Elfa Homework Station Reveal

  1. Rachel says:

    I would do something similar to this! I absolutely love it. We have 5 kiddos, and a station for all our hands-on activities would be amaaaaazing. And I love your storage files for coloring books and large document boxes for art projects. Love it all!

    • stacey says:

      We recently moved and out of my 3 kids my now 16 year old son hasn’t had his room redone. This system would be great for him for homework and a place to display all his shoes that her personally customized!

      • Shermaine says:

        I am excited to be a first time mom due in June. I would love to use the Elfa system to create much needed storage in our small nursery. I really love Elfa’s mounted closet door rack. It would be great for all those diapers and wipes we will be undoubtedly going through!

  2. Krissy says:

    I love this homework station idea! I would use an Elfa system to develop a better work-from-home space in my studio apartment.

    • Molly says:

      I would definitely use the Elfa system to create some open shelves in my kitchen remodel! I love it!

    • Jennifer says:

      Hi! I’d love to create a “cloffice” and guest bedroom space in our 3rd room in the house. We need a space for my husband to work and a room for our guest to stay.

  3. Korey Seymore says:

    Always love your feed and inspiration! I would love to get my closet/pocket office organized 🙂

  4. Joan Gillespie says:

    I would do an office in my guest room closet!

    • Angie says:

      I really want to reorganize our play/homeschool room! It has to accommodate ages 0, 2, 6, & 7! It is difficult to find a way to achieve that in a useful, pretty way

  5. Abbey says:

    I’d love to do an arts and crafts / homework station for my girls! Thank you for all of your details on yours, I’ve loved watching it come together!

  6. Alina says:

    I would love to create a desk space for one of my boys in his bedroom!

  7. Daiana says:

    Looks so good. And I love that the kids can all stay close together and help each other too. I’d do something similar in my office cause I know my kids would love to work with me. Great job!

  8. Kelly Ritter says:

    I would either add some much needed organization to my home office, or kitchen pantry & bathroom closet! ????????

  9. Sherelle says:

    A workstation that I can share with the kids! I can’t stand the clutter they leave but also don’t want to ruin their creativity! Love them all! Your blog posts are very informative and also empowers anyone to do the same :). Keep it coming Jen!

  10. Amanda Saraiva says:

    I would do a homework station too! We have a little nook in our hallway. At the moment they put cabinets in it. But I have always thought it would make an amazing home office/work space.

  11. Janae says:

    A homework station would be so nice to have with my 7 children. I love, love how this turned out… so pretty, yet functional!

  12. Diana says:

    Love this! I have been wanting to do my home office in the Elfa system and has been on my wish list. Love how everything is neat, clean, and organized while looking great.

  13. Ingrid Aries says:

    I have a closet that could really benefit from Elfa! This turned out so great!

  14. Kathy says:

    Either a home office or study station for my kids!

  15. Greta says:

    I would love to organize our master closets with the Elfa system! Funny story…the previous home owners literally put a hole in both of the side walls and rested a rod between them instead of installing a proper clothes hanger. Haven’t gotten around to fixing it yet, so I definitely have my work cut out for me!

  16. Kayla Host says:

    I would love this! We have 2 children and our son is going to be school aged this fall! So we are now starting to tackle a spot like this and I am an educator who is doing distant learning for my 25 students in MN and doing his school readiness learning. It’s been fun but I sure do realize we aren’t organized at all! I need a spot for the workbooks, kinetic sand, etc! Love this! Looks so great. I am a big follower of you! Thank you Jennifer!

  17. Jessica says:

    I love this! It’s so organized and visually appealing.
    I’ve been wanting to update my master closet to be more functional and adding shelves and drawers would definitely do that!

  18. Sarah says:

    Love the project! We have our first baby arriving in November so it would be wonderful to get the nursery organized.

  19. Mikayla says:

    I would probably create a space in our basement with our tv & organization for games, and other extra items we keep in the basement. So versatile!

  20. Katie S. says:

    I would love to create a corner desk for my space where a standard desk doesn’t fit, using the Elfa system. The area is a disaster currently, but your post gives me hope of what it could look like! Making this a goal while home with baby #3 on maternity leave.

  21. Stephanie says:

    I would build us an office space so we can have our living back! Haha working from home is not easy when your don’t have a dedicated space. I love the kids space and versatility of this system from the container store! Love that place!

