MMB Office Project: Heading to IKEA tomorrow

Office redesign

This is the first installment in a series chronicling the progress of the MMB Office Project, or MMBOP.

Greg Beere and Jason Fisher at Content Design Group recently helped me redesign my home office. Really neat design with lots of options for storage. Plus they told me I had to get rid of the old 16" CRT, which I replaced with a nice big flat screen monitor. Read their write-up and view the renderings, really cool stuff.

We have received the carpet samples from FLOR and picked out a pattern we like, a little different from the one in the initial design.

So tomorrow is the trip to IKEA to pick up the furniture, or at least as much as I can get into my truck. I've never been to an IKEA before, but I hear I have to get the Swedish meatballs.

My office is still as messy as in the Content DG post (actually, I think it may be worse). The other goal for the weekend is to start pitching the junk and organizing what is left. No easy task. I'll update the blog with photos as the project progresses. I'm too embarrassed to post pictures of it's current state.

Thanks again to the guys at Content Design Group for helping me with this project. I've learned that if you are going to invest the money into a project like this, you need to get help from people who know what they are doing!

Looks like a big project... can't wait to see how it turns out. Love the bike hanging and may get some hooks for my office this weekend. Hanson Mmmbop as your project theme song?

You are ahead of us Marshall! We just started decluttering and redesigning our office space, argh. Why do we keep so much stuff? Went to Ikea, this weekend dedicated to design. Can't wait to see your progress!
