Go to work in your underwear? Sure! The best thing about having a home office is there are no rules to follow. That also means you can fix it up in your own unique way! Check out our spectacular closet makeover below. We’ll show you how we turned our messy closet into a well-organized, beautiful and fun place to store office supplies.
Closet Makeover Supplies
- Plastic Parts Chest (painted black)
- Plastic three drawer chests (set of 6 for $27)
- White Bankers Boxes
- Black Pinstriped Banker Boxes
- Sheer Curtains
- Wall Stickers of Choice (Found ours at the Dollar Store)
- Labels for plastic three drawer chest. I made these using my Silhouette cutter.
This is the before and after shot.
When we moved in, my office room was a typical closet.
Shelves were added and painted.
I keep our family files in banker boxes. The hand written labels were pretty worn.
I made some new labels and printed them on paper and glued them on. I also purchased new Bankers boxes, including some lovely black pinstriped ones.
All my office supplies had also become a mess.
I purchased a set of these wonderful black plastic drawers and labeled them using my Silhouette cuter.
I already owned a parts chest that I painted black and used for the smaller parts.
View our tutorial Organize Office Supplies with a Parts Chest here. The labels are a free printable download.
The top shelf was very high and I chose to use it mainly as a focal point. I purchased some wall labels at the local Dollar Tree.
I chose to use sheer curtains on the sides of my closet. First I tried grey. Then I switched to hot pink. What a difference!
There’s also a light with a pull chain.