  22. Heidi Becker says:

    I would love to create in our basement an office/craft area similar to what you do. A space where my husband and I can do work but also a space that we can organize craft supplies for our girls. So that all of us could have a space we can all share.

  23. Kathleen says:

    I’d definitely tackle some kitchen organization!! Oh the horror of the junk drawers!!! ????????

  24. Victoria says:

    I would love to create an educational learning area for my kiddos. It would be especially helpful with the current remote learning and hybrid schooling we are expecting next year. I love how beautiful this all is!

  25. You did such a great job with this workspace! All of the organization makes my heart so happy. And it’s also so sweet how much your kids appreciate it! Now that I think about it, the Elfa system would totally help organize my outdoor gear collection (tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, camp cookware, lanterns, headlamps, etc). It’s currently all stuffed into a hall closet at the moment, but could really use some love.

  26. Diana says:

    I would love a super small version for our daughters homework nook in her bedroom! Would help so much with all the creative creations she makes!

  27. Emily says:

    I would redo my closet with the Elfa system

  28. Hope C says:

    My office!! Working from home means I need to get myself organized!

  29. emily reinhardt says:

    I would definitely create a space to organize my daughters art and craft supplies!

  30. Melanie Howard says:

    We would totally mimic the space for my kids to be organized with homeschool. We love this idea and I really believe with a more personalized workspace the kids transition from regular school to homeschool/ distance learning would be a lot smoother than it has been. It would make for a more organized day with less distractions. All of their supplies will be in one place with a spot designated for each one of my three kids. Dreaming of an easier day for us all already ????????

  31. Jacki says:

    I would reorganize my parents pantry for them. It’s a tall, deep closet and the drawers are old and don’t open easily. The food is so hard to reach because everything gets pushed to the back. I would use the drawers on the bottom like you did and then use the 12” deep shelves to make things easier to reach. My parents are really the best and I want to give back to them and make life a little easier for my mom so I would really love this gift card!!

  32. Karen Yarnell says:

    I would like to finish organizing my home office since I am in school and teaching. I have used a few items from the Container Store and love them.
    Also, your idea of the boxes for artwork is wonderful.

  33. Las Flores Mommy says:

    I would LOVE to redo my loft space with this system! Absolutely ❤️ all your ideas & can’t wait to put mine together

  34. I would make a space like this in my grandbaby room. We are renovating the 1895 homestead of my husband’s grandpa in Iowa, and this would be a great addition!

  35. Jessica Tierney says:

    I love the homework station you created especially with all the distance learning.

    I would organize our art and craft supplies. The bins with the divided inserts and lids are game changers. Love them!!

  36. Rosa says:

    Craft storage in basement closet!

  37. Abbi says:

    I would build out our homeschool area! Something similar to what you have done here, but for just 2 kiddos! This is so beautiful! It would really help our organization so much since we’re homeschooling for the next few years!

  38. I would love love love to redo my guest room closet with this system to organize my crafts, wrapping and picture station.

  39. Shawndra says:

    This looks awesome. I’d certainly use it to organize all the toys, art supplies and learning tools for my three year olds’ playroom.

  40. Linda T says:

    A crafting station for my nieces and me!

  41. Ashley says:

    After moving I have to share a closet with my husband for the first time in years. We need to maximize every last inch of the space

    • Nicole says:

      I would love to organize my pantry! I have deep cabinets and the stuff in the back usually gets left behind. Adding some drawer baskets would help.

  42. Katie says:

    I would love to create a sewing/crochet area to keep all my crafting supplies organized!

  43. Madison Kinder says:

    I puked definitely use this system and some organization containers in my office. It is currently used as an office, sewing and craft room AND guest bedroom…. YIKES! It’s a small space that can really use some help being more organized. I would love to add a system in there like this one. You did a great job, it looks wonderful and so functional!

  44. Deanna Alspaw says:

    I would love to do a craft area like this❤️❤️ We are building a new house and it would be perfect.

  45. Kelsey says:

    I would create a new office/craft space. Something that allows for storage and room to work on any project. We have a small home and to make it work for an extended period of time, we need to make the most of every square inch. Especially if we ever need to make our guest room aka storage room 🙂 a nursery!

  46. Kathryn says:

    I am looking for ways to create an at-home office for us and the kids to use in our newly finished basement. Everything is all over the place right now

  47. Debbie says:

    I’ve been wanting to redo our home office which is also the room with my closet. This would help so much to organize the office and keep it a designated area away from closet related stuff. Also, this would help especially since my husband is at home working now too and we would love to include a little spot for our little girl as she grows.

