Getting Organized in the Office!!

May 25th, 2014

HomeGoods contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I was interested in giving away some gift cards….ummm… OF COURSE!! I’m obsessed with HomeGoods, and my husband can attest to that. So, this post is sponsored by HomeGoods. All opinions are 100% mine. I was challenged to organize a room with products found at HomeGoods as part of their Organize in Style program. 

My office was a disaster for the last four years. We gave it a complete overhaul in the last month! It was VERY dysfunctional before and the catch-all in our home for all the papers, bills…etc and believe me, it was ALWAYS a mess. One thing I have learned about myself over the past few years is that chaotic spaces are no good for my stress level. Are you like that? I need calm spaces that I can relax in and concentrate.

I love the new design, and I actually spend time in there these days! Hallelujah! Although the IKEA desk was a great idea in theory, I actually hated all the cubbies. It was always dusty, and I didn’t need all the spaces. So, it was always unorganized which was also no good for my stress level.

After we moved our IKEA desk out of this room, and traded it for a comfy couch from Down East, I painted the walls with Behr Dolphin Fin. It’s a great grey color, and it’s a very bright, airy room now. It was pretty dark with the dark blue wall before.

I know some of you may be wondering where the “desk” area is going to be in this so-called “office.” After a long look at my actual needs of functionality, I decided that I didn’t need an over-sized desk. It wasn’t holding anything important and the closet was plenty big to hold all of my important craft stuff. But, there were a few things that needed a home. The corner of the room became the newest spot for clutter, and I needed to change that quickly or if you are like me, that time will fly by and it would have been months before it was organized.

After I was contacted by HomeGoods, I went and bought a few things to organize the space.

The hanging file holder was perfect and very flexible to change out when I need different categories. I printed cute tags out on card stock and clipped them to the front! I’m on the Stake Girls Camp committee this year, so it’s on my mind, and keeping all of my notes in one place is sooo convenient.

Although, I knew I needed a desk, I didn’t want a large one like I explained above. I wanted it to be small and functional, but I didn’t want it to be a catch-all for papers like my office used to be. So, I bought these cute grey corbels and attached them to the wall and placed a piece of glass across them. I got the glass at Jones Paint and Glass for $22 and attached it with large glue dots from the local craft store. It was an inexpensive way to get a great custom-sized desk!

The small desk is exactly the right size to keep things organized around here!

I still needed a little bit of space to put pencils, pens, and scrap paper when I needed to make notes, so I bought this cute shelf and a few smaller items to help with that.

I put pieces of fabric along the back of the shelf to spice it up a bit. :)

I’m quite proud of how organized it has become, and I have vowed to keep it that way!

After all, if I want to actually spend time in the room, it needs to be a calm place.

The pink chair was a thrift store chair that I had reupholstered with pink pleather. I love it! Here is another reminder of the room before:

Thank you HomeGoods for helping me organize this space. And truth be told, I would have shopped at HomeGoods to complete this space even if they had not contacted me for this project. Bible.

  81. I love how you put together that desk! I’ve been looking for a way to add a desk to my apartment (let’s be honest, just sitting on the couch is not a productive way to work) that wouldn’t take up a lot of space, wouldn’t be expensive, and also wouldn’t have a million pieces that I would have to put together. What you did was brilliant!

    I love the kitchen department!

  231. I love how you’ve organized a small space and made it so functional! I really need to find the nearest Home Goods and check them out! Also, I’ve looked at that paint color in the past. After seeing it in your space, I definitely think I’m going to use it.

    I obsess about organizing my office but we are in a rental and don’t want to put too many holes in the walls (DILEMMA!) oh how I want to use ALL THAT WALL SPACE! alas…I must settle for what I have but there has to be a better way. I absolutely LOVE Homegoods for their kitchen and organizational items as well as the decorative pieces. They are all very stylish and timely (and I also find that they are quite tasteful and not cheap-looking).

    So excited reading your article. The timing couldn’t be more perfect. I work from home and just couldn’t take my unorganized office anymore. Just started to slowly pack things up to get an empty room and just start over. It’s taking a while because I still have to work ! LOVE your ideas and LOVE Home Goods, I shop there all the time, for nearly everything around the house. They are so reasonably priced and believe it or not, even items on clearance are always perfect and great items vs bargain bin damaged items at other stores. Hope you pick me ! When I’m finished with remodeling my office, I’ll send a picture. You read my mind, I want a relaxing place in my office too, a comfy chair or sofa – I can work on a laptop or be on a call anywhere ! Cant wait and I love your site, Pinterest – everything – wish I could find a healthy balance between DIY/crafts/decorating and my job/family :) Thanks again for sharing with all of us !

  269. I visited a Home Goods store for the first time a few weeks ago and I am in love! It’s at the top of my “fave stores” list!

  270. I’d love to win. (Love the pink chair).

  271. Love the Home Goods organizational wall pockets! I haven’t been to Home Goods in a while but that ends TODAY! Thanks for the inspiration I needed.

    Oh, and the pink the leather chair….to DIE for!

  272. Home goods is my jam!

  273. I like to shop for storage and organization items.

  274. This is great! I LOVE the molding design on the wall!! And of course I always fantasize about being more organized :)

  275. I love the mirrors, lamps, and wall art, especially the organizational wall hangings! Loved your wooden cubbie shelf! I need one of those!

  276. I love pillows at home goods!

  277. Lora W. says:

    I love to look at their decorative items. I usually buy baskets and kitchen gadgets.

  278. Lots of good finds at that store!

  279. love it!! the pink chair is GREAT!!

  280. Lori Fortini says:

    I LOVE the pop of pink against the gray!

  281. I love Home Goods’ home decor!

  282. When I looked at the first “before” picture I thought: wow, it’s nice. The desk is a little bit too big and I don’t like the chair, but beside that it is really not bad, I’m curious what can she change on it… But then I followed the whole process of the changes you made and I must say that it’s perfect! I love minimalism and however the original design was also in this style, the result is the place where I would love to work (but I would still replace the pink elements that are a little bit too bright for me, just my personal “problem” with this colour). I hope you feel proud and happy with all you’ve accomplished :)

  283. I LOVE the desk! I didn’t see it mentioned where you bought the corbels though? Were they also a find at Home Goods? If you get a moment will you please reply. Thanks- Sarah from lifeshouldcostless.com

    • Hi Sarah! Yep HomeGoods! xoxo- Brooke

      • Wonderful! Thank you so much! I have a project in the works that I haven’t been able to finish because I couldn’t find corbels that would work and even getting them custom made didn’t pan out. These ones look like they’ll work though. I’ll be making the trip to Salt Lake soon to get them. Thanks again!
