Maybe we should start with an idea of what we started with before. The pictures below are from a few years ago when we first re-did the space of my middle daughter. It just was not functional anymore and really lacked adequate storage. Plus a more grown up look was really needed in this space.
My daughter will be headed off to college soon and we really needed modular storage that could be reconfigured based on the space. I found the perfect solution with the Better Homes and Gardens products at Walmart. We started with the following:
- Better Homes and Gardens Cube Organizer Desk
- Better Homes and Gardens 4-Cube Organizer
- Better Homes and Gardens Collapsible Fabric Storage Cube
We have several of the cube organizers around our home so I already knew that they were perfect for this area. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the desk however. It even has a place in the back to thread through any cords so you don’t see them! We are absolutely in love with this desk!
My daughter added her things into the cubes and even had a few open spaces for decor.
We used the fabric storage cubes in teal diamond. They come in so many colors that you can definitely find one that will work in your space.
I ordered a new desk chair online that worked in the space as well.
Above the desk we added a clock along with a DIY acrylic calendar. The string art was made with some scrap plywood. The canvas is a from Hobby Lobby and you actually color it yourself which is really fun!
Speaking of coloring, my daughter loves the new adult coloring trend so two of the cubes are dedicated to her supplies. I love the fact that everything looks so organized!
The top of the desk was much larger than we expected! It is perfect for a few more organizers that hold different office supplies.
Some of the cubes on the opposite side just hold decorative items. It is nice to end up with a few cubes that hold just a few items. It makes the entire organized desk area look uncluttered and open.
We also added a new rug to this space that I ordered online.
We are going with a blue and yellow theme to the entire room. Y’all stay tuned as we will reveal everything soon!
Until then, my daughter will be enjoying her new organized desk area. I will be loving the fact that this modular storage will work in a college dorm or apartment. I love the fact that it can be configured to fit any space and make it organized!