  48. Allysa says:

    I would organize our pantry! We moved into our new home back in February, and the pantry needs some serious work. We need to maximize the space and also make it so we can see everything!

  49. Shannon Chambers says:

    I am moving into a new town house and need to organize my craft space into a closet, this would be perfect!! I know I need a combination of drawers and shelves, but the back where I can hang specific tools will be a great addition!

  50. Natalia says:

    Would love to organize my closet and my daughters closet as well! To have everything in order before I give birth in the fall

  51. Helen says:

    This is awesome! I’d love to use it in the garage to create better storage in there.

  52. Shayna forster says:

    In love with all aspects of this space! You’ve thought of it all and TCS has all the best things for organizing any space. Makes me want to go through all of my stuff and find some type of storage container for it! Thanks for bringing us all along!

  53. Heather says:

    Would love to organize my laundry room further. We installed the elfa system and love it, but didn’t complete the organization with boxes and such; I am dying to do that!

  54. Heather H. says:

    The Container Store is like an adult playground. Love seeing what you’ve done with the place and am encouraged to know that being tidy doesn’t come naturally to you either. There is hope for me yet!

  55. Ashley says:

    Love this!!!! I have four kids as well in the same age range as yours! I would organize our schoolroom/playroom with all the lovely things! I love how you made it functional AND made it look beautiful!

  56. Emily says:

    Need some serious help with organizing my overflow pantry and buffet area

  57. Patty DiVito says:

    I would love to redo our small bedroom turned office for 2 now that my husband and I both need workspace from home. The organization of the Elfa system is awesome!!

  58. Heather H. says:

    Oops, I forgot to specify what I’d do. I would organize my basement and make it much more functional and inviting. Then maybe I’d go down there to workout and do laundry more often. 😉

  59. Tiffany says:

    With all of my kids home, doing distance learning,I’d love to create an office/homework space for them. This looks perfect!

    • alexis says:

      it’s condo living for us so many of our rooms and closets have many purposes. using organization pieces from the container store would be a game changer for us! you’ve given us so much inspiration.

  60. Brie says:

    Yesss! Love this desk space and would totally put this to good use. With being home now during this crazy time I am craving organization!

  61. Lindsey says:

    I have couple spaces that need some sprucing up… Craft room for sure, and the play room. The container store does it right! You made some great design choices here!

  62. Kate says:

    Redo a laundry area with a folding station at the correct height (and a built-in, retractable ironing board which I just got), and storage for detergents etc. Would be so nice to use Elfa instead of building my own which was my original plan. Rethinking that!

    Only issue is that the track would have to be installed on a white brick wall, making mounting a bit more involved but I’ve worked with that before with my trusty hammer drill and deep anchors. So… thinking an Elfa set-up could work really well!

    • Maisy says:

      what a great idea, Kate! one side of my entire house is brick, I’m so nervous to mount anything on it, any advice? Thanks!

  63. Meagan says:

    Heaven on earth would be an organized master closet. Currently have builder grade wire racks and have been saving up for a modular system we can customize to our needs. Feeling so inspired by this post and love the potential my space has.

  64. Laura Burgess says:

    I would reorganize our playroom closet and all of the gear for my little nugget.

  65. Melani Seroogy says:

    My girls and I love arts and crafts. I also run an in home daycare! Needless to say we have stuff everywhere without it being super organized! This would finally help give everything a home!
    Love the way yours turned out!!!

  66. Jessica Tsingine says:

    My closet needs a name over but now that I have to work from home the elfa system seems like making a home office in a closet and doubling and a make up station would be so much fun.

  67. Esther Soh says:

    I’m considering this for our laundry room and also my daughter’s workspace. She already has a desk but the vertical space above it is crying for this system, especially the pegboards.

  68. Megan says:

    A school station for my kids. Would love for our school area to be that organized!

  69. Jennifer says:

    Would be so nice in the home office or to organize the backs of several doors

  70. Kaitlin says:

    An organized pantry!!! Everyone wants food all throughout the day. We dont have wall space for a homework station, but an organized pantry may just save my sanity. Love how it turned out Jen!

  71. Angela Santos says:

    With 2 kids doing distant learning and; being in the frontline as nurses, my husband and I need our own space for our online classes as well. This will be a nice addition in our huge walk in closet that is bare right now.

