Office Closet Organization

Hello friends!  Welcome to a new week!  And Valentine’s week! ♥ Do y’all have any plans?  Nothing big here, but I love to give the kids a treat and make it special for them.  It’s on Friday this year – our movie night, so the perfect chance to stay in and cuddle up on the couch together.

Today, I have a new organization post and I hope it inspires you to tackle an organization project in your own home.  Last month, I shared my pantry organization and holiday storage closet, and today, it’s my home office closet!

This office is where I spend the majority of my days blogging away.  I love having this pretty, dedicated space to work in, although sometimes I do just grab my laptop and work from my couch.

OFFICE CLOSET – BEFORE

Let’s start with the before, that way you can really appreciate the after! As you’ll notice, the closet itself is nice and big with shelving and a built-in dresser.  It just needed to be cleaned up and reorganized.

If you’re interested in watching how the organization took place in real time, join me on Stories and I’ll be posting the video!

OFFICE CLOSET – AFTER 

I started like I do most major organization projects – by taking everything out and cleaning.  I wiped down the shelves and vacuumed the floor.  Then I went through my things and discarded trash and put thing that didn’t belong in there in new places.

Then comes the fun part, putting the things back in an organized, pretty way!

I still need to relabel my storage boxes, but you get the idea.  Having bins in the same shape and color looks more uniform and pleasing to the eye.  In the small boxes are things like printer ink and craft supplies.

The large boxes are dedicated to James, Jordan, and household papers.

I put my camera bag and equipment on the shelf with my sewing machine for easy access.  Behind the large white boards are framed art that I’m not currently displaying, but didn’t want to get rid of yet. The big blue bins are for old memorabilia and photo albums.

I organized my camera lenses and more photos on the tall shelves.

I love how neat and organized everything looks now!

I had the most fun organizing inside the drawers.  I love my craft supplies just as much now as I did as a kid.  Over the years, I’ve passed a lot of my things down to my nieces and now I’m left with just the things I truly love and use.

The second drawer has my markers and greeting/thank you cards, along with some stamp cutout tools.

The third drawer is for paint and art supplies, washi tape and my glue gun.

The last drawer is for gift bags, tissue paper and ribbon.

Have I inspired you to get to work on an area in your home?  If you don’t have a dedicated craft closet or place for your art supplies, I highly recommend one of those rolling carts.  They don’t take up much space, and are so handy! I have one in Jordan’s playroom and it helps so much to have her paper/coloring books and colors easily accessible.

Some of my other favorite office organization supplies I put into a collage for ya.  For instance, my pretty stapler broke, so I’d like to order the acrylic/gold one below since I use my stapler all the time.  It’s amazing how many cute office things there are now- gone are the days of boring silver paper clips – you can get them in your favorite color, so why not?!  😉

Also, labeling things makes everything look nicer, so I included a labeler, along with those preprinted labels.

My favorite colored erasable pens are something I use everyday! And your drawers will definitely look neater if you utilize a drawer organizer.  Then you just have to figure out what fits where.

Things like erasers that look like macaroons are extra, but so dang cute!

    So glad you put the canvases on the closet wall. Don’t get rid of your degrees. Hang them up in the office or closet. That was a accomplishment in your in your life.
    Wish I had degrees to hang up.

    How do you organize kiddos pictures and are you all up to date on albums? I have a hard time with this. Help!

      Oh girl! I’m so bad at this! For awhile, I was printing photos and just putting them in a big bowl in our living room to flip through. I still need to organize old pics and print more!

    Now that I’m using my home office more than ever – I really appreciated this post! I specifically came to look for those wall vases with your succulents, but ended up with so much more. Thank you!
