1) Papers are easy....wires are more time consuming....especially when you take it ALL APART.
2) While I am happy with how the wall pocket thing came out (even though I hacked it in 2), it was VERY TIME CONSUMING. If anyone wants to attempt this, let me know, and I will share what I learned.
3) I need more time to purge the file cabinet before I can cover it.

Once I get the file cabinet done, and a few other decorative things....I will revisit this post and show you. PLUS, then I can cross off "home office makeover" off my goal list for the year!
Oh dreaded challenge.....how I dread you this coming week!!!!
