Get Your Home Office Organized


 I’m kicking off 2013 with some major organization projects! You would think I’m nesting or something. Ahem.

I guess I technically am since our new child will arrive IN 2013 {we pray}.

This is also week ONE of the “Dog Days (of Winter) Are Over” link party…and it’s all about “organization”.

As y’all know, I work from home. I consider this space MY home office, although I will admit I have to share it with the hubs occasionally. He’s a hot mess when it comes to organization so I try to keep him out of here as much as possible.

I tell him that his office is the couch! He has a laptop. Who wouldn’t want a couch office? Duh!

This seat right here is where you will find me on most days. Blogging away.

We do a lot of brainstorming in this space. One of my favorite organizing tools that we added to this space has been the giant white board.

I wanted a creative yet attractive way to incorporate a GIANT white board in our office. This particular one was a self-adhesive white board that we stuck to the wall and then trimmed out to match the desk.

Blog ideas, post schedules, mind maps, video line ups….all go up on the big IDEA board.

I have tons of storage bins that I use for things like envelopes, checks, markers, receipts, kids activity books, etc.

My dad custom built the desk and bookshelves. Amaze-balls, right? I gave him my vision and he made it come to life. He actually created something that was BETTER than my vision. He’s good at the wow-factor.

I love all of the custom drawers and cubbies. It gives me lots of room to store my files, pictures, printer paper, card stock, office supplies, etc.

I wanted something durable for the counter-top so we chose butcher block. It’s something you normally see in a kitchen, but I love the use of it in a home office space.

Not to mention that it’s nice and smooth for when I need to be writing.

I can finally say that I love working from home now that I have a space that is ORGANIZED and decorated!

The boys love to come sit with me while I am working so the extra chair….is vital. Otherwise they are trying to sit on my lap. This was the chair I took from my grandmother’s house after she passed.

My uncles were making fun of me since it looks like it came straight from the 70’s. But for me? It was the inspiration behind making the accent color in this room rust orange.

My 2013 goals are to keep this baby organized! As long as the hubby sticks to his couch office I should be golden. Ahem.

Will you do me a favor? If you like this project will you PIN IT? Thanks so much!

    I own that same exact chair! It was my great grandmothers. Only the back is all torn out (b/c of the cats) and there is a different cloth upholstery on the cushion.

    Your office space looks great!

    Compared to the office I have to go every day, what you have managed to put together seems almost surreal!
