I don't have too much to say about the office other than I am thrilled (and actually a little surprised) that it's finished.


We have a side for Josh to use for his school work, a bookshelf for extra storage, and my own little craft/work nook. Maybe it's not magazine-worthy, but it works for us :)

There was a lot of moving, re-arranging, purging, sorting, building, "sewing," hemming, painting, etc...but we think that it was all worth it. If you aren't convinced, see what it looked like before.

Here it is (beware: I was very excited to photograph our office after so much work; I might have gotten a little picture happy!):

My side (formerly Josh's side):

Lots of little storage options! I found the shelf at the thrift store for 5 bucks and I think I paid about two dollars for the vintage catalog card holder. The DIY Tin Tier helps add some fun and colorful storage :)

Couldn't forget a little shipping center for {the shop} or my old Minnesota license plate!

One my favorite things I did was make table skirt (using our old Ikea curtians) to wrap around a folding table. I couldn't help but make a little ruffle (using hot glue!).

The skirt hides all sorts of extra storage!

Josh's side (former my side):

Josh was nice enough to switch sides with me so that I could have the little nook in the room. What a guy! In exchange, I offered him the other three walls for his airplane picture collections :)

We can actually walk to the closet now and shut the doors too!

Extra book storage! Kudos to Target bookshelves :)

Now let's see if we can keep it this way! What do you guys think?

  1. Looks great, Nicole! Having an organized space makes me so much more productive...which is why I'm not very productive at our house :D

    p.s. when did you update your blog design? Looks great!

  2. It turned out awesome. I love everything, but especially those stacked tins. Super cute :)

  3. Woo hoo!!! Congrats on the organization. I still need to organize my own desk...maybe this weekend :-)
