Organized Sublime

A fresh new year is right around the corner, and you know what that means, right?  Time to get organized!  There really is no better time to do it, except maybe the few weeks right before the new year, because then you can roll smugly into the new year feeling completely on top of your game.  Of course, this never ever happens to me thanks to all the holiday hoopla and the laying around eating fudge that occurs during this time, but it’s a nice idea.

Here are some ideas if you want to get a jumpstart on organizing your life in 2014.

You could find a sad looking organizer like Jen at Girl in the Garage did, and fix it up pretty with scrapbook paper.  Perfect for storing your small things!

Have bigger things?  Here’s one from Jesse at Nine Red,who made over this card catalog cabinet with white, gold and varying shades of blue.  The whole entryway looks refreshed.

Need a place to store your decoratively rolled sheet music?  I thought you’d never ask.  Here’s a lovely solution from Amanda at One Girl in Pink. (I know, I know, it’s meant for mail!)

And if your New Year’s resolution is to stop losing your keys and/or creating a place to hold memos and other paperphanelia, (just made that word up) (just Googled it and realized it’s already a giftshop in Kentucky, dangit!), then you might be inspired by Jennifer’s bulletin board makeover.

She was inspired by a $259 version from Pottery Barn. Her’s cost $15.  Win!  See more at Decorated Chaos.

  1. I’ll give you credit for paperphenalia. I need that word in my life.

  2. Haha, I’ll take it! :)

  3. I love the first one! Wishing I hadn’t sold something at my garage sale last month now…..so cute with the paper inserts! Wouldn’t a Christmas one be great with the fronts of Christmas cards and/or Christmas paper? …For tape and gift tags and ornament hangers and extra bulbs for the lights and batteries and the possibilities are endless…

  4. Thanks, Jen! I have one of those that could use an up-date! And great idea, Cindy, for thinking of a holiday-themed catchall! I might just have to do that myself! I wish that I had a card catalog to re-do but I’m still on the hunt for one. When I do, Jesse’s file transformation will do just fine, thank you!

  5. Great makeovers today Lins! If I was a creepy psychopath type person with a creepy basement to match my personality I would probably kidnap Jesse and have Jesse do furniture makeovers for me almost like a sweat shop factory along with making me amazing nail art. Of course I would give Jesse milk and cookies as compensation for the work along with maybe an occasional call to a family member.

  6. Haha, you sound like you’d be a really nice psychopath!

  7. Ooh, that is a great idea!

  8. Thank you for sharing my organizer, Lindsey! You’re such a sweet gal. ;) Hope you and your family have a fabulous holiday!

  9. Love these!!!!
