Office Makeover Part 2

I shared with you recently how much I love the inspiration I get from Pinterest. I thought it would be fun to show you how I used the site to organize my office.


This is the main wall-o-stuff when the project began. I wanted to avoid using plastic drawers if at all possible while organizing my business and craft supplies. However, the advantage plastic storage has is that the contents are more easily seen…and therefore more easily accessed. I knew my makeover had to include more open storage while using a very small budget. Pinterest gave me dozens of ideas, here are just a few of them.

I shared with you in Part 1 how I got my Expedit bookshelf for $20 and that I have more purging to do, but for now I am happy to have like items organized and accessible.


 So here are some of the Pinterest inspirations with the results in my own space.

This piece was a really good deal – it was 50% off this price!

Did you notice the egg carton on the sewing cabinet? That is for another Pinterest project I hope to finish this month. My goal is to complete at least one Pinterest project each week with Julie over at Dutch Being Me.

Have you used Pinterest for browsing but not for creating yet? Is there a recipe or craft you’ve seen in a magazine but haven’t just done it? What’s stopping you? Put it on the calendar this week and let me know how it goes.
