Office: Sewing Closet + Paint Chip Memo Board

This sewing closet has been in the works for over a year.  It's still very much in progress, but some recent cleaning up and reorganizing has made it more functional and better looking than it's ever been!
Old Sewing Machine Table Base- hocked from my parents barn long ago (catch a glimpse of it in this post as an end table)
Grey Stool- junk shop find, doubles as a small side table for the couch
Pegboard- built by David, painted and stenciled by me
Galvanized metal buckets- Ikea, Socker, with holes drilled so they hang
White Storage Boxes- Ikea, Kassett
Task Lamp- Target
Craft Supply Organizer- basic over-the-door shoe holder
Clothespin Chalkboard Markers- The Plaid Barn
Clear Pocket (on left door)- Staples by Martha Stewart
Many of these items have almost ended up in the Goodwill box more than once because they didn't fit my vision of ideal organization.  Namely, that shoe holder.  But it has turned out to be absolutely perfect for the space.  This closet is truly a testament to finding the perfect items by shopping your house!
Also, after seeing this paint chip memo board on Burlap & Lace and Cindy's version from So the Cook Said, I decided to jump on the bandwagon.  Cuz, seriously- $4!  I used a little glue and some Velcro to attach a dry erase marker to the bottom of the frame.  It's turning out to be super-convenient and worth way more than four bucks.
Hope y'all are having a happy Wednesday!


  1. Lovely! I'm rethinking my memo board. Already wanting to change up the colors!

  2. SUPER impressed! Everything looks great - love the organization and the memo board is priceless!