  72. Meghan says:

    I’ve been waiting so patiently for this post! I’d recreate this with $200! Love how it turned out. Homeschool has been hard and a little organization always makes things better.

  73. Maisy says:

    What an amazing article and great job highlighting each aspect both small and big. My husband and I just bought our first home and it’s a row-house so space/storage is quite limited. We had to get creative and used some dead space in the walls to create a coat rack by our front door and hidden storage between the studs in the kitchen for things like the broom/swiffer. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I can’t do that in every single room and because we don’t have the luxury of separating office spaces and my craft supplies, the Elfa system would solve a lot of those problems! The organization and simplicity it brings, makes us feel like we’d be at peace knowing everything has its own space and we can still move things around if we need a small change to feed our design itch. Thank you for this opportunity and love your work!

  74. Chelsea says:

    I’m in grad school and will be working/taking classes remotely this summer and next fall. I’d use the money to organize my school work and create a beautiful desk area to work from home!

  75. Martina says:

    I love it! I would organize a closet!

  76. Jamie Marabillas says:

    I would love to redo my son’s desk area in his room to allow it to transition from tween to teenager.

    • Charlotte says:

      Great article! Your directions were very precise, very clear, and doable for a beginner. We just bought an 80 year old farmhouse & honestly, I could use this system in every single room. I think pantry might be first. Followed by master closet, craft room, home office, and laundry room. ????????????

  77. Cherish Sharp says:

    We are a homeschool family and building a new house. I would use it to work on our homeschool space in the new loft. I’m so excited to get it all organized.

  78. Zainab says:

    Omg I love love love what you have done with this space! I would get a bunch of those smart store totes!! I love them so much! I’ve pretty much avoided paints, playdough, and all forms of arts and crafts because I have never been able to figure out how to organize it all effeciently! But this is it! It’s going to be life changing! Question though, I dont see those little containers you put the modeling clay in in your stories. Where do I find those?

  79. Leticia says:

    I would love to create this in our basement. Having a designated work/homework space would remove the paperwork every where else!

  80. Megan S. says:

    I need to organize my guest bedroom…..Both the closet and the actual room. It could be so clean and organized with your tips and suggestions!

  81. Maria says:

    I would love to redo the office/homeschool/guest room. So much chaos with everything going on.

  82. Alyssa Marquardt says:

    I would love to add some functionality to my closet!

  83. Allee says:

    I’d redo my RV closet that came with no organization other than a rod.

  84. Melissa Robertson says:

    I’m dying to get an Elfa system for my garage so I can start building my tools and DIY collection!

  85. Linda says:

    This looks so amazing! It is perfect for homeschooling! Totally gonna look into this!

  86. Amanda says:

    An office space for myself as we’re not sure when we’ll be heading back to school (I’m a teacher).

  87. Mandee Klukowski says:

    I would do the same thing! Such a great idea and space for the kids that is functional and looks great!

  88. Katie says:

    I would try to make it work in our playroom or office! So many possibilities with organizing!

  89. Erin says:

    Moving into a new house in August and for the first time ever we will have a pantry! No more squishing all of our food in and on top of cabinets. So excited, but want to make sure we really set it up right so that it’s extremely functional.

  90. Sarah Severson says:

    Love love this post! Planning to organize the craft and HW area for kids at my house too!

  91. Molly says:

    I LOVE the way this came out!!! I have been dying to organize my office and would greatly appreciate the opportunity to do so! I’m starting my Masters of Education program this summer and my office makes me feel uninspired…. This would help me to rejuvenate it!

  92. Emily MacGregor says:

    My office/sewing room!

  93. Jackie says:

    I would give my two sons functional closets. Right now because they are so young, everything is in a dresser. But with growing boys (and growing amounts of books and toys), we need a functional place to store everything!

  94. Tricia M says:

    I’m totally in for a kids work station!! We have our boys at a folding table, works ok, but after seeing your spot we need to upgrade! Love what you pulled together!

  95. Kara Arguello says:

    This is such a beautiful space!! My husband and I have both started working from home lately and have no home office – currently both at our kitchen table! This would be a great addition for a double home office with so many organization options!

  96. Amanda S. says:

    I have an elfa system in my master closet and would love to change it up a bit! That’s the best part – it’s totally customizable depending on your needs. This homework station is awesome! I wish I had something like this in school.

  97. Melissa Hittner says:

    I would update our disfunctional and ugly laundry room with an Elfa system!

