the side compartments...I have my side and DH has his side...and it's got a lot of reading material!
Do you see what's on top of the table?
Wood appliques! - I decided to add some to the table.

And I glued on these appliques that I found at Lowes for a couple of dollars..

And once it was dry, I gave it a new coat of white spray paint.

And this is where the decluttering came in - I got rid of five magazines.
It's hard to declutter your own things! I can help anybody but I can't help myself!

And after more than five magazines were cleared out...
Do you notice the cigar bozes? I got both of these from Goodwill for a couple dollars.
We store Storms nightly dog treats here.
