Office/Desk area update

Office/Desk area update

Quite a few months back my cousin had asked for my help on ideas to update her mini office/ desk area. The both of us scouring Pinterest for inspiration & ideas, she figured she wanted to keep it simple and clean black & white theme with just hints of color; more so gold metallics.

Once some planning was ironed out, I was able to get over to her place to help make it happen. With just some black vinyl & items from Target we went from…….

This……. (sorry for the dark photo)


to  AWESOMENESS!….

We just took off the cabinet doors, both top and bottom ones. Moved things around a bit and added some folders, bins, cork board frame & some cute quotes. We added vinyl to the back wall of the monitor just to add some black & white accents that she was going for. She had a cute white with black polka dot cup for her writing supplies. I made her an additional jar, for scissors, rulers etc, painted it white and dipped it in gold glitter.

These adorable little pins & clips were on clearance at Target so I couldn’t help myself.

Added these to her cork board for a little more pop and organization. Aren’t those owls too cute?!?!

Now her office space has some new life brought back to it. What do you think? Anyone recently do a mini revamp around the house? I’d love to hear stories and see pics!

Hope your still enjoying your space prima!!

DIY Friday – Bird Feeders

DIY Friday – Bird Feeders

Happy Friday Lovelies!!

Today’s DIY Friday I made with my best friend’s twin boys whom I’m baby(big boy)sitting today. 😉

My Bestie really wanted some bird feeders for her yard, and she told me about this pic she had on her Pinterest board.

Another Pinterest project!! Hehe my favorite kind of project 🙂

So while they were away I figured to do this for her with the boys; it would be a fun thing to do with them.

We each got our own can (labels already removed and cleaned out) and carefully started painting.


  
Once we covered our cans in paint we had to wait for it to dry. So we placed them in the sun though they weren’t too happy about it but understood and they were excited to go to the park while we waited.


  
These are the semi-finished products before the bird seeds go in.


Don’t these look great?!?  These munchkins did a wonderful job!

Well, enjoy the rest of your Friday Lovelies!! Hope you enjoyed our little project 🙂

Inspiration Wednesday – Game Controllers & Remote Storage

Inspiration Wednesday – Game Controllers & Remote Storage

My husband likes to unwind from a hectic workday with Video Games…….which I have no problem with except for the fact that he has every gaming system under the sun and a bazillion controllers. What to do with all this clutter?!?!?! I feel like I need to tackle the clutter in my house little by little and this is a great area to start as its where we spend the most of our day.

I saw something on one of my favorite blogger‘s page that gave me a little inspiration to clear some of the clutter on my living room side table (this is where all the remotes and controllers end up). To be honest, I’m not always an organized person but I really try to be have a hard time committing to it. I’m horrible with sticking to routine (it bores me doing the same thing day in and day out (I like to just go with it, but there are certain things like this that the mantra doesn’t apply to)). There also isn’t enough time in the day, doesn’t that always seem to be the case?!?! Here I go rambling on again……. soooooo THIS is the post that has gotten me inspired to get a handle on my mini cluttered table.

Isn’t it cute and classy chic??!! She is awesome! I bought the acrylic desktop organizer and leg hardware on Amazon. I contemplated keeping the color as is but I have been on a GOLD kick lately and spray painted mine in a different gold tone than on here…….and voila!!

He has quite a few controllers so not all of them will fit in here but they have their own charging docks which are also on the side table.

We’ll see if this works out for us……but if not I can already think of a few other spots this would look great in 😉

Are you having a similar problem??? Here are a few other inspirational ideas from Pinterest (of course)!!

Let me know of your clutter organization challenges………… any tips/ideas for me??