  98. Elizabeth says:

    I would LOVE to do something like this for my craft space! Right now, I use a table and cardboard boxes as ‘storage crates’ but it is not super functional.

  99. Allison says:

    I would create wall storage and display space beside my kitchen/dining area to put out my collection of measuring cups and vintage dishes.

  100. Laura Doan says:

    I would definitely utilize the elfa system to create my own beautiful and organized crafting station! Most days there just isn’t enough time to finish projects in one sitting and I’m tired of taking over the dining room table with my mess just to have to clean it all up before dinner! This would be so helpful to organize supplies and keep things in a designated spot!

  101. Christina Bogers says:

    I would definitely upgrade and organize our Master Closet! It has some shelving in there but it is hung at awkward heights which make it impossible to hand more than one row of clothes! With my fiancé and I using it together, it really limits the space & usability!

  102. Michelle says:

    My gear closet is a disaster zone right now but Elfa would be the perfect way to organize it!

  103. JoAnn Heien says:

    I would totally work on updating my office storage situation! I don’t have room for a whole new system but I would purchase all the stylish and functional office storage pieces to keep my little business and kids craft supplies better kept! Your tutorials and style is always awesome! Love how this space turned out!

  104. Gena D says:

    I would use this in our garage loft. My husband and I are going to share the space for his area and my crafting area! This would be a huge awesome organization tool for us! It would be a perfect way to help finish off this area of our home.

  105. Jessica Versiga says:

    I should say a child’s homework station…but I’m not! ???? I want my own office / craft station just like what you did for your kiddos!!!

  106. Carina Garcia says:

    I would a set up like the one you have but unfortunately I don’t have the space for it. So I would try to work with what I have and organize it to be convenient for my kiddos 🙂

  107. Annice says:

    I love this so much!! Also, I’m a fellow diy-er and love to learn new things from you!! You have so many great tricks to make things simple! I’m PROMISE I’m not trying to butter you up, it’s the truth. Lol. My biggest organization problem is my PANTRY!!???? Plus, the boxes you showed us are AMAZING!! I have to get some of those regardless if I’m chosen. Those are just too good!!????????????

  108. Becky says:

    I’m a seamstress for work and I need a better set up, your post has me itching for a desk system like this!

  109. Ashley Hayes says:

    I love this!! I change my answer from my comment on your IG post because I think I would do a whole Elfa system for our pantry!! I would love it! Nothing would make me happier than a super organized pantry ha!

  110. Nicole says:

    I would like to reorganize my “decorating” closet/Pantry.

  111. Courtney says:

    Our boy’s den. We have so many little things thrown in drawers and I would love for them to have a proper home!

  112. Caitlin says:

    We were also thrown in to homeschooling life. We converted our office to a “school room.” I had previously looked in to getting built-ins, but they are SO pricey! With your inspiration I would totally do something like this! It would be so useful for organization, and a dedicated homework space even after the kiddos are back in school.

  113. Steph Rannings says:

    I still think my pantry is the most likely to get organized first (baby steps in organizing my life), but the kids toys need homes too! I can use all the organizing help I can get!

  114. Liz says:

    My pantry and fridge! Living in a tiny rental is hard to do anything too permanent but those spaces always need improvements.

  115. Melanee says:

    Just found out I’ll be working from home through the end of the year and likely permanent. Currently I don’t even have a desk! This would be so helpful to create my new working space that’s not so temporary!

  116. Stacey says:

    Love this, it’s gorgeous! I’d do something very similar in our new daughters room. She will need a good learning space for practicing English!

  117. Melanee says:

    I just found out I’ll be working from home through the end of the year and most likely permanently! I don’t even have a desk currently, so this system would help me create my “not so temporary” working space!

  118. Jennifer Robinson says:

    I have a hall closet that stores half bathroom and half craft supplies. I would love to get the right storage containers in there

  119. Jaci says:

    Love the homework station you made! I am moving in June so I would use the money to organize our new home!

  120. Samantha Eicher says:

    We just renovated our bedroom and I’m getting my first ever closet! I’m so excited because I’ve been living out of plastics totes for 14 years! Could really use this to purchase organization for our walk in closet!!

  121. Shannon says:

    Our guest bedroom is being converted to office/guest room to make room for a nursery 🙂 We could use Elfa to help with the transition!

