18 Reader Spaces: October Link Party Awesomeness!

Yesterday I kicked off the monthly organizing link party so you all could share with me and the rest of the blog community, all of the organizing goodness that you took on during the month of October.  Today, I am grinning cheek to cheek because I just spent many super happy hours checking out all you did in September.


It is fairly safe to say that this time of the month puts me in the best mood.  I get to ooh and ahh at over 250 organizing posts!  It is like Christmas morning month after month.

What I love most about popping in on all of the links, is the variety of posts I come across!  Big and small, you conquered it all!  And these are real projects done by real people in real homes.  It doesn't get better than that!

I thought it would be fun to do a little room by room inspiration.  And Deme starts things off with a bang!  Check out her absolutely gorgeous kitchen space!  Isn't that backsplash to die for?!  And I adore the combination of open and concealed storage.

One of the questions receive frequently, is how to create an entry when your home has none.  I can't get over how much functionality Steph packed into one itty bitty corner space.

If you love to coupon and use the special store cards, Sarah's "shopper" wallet seems to be the perfect solution for organizing it all!

For those striving to have a neat and tidy purse, you can easily sew up some clear purse pouches!  The talented Megan shares a step by step tutorial over on her blog!

Off to the living/media room we will go!  Have you ditched all of the movie cases for a less-is-more effect, like my gal pal Cassie did?

Office organization is always a huge focus around the blogosphere.  It makes sense as our workspaces should be happy spaces and much of our lives revolved around paperwork and crafting.

Jackie added a sweet little command center in a corner of her kitchen/mudroom.  And you have got to see the before photo of her filing cart.  She did an amazing job giving it new life!

Gaby recovered her hubby's shirt boxes to give herself beautiful paper storage within her home office.  Don't these boxes look so incredibly professional?

Megan did the same, only she used the superfab gift wrap from Rifle Paper Co. to cover her magazine holders.  Seriously, people would pay a large chunk-o-change for those beauties!

If you are a label lover like I am, you will totally swoon for these craft labels done by Laura Jane.

Kids appreciate a great place to get creative and study as well.  And I appreciate sweet kid nooks.  Morgan created a darling little area for her kiddos which includes a workspace and wall storage galore!

{via}


Expedit bookcases and toys go together like peas and carrots.  Kristin pieced together three units to create amazing storage and seating for her little ladies.

Samantha was working on organizing her bathroom's last month, and she selected the perfect piece from Pottery Barn to get the job done.  This vertical storage is beyond stunning.

{via}


I honestly wrestle with folding sheets.  I am a complete disaster trying to get them all perfect with sharp corners.  I love being able to tuck them away inside of drawers within our bedroom without working about perfection.  Samantha, however, has another great solution for keeping her linen closet neat and tidy, which includes these fantastic shelving dividers!

{via}


Little girls need a lot of good storage to organize all things pink.  The darling Leah really did it all right for her little love.  Over the door pocket storage, double hanging rods and labels galore!


{via}


Never look at a product and take it for face value.  This belt and tie holder also functions big as a jewelry organizer!

{via}


Standard storage bins which are typically used for storing hand-me-downs and seasonal wear, become versatile and even more functional with the addition of a little chalkboard paint.

{via}


Not all laundry rooms are created equal.  Some have built in storage and sorters, and others require a little more creativity.  Rachel maximized her wall space with this super smart DIY wall sorting solution!

See!  What did I say?  Didn't y'all do a stellar job?  If you have a few extra hours days, head on over to the link party to see so much more awesomeness.

Now that October has come to an end, what do you have up your sleeves for November?  Any fun projects in the works that you are uber excited about?

  2. I got rid of all my DVD cases this past summer. Now, instead of dominating a whole wall of my (small) living room, they are all tucked away in two pretty boxes under the TV. I couldn't be happier with it.

  14. Chalkboard paint on the storage bins - why didn't I think of that?! For years I've been so frustrated at labels falling off. Perfect solution!

    ReplyDelete
  15. For a similar option, you can also find chalkboard vinyl contact paper at most hardware stores.

    No messing with paint, just peel and stick. When you want to remove it, the vinyl peels right off without damaging surfaces. Can you tell I love the stuff? Lol

  16. I only have one bin that size for our seasonal clothing..I change them from one summer to winter and put them back. Hate that job, as the bin is heavy and bulky to deal with. Certainly isn't from clothing!

  17. That Jen is an absolute genius! She always comes up with the best organizing and decorating ideas. Wished she lived close to me, I'd hire her in a flash to organize and decorate my home! Not only is she creative, but she's a beauty!
