Organize Me Pretty Home Tour

I am so excited to be part of this Organize Me Pretty Home Tour series hosted by the amazing Ursula from Home Made by Carmona.  She has gathered 12 talented ladies, who every day so far have inspired me to keep organizing in thoughtful ways!

Having a two year old and a three year equals constant mess, but in order for me to keep our family running as smoothly as possible, organization is key.  And I’ve noticed for me, if I can make a space pretty, I can keep it organized.  Today I will be sharing four keys areas in my home that are essential to have well organized.

Message Center:
The last space we see before heading to our cars is this Message Center. This compact zone is encompasses so many functions.  As I’m running out the door, I can easily grab keys, sunglasses, grocery lists, scarves and the out going mail. This message center is a Martha Stewart ‘customize as you need’ kit from Staples.  I simply added some paint, washi tape, a few quick vinyl decals and of course gold thumb tacks to take it from store bought vanilla to a little more personalized for our needs.

Home Station:
As in most cases, our kitchen is the center of the home.  I recently moved this buffet table from our foyer into the kitchen to hold many of our daily used items like laptops, chargers, the dog leash, our updated pencil holder, notebooks and a coffee related items.  It is so lovely to have these types of items stored close within reach.

Daily Use Craft Supplies:
Being a creative person and having a desire to spend time painting and coloring with my children, these Ikea lockers have become a god sent storage items for my daily craft supplies downstairs. I had such fun adding number decals to the fronts and love changing out items displayed on the side.

Without a doubt, we use numerous craft items from these lockers multiple times a day so when my three year old is “joyfully” asking to watercolor, knowing exactly where to go to find the materials is VERY important.

Office + Guest Room:
My last space, is by far my favorite in our home.  I just completed the update to this room about a month ago.  It previously held the leftovers from eight years of living in this home and I was tired of sending guests to stay in a cluttered, unorganized office space with a bed thrown in the middle.  Other than buying three Ikea shelves, I was determined to repurpose old items and give them a fresh feel and spend little else!
A new coat of paint on the walls and rearranging furniture was a huge first step.  I was able to create four functions within this room: my office area, a crafting zone, a printing space and an area for guests.

Many of the pieces on the shelves are projects that inspire my creativity.  But I also have many great organizing gems in this room, my geometric thread box, my chalkboard cassette case and my gold and white striped chest are just a few.

    1. You are too kind, Katie! I’m noticing if it’s pretty and I can keep my kids away… THEN I can keep it organized, ha! Guess I should add that into my post, too.

  1. Sorry I’m a day late, I had a crazy soccer weekend and am trying to catch up now. I’m so jealous of your craft supply closet and your office. Such pretty and functional organization. Have a great Sunday evening.

  2. Girl…you are orgainzied. I wish that our craft suffplies would be in one place instead of all over the place in the house..:-) Loving your craft /quest room so mcuh…to many cute little details.Hugs!

  3. Yay! I’ve been waiting so patiently to see your tour! lol So many great tips. I love your office/guest room. Are those seed packets on your black bookcase? Such a lovely contrast. And the little white desk? Did you build it? It’s gorgeous!

    1. Oh my goodness, you are too sweet! I was so worried going after your tour, you did so great. Not seed packets, but close- plant info cards from C+B last year. The white desk, used to be an odd sage green color from World Market, gave it a paint job and presto new and lovely!
