Organizing My Mom's Home Office

Hello All!  A little while back I organized my mom's home office for her. It took a few days of her and I working side by side, but we got if finished and she is loving the newly organized office.

Before I show you all of the after photo's, I want to first share all the BEFORE photo's:

 I forgot to snap photo's before I actually starting removing items from the room
(I tend to get so "into" it, I forget to take the before photos.)

You can see that I had already started bringing items out into the hallway.

 Now that you have seen where it all started, Check out all the AFTER photo's:


 My dad had a little extra peg board kicking around, so I asked him to pop it up onto the wall.

 The peg board holds a lot of items...
 ... getting as much off the desk as possible.

I stole this large piece of artwork from my parents bedroom.  It fits really well above the storage units and brings a little height to the that side of the room (which is what that space needed.)
 Baskets hold software & software manuals, cardstock paper,
 envelopes & another basket holds labels.

and now for all the before and after side by side photo's:
and that's it!  My mom's office organized.  I've slowly been getting more and more of my parents home organized.  If you missed any of the other areas that I did at their place, you can find the links below:
and I made this DIY Photo Wall at their place too.

That's it for today.  Have a truly Blessed and productive day!

May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,

Organizing the Garage (Paint & Paint Supplies)

Hey all!  If you're following along with the monthly organization challenge for 2013 here on Delightful Order, then that means you are working on your garage during the month of July.

Today I'm showing you how I organize my paint & paint supplies in my garage.
 I hung peg board to hold all of the supplies.

 It's in a little closet in my garage.

 the shelf under the peg board holds more supplies.
 inside the blue bin are all my painting cloths (I mostly use old sheets)

In the back of the closet, I had my hubby build a few shelves to store the paint cans.
 and labeled them.

The smaller quart size cans are in clear bins.
organized by paint colors.
and the bottom shelf holds my spray paints. 
 That's it!  My paint and supplies all organized and easy to get to.

If you want to see how I organize my paint swatches, you can view that post HERE.

How about you? Are your paint cans & supplies organized and easy to get to?

May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,

DIY Photo Wall

Hello!  Back in April I spent some time at my parents home.  I organized my mom's office (I'll show you that in another post) and my dad and I created this awesome photo wall for my mom to display all of her wedding & graduation invitations, photo's, thank you cards, etc.

Today, I'm going to show you how to make one for yourself.  Super easy & super cute!!

I L.O.V.E how it turned out! Isn't it just adorable?

Here's the how to:
1. you need screw eyes
2. you need four - 1 x 2 boards (paint them if you'd like) (cut to desired lengths to make a frame)
3 & 4. measure and screw the screw eyes into the side boards
5 & 6. pin nail the boards to the wall to create the frame.
After that, simply string one long continuous ribbon (I used jute from Walmart) through the screw eyes and tie the ends.

then hang all those invitations, photo's etc. with small clothespins (also at Walmart)
little binder clips work as well.
My mom has this piece of furniture right underneath...

...which is perfect to hold the clothespins and binder clips.
There you have it, an awesome DIY Photo Wall! 

I think I may need to make one of these for my own home.

May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,
