Office Closet Storage and Organization

Today I want to share the inside of my office closet!  I’m using this bedroom sized closet to store my small home decor pieces and also my craft supplies!  I’ve had home decor scattered around my house in cabinets and closets and even in the garage for years!  Now, I have most of it stored in this one space in my office!  And, the same goes for my craft supplies!  Most were in our lower level family room, where I’ve worked for the past 10 years!  Can I say right here how happy I am to have my own little space with a window to see the sunshine!!!!   

The idea of getting everything into one closet space seemed unlikely to both my husband and me!  But, we were both amazed at how much I did get moved into this closet!  The key was organization!  Here’s a look at what the inside of my closet looks like today!

The first thing that helped tremendously were these storage racks that Mark built for inside the closet doors.  They store a lot of small things and keep them out where I can see them!  These storage racks are an easy build and I’ll be sharing more about them soon!

storage solutions

The top two closet shelves hold my larger decor items:  lanterns, planters, candlesticks, etc.  The next shelf holds more decor:  vintage scales, pitchers, planters, more candlesticks, etc.  On the two remaining shelves I used the black Tjena boxes from Ikea to store small items like candles, small faux plants, yarn, etc.

I used these stick on metal bookplates to label the front of each box with the contents.  If I change out what’s in the box, I can easily change the slide in label.

I also have some clear plastic containers that I had on hand – the slide out drawer container holds craft paper, the three smaller containers in the middle of the bottom shelf hold small party bags, greeting cards, and decorative tags and labels.  On the floor is a large plastic container that holds my fabric supply.  At one time I had an entire dresser filled with fabric.  I went through that and only kept what I think I will use.  The rest will be sold or donated.  The wooden crate holds individual gallon zip-lock bags with faux fruit and shells.  There’s room for some serving baskets and large planters too.

I’m using a large basket to hold my faux flowers.  I had more than this, and again, I went through everything and kept only the ones that I think I will use.  Initially, I had everything laying flat in a large storage container, but I like them stored this way so I can see what I have without taking a lid off.

Organinzation is Key for Small Spaces

If you saw my One Room Challenge home office reveal, you know that I also have some storage under my work counter.  A lot of what was under there were the craft supplies that you see in those door racks.  Now, the main thing under my work counter is my sewing machine and sewing related items like patterns, a bin of trims, thread, etc.  It’s nice to have everything I need for sewing in one place too!     

Organization has been the key for me to make this small office work!  Thanks for stopping by today and if you like what you see, please share it with your friends on Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest!

Doreen, I remember the post revealing this very organized space and this reminder is timely for me. I think the secret is being strict with ourselves and only keeping what we have room for! Thanks for the inspiration! Self discipline is crucial!

[…] And, here’s the other side of the room.  I’ve kept it pretty much the same!  I still love having this closet and it’s filled to the max with home decor!  I’m thankful that the organizational boxes that I purchased at Ikea have worked well to keep things neat and so far the only thing that would make it any better is if it were bigger!   You can see the inside of the closet HERE.

Gorgeous, gorgeous gorgeous! Love the buffalo check with the floral wallpaper. I squealed when I saw your pictures. I watched an episode of a remodeling show on HGTV in January and they did a room with similar wallpaper. I took a bunch of screen shots of the TV on my phone. You've taken me right to the source. Love it all! Your room is so beautiful!
