I have a hard time committing to a big project or taking big risks when it comes to decorating my office. When I’m in my office I’m working, not decorating. I wanted to do something quick to change up the look.
I had been thinking about painting this bookshelf for many years, but because it’s made out of reclaimed wood, once I paint it, I can’t go back. I would love to put wall paper or paint just the back, but again it’s a risk with a meaningful piece. So, while I wait to muster the courage (and time) to change it, I decided to play with color and accessories.
When you're feeling overwhelmed and having difficulty getting started, it helps to make a list. Get all that stuff in your mind down on paper. Limit yourself to one line per item, if you have a due date include that next to the item. Don't worry about priority or additional detail at this time, just get it on paper. Once you've finished, group items into categories by priority, then type, for example errands, calls, urgent, etc. Relief will come as you work through the list and cross things off.
