Office Organization: Scrapbook & Craft Supplies

Until very recently, my scrapbook supplies were located in various places throughout the as in just this weekend :)  I finally sat down with all the drawer organizers I have collected in the past year and decided to get serious about organizing the mound of supplies I have been collecting over the years.  About six months ago, we purchased two Stuva storage dressers from Ikea and here is a sneak peek of the pretty drawers finally all organized!!

Let's step back a few days ago...last time I left you guys with a look at the daunting task at hand, for me at least.

As you can see, I already had a few drawer organizers that I purchased at Ikea, but I wasn't putting it all to good use.  After assessing all I had, I made a list of what other supplies I needed.  Luckily, I only had to purchase two extra white bins - you can see them in this picture in the top right corner.

The ones we purchased were all white...I actually didn't see these at Ikea or I probably would have purchased these.  I love the little pop of color.  Anyways, I picked up the all white for $5.99 each and they are actually in the kitchen section.  I also purchased these drawer organizers from Ikea a few months ago for only $1.99 each, also in the kitchen section.

So once I had all my drawers and bins purchased, I laid them on the floor next to all my supplies.  Then I just started sorting into each bin and slowly saw my mound on the floor disappear.

I only had three drawer organizers and although they were very inexpensive I didn't want to make another trip to Ikea.  Well I could always go to that store, but I wanted to see if I could use what I already had at home.  I had a lot of little things left, like scraps of ribbon, flower embellishments, and buttons.  So I checked the garage and I was in luck...I found some mason jars!  So I put all those little odds and end pieces into the mason jars and was super ecstatic that they fit in the drawers.  I eventually want to get circle labels for the mason jars, but I only have a scallop punch-out so that is what I used for now.

I am super happy with how the drawers turned out and now looking at the pictures, I wish I had done this sooner!!

I also added a 3-tier wire mesh rack that I purchased at Home I love that store!!!  My hubbie installed it on the side for me and then I made some labels for each bin.  The labels are temporary right now, once the office is completely organized I want to sit down and make pretty labels.

I also have big plans for the faces of the drawers.  I found this great inspiration photo from my favorite organizing blogger, I Heart Organizing.  You know I love the color gray, and I have quite a few shades in my garage just begging to partner with a paintbrush.  My next project for the office is organizing our desk, but once that is done I want to hop on painting the drawers!!

My husband and I have slowly been working on organizing the desk, so I hope to have an update on this soon.  Until then, I hope you all have a Happy Monday!!

  1. I'll have to put those drawer organizers in the list for my next Ikea visit (it's three hours away from where we live and I'm only allowed one yearly visit ;0)

    1. Hi Gaby!! I definitely feel very fortunate to live about 25 minutes away from ours, but that store is definitely addicting :)
