Home Office Reveal ~ Awesome Efficiency in a Little Space
My home office reveal is finally here to dazzle and amaze. Yes, it’s been a long time coming, but the reveal is so worth the wait.
I’ve been teasing you with bits and pieces and photos here and there, but now I’m going to show you the big enchilada (That’s a Texas saying.), the whole ball of wax. This home office reveal is not big, but it’s mighty.
My home office reveal is so awesome that its small size doesn’t matter. I’m so happy just to stand in its pretty pink efficiency.
Can I hear a “Are you ready to see your fixer~upper?” I don’t have a huge billboard to pull apart for you, but this home office reveal is ready to go.
Home Office Reveal ~ Awesome Efficiency in a Little Space
For the first time, I’ve made a video for the blog. Here goes.
And now here’s my home office reveal. At the bottom of the reveal, I’ve shared more links to earlier posts about all the plans, construction and decorative elements of the office.
Remember that this office is small ~only about 60 square feet. Starting on the right of the office is my Elfa wall unit from The Container Store which holds spray paints and other paint jars. I love that it’s out of the way but holds so much.
On the counter is a file folder cube from Michael’s. I made the gold polka dot planter and the beautiful pink peonies are from Pier 1. The bowl that I found at a flea markets holds chargers.
Below the counter is the first of 2 Ikea rolling carts in the office. This one holds office supplies, extra paper, my camera, and extra lens. I also have a printer cart for the printer and extra paper. Out of the way, but easily accessible.
Speaking of counters: these laminate counters from Ikea are 36 inches off the floor. I like to stand when I’m working so counter height works best for me.
Next to the file cube is the wall with my photo station. When I need to use it, I just move the tissue holder and bowl holding chargers over to the side.
And you can see the beautiful Aspect Peel and Stick Tiles that I installed on the back wall. The tissue holder is a DIY and the Lucite stand was a DIY from Haven 2015 that I added a vinyl monogram to.
Even a home office reveal needs decorative items.
I love the French looking clock that I found in Atlanta last summer. I used scrapbook paper to make mats for the printables. My graphic designer made the mood boards for my original blog name which I framed.
Next are my floating shelves from Lowe’s. The faux chrysanthemums in the galvanized tub are also from Pier 1.
Above my work station is “My Happy Place” from the DIY charm packet challenge with Karianne at Thistlewood Farm and a burlap print from my daughters with the grandkids’ names and birthdates.
This is my craft area. The wall storage unit is from The Container Store. I have so much room for DIY and crafts since all my supplies are either on the wall storage or in the Ikea rolling cart below the counter. You can see the cute pen holders that I made using washi tape.
Below the craft area counter is the 2nd rolling cart which holds craft supplies. A wire basket from Ikea holds gift wrap for photo backdrops and sometimes, for wrapping gifts.
The Billy bookcases from Ikea hold magazines, binders with recipes, books, baskets and boxes for storage. And here you can see the beautiful Shaw floors that I chose for the office floor.
My dry erase calendar finally has a home. I use it as an editorial calendar for posts. I made the mats for the printables from more craft paper. On the side of the bookcases are 3 painted DIY clip boards for worksheets that I print.
Here are links to the construction of the office from beginning to today’s home office reveal ~ grab your glass of iced tea and sit a spell.

A Vision for My Office ~ Creating a Mood Board
I hope you enjoy my home office reveal. It’s fun finally sharing the completed space with you. Hopefully, you can use some of my office storage and design ideas for your own space.
Whenever you read a post on Bluesky at Home, imagine me sitting at my desk creating ~ just for you.
So organized! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!
Happy to come to the party.
Wow, Carol, your office is jammed packed with great ideas. I will be studying it later and reading your other posts about planning. We have an office that would be given a F- for efficiency.
I enjoyed your video.
Bonnie, I’m so glad that you liked it. All it takes is some planning, research (hopefully, I’ve done most of that for you.), and vision. Good luck. I bet you can be an A student!
Oh my goodness, I could be a very happy gal in this beautiful crafting space! Visiting from your feature at Celebrate and Decorate. Pinning.
Maria, thanks so much for visiting. I know I’ve seen your site.
Love your home office and that sign is still one of my favorites!
Thanks for the shout out!
Karianne, I was happy to do it. I still love that sign, too. I look at it everyday, multiple times since it’s right above my Mac. Thanks for the inspiration, as always.
Your office is so lovely. What a great place to create.
Thanks for sharing at Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop. Hope you come back next week so I can stop by again.
I’ll be back. I really appreciate your comment and invitation.
This new space is beautiful and loved your video. You took a small space and made is so functional. Love that! Thanks for sharing all these helpful tips for creating an efficient space. Awesome Job!
Thank you so much. Do you think I’ll be up for an Oscar? Glad you liked the tips and that you can use them.
Wow! This is all so amazing, and pretty, too! I need to get to work on the organizing part! I was so happy to get my room painted last week…also a pink, but very pale. I love the wall unit for organizing all the “stuff”. I think I will be referring back to this as I go forward with my space! Thanks for sharing at Celebrate Your Story!
Organizing “stuff” is so important because it’s the “stuff” that overwhelms us. So glad to be sharing at your party and thanks for the “high click” award.
You did a knock out job in color, design, and function.
Thanks so much. I really appreciate your feedback.
What a beautiful room to call all your own, Carol! I wish I had a place for pink, but at this point it’s not going to probably happen.
Carol, thanks so much for visiting. The reason I could use such a bright pink is that my office is so separate from all the other rooms. Good think all around.
Carol, I am so envious of your beautiful office. What an awesome space! You have done a wonderful job. I love the pretty pink color palette and all of the great storage ideas you have shared. What a lovely space to work and create!
Shannon, thanks for your sweet compliments. I can’t what a difference having my own space has made in my work efficiency. No distractions, although I do miss watching HGTV or Fox News while blogging.
Your office space is awesome with all your organization units. I see lots of ideas for organizing my work spaces.
Judith, I hoped my space would be an inspiration for others’ spaces. Play it forward!
Nice job, Carol. It looks terrific — airy and pretty as well as functional!
I love your Happy Place! 💕
Thanks so much Kyle.
Love your little bit of heaven in such a little space!
Thanks sweet friend. Can’t wait to see your new home.
Carol, this is a power packed and beautiful space! I love the pink and all of the ways that you chose to make the space work for you. Smart girl!
Stacey, thanks so much for the compliments. You are planning an office in your new home, aren’t you?
