One of our organising weapons of choice is the ikea expedit shelf, of which we have two 2x2, two 2x4 and one 4x4 shelf. They work great for all our books which are nicely displayed, but when it comes to the home office, stuff gets messy and cluttered. Since the largest part of our appartment is basically one long space, the home office is separated from the living area on one side and the dining area on the other side using the expedits as space dividers. Which meant that in the dining room, you would always be facing a messy shelf. But no more!

The cubby holes in these shelves are about the size of a vinyl LP or most square art calendars. We had two old calendars by Linda Ravenscroft lying around, and we found LP cover frames for 4 apiece. I took the cutting machine to the calendars, picked out the 16 nicest pictures from the 24 prints, framed them, screwed in 32 screw-in hooks and tah-dah, one messy shelf is now a tidy art-display!
