Today I’m getting a sneak peek of the new Container Store in Glendale – it opens to the public this weekend. This is not a sponsored post, but rather a total coincidence that I just bought a ton of acrylic office organization.
My sudden urge to reorganize was after working on Bella Lily Bridal and itching for my space to get a little facelift.
Those two tins on the left are from France, swoon. Picked them up at a confectionary and one at the airport on my way back to the states. When I get to travel I like bringing back things I can use every day so I can think of my memories more often!
I read somewhere that clear objects make spaces look bigger – hence the rise in popularity with acrylic console tables, coffee tables and the like for studio apartments. This white shelf was a former filing cabinet, black, from JCPenney years ago.
It broke, I kept the frame, painted it, then I added two more shelves. Home Depot cuts boards to any dimension you ask!
For those who live in Central Phoenix like myself, the rumor has been put to rest – a Container Store is opening in the Trader Joe’s/Whole Foods shopping center! And Central Phoenix organization obsessed lovers rejoiced.
You like my desk raiser? My desk belonged to my dad when he was a child and it was an icky brown with wood laminate on top. I fixed it, but back then the 30″ height wasn’t as common, or my legs are too long. I went to Home Depot and asked them to cut down a wood rod then brought it home and used my handy tools to make an impression so the table legs wouldn’t slip. If I had more muscle I’d be building a house I tell ya.
Are you an Amazon lover? Prime subscription has me getting packages non-stop. I bought this pocket wall to keep my gifts and things in order.
I love acrylic organization, I have them in my bathroom too, see post here. I used to be an organized hoarder, but I’m trying to get better. The good thing about having a smaller home is you can’t hold as much stuff!