  122. Laura says:

    Oh, this would be a dream come true!! I love the simplicity and the easy of changing things around as needs change. With homeschooling 5 kiddos, this would be very loved and used all day long in our home

  123. Janis Loughlin says:

    I would love to create a more beautiful and more efficient work space for my twin daughters, who are 9, to do their schoolwork…especially since schooling at home will most likely continue into the fall here in CA.

  124. Sarah says:

    This is aaaaamazing!! I would love to create a Lego station for my son to organize all those dang little pieces and give him a place to display his creations!

  125. Amber Mineni says:

    I would love to flip a wide space I have neglected while homeschooling my four kids. You should see it! I currently have two cheap white desks with cube storage housing my sewing machine on one side, and my unopened Cricut Maker on the other side. A piece of scrap bead board connects the two. All temporary, just two years temporary! ????

  126. Emily M says:

    I want to makeover my son’s desk area and add some upper shelves for his treasures and lego creations! He’s got a small space and a chair rail around the room that make it tricky but I love that the Elfa system can be customized and adjusted to fit anywhere!! I’m debating between all white or white and birch like you did here. Thanks for the inspo! Consider me INFLUENCED ????

  127. Julie Sternstein says:

    This is so inspiring. I would do a homework station for my kids.

  128. Jennifer says:

    I would probably do the exact same work space for my kids!! ????. But you know, one project I would LOVE to do using the Elfa system (I love this system, I have it in my closets and pantry) is to do a “gift wrapping station” in one of my closets. I’ve always dreamed of doing it and have just never gotten it done!

  129. Ashley says:

    I would love to make a space for me to work and an area for my kids to do crafts etc.

  130. Susan Morgan says:

    Love this idea for a shared office for my husband and me. We are like the odd couple one neat and one messy. Think this would help us both meet in the middle.

  131. Shannon says:

    So, so many papers, arts and crafts at my house with 4 kiddos. I’d also love to set up a desk/work station for my kids. I am so glad you included the length of your space for your set up.

  132. Nicole Andreacchio says:

    I would create a craft station and I would be in absolute heaven!!! (I also have 4 kids and I need to hide somewhere lol)

  133. Gretchen says:

    I would use a system like this in my eleven year old’s room. He could use a desk type of area with storage like this. Thanks for putting all the info/steps into a bog post for us!

  134. Rachel says:

    I turned my master closet into an office space and I think the elfa system would work perfect in there!

  135. Bethany says:

    You thought of everything with this homework station. It’s so inspiring and feels like a doable DIY for me. Thanks for sharing!

  136. Shelbi says:

    Home craft/office space!! We have a small room we don’t know what to do and I feel the elfa system would be ideal!

  137. Sarah says:

    Love how it turned out! So functional and an efficient use of space. The Elfa system would be perfect for our home office too!!

  138. Stephanie Feeney says:

    I would love a home office! The guest bedroom is currently setup for temporary work from home, but as the current situation persists, I’d love to make a permanent office!

  139. Melissa Ryberg says:

    Love love love this! Love that you only install the top and the design is on point.
    The accessories are beautiful organizers too! Cheers!

  140. Jessica says:

    I Love all things container store. Right now I’m working on making our basement functional. Id love to make a kids/ craft/computer desk.

  141. Moira says:

    Looks awesome and so easy! We are hoping to find a new house soon, expecting baby #2 AND seem to have endlessly growing amount of toys, craft supplies etc for my 2 year old. Would absolutely use $$ to organize the arts and craft stuff, and maybe help spruce up closet/storage options with some elfa support!

  142. Margarita says:

    Ahh love this!!! I would love to kickstart organization of my home office. It tends to be the spot that all the junk gathers ???? I could use a system to get it into shape! ????????

  143. Sia Kozlowski says:

    Love this! Would love to organize all my DIY tools and materials in a similar way!

  144. Ashley Fugate says:

    We just moved into a new house and my number 1 goal was to keep things organized! I have failed miserably. Our extra bedroom is currently a catch all. We have a four year old and 1.5 year old so nothing is safe. We need things they cannot get into! Thanks! Love watching you and your projects! Gives me inspiration 🙂

  145. Jenny Erion says:

    I would love to transform our bedroom closet.

  146. Myranda says:

    My tiny unorganized office space and maybe closet space! These rock!

  147. Sarah H says:

    Our front room closet could really use a reorg – original cedar lined deep, square coat closet that is definitely not maximizing the space ????

  148. Tamara says:

    My office ???? thanks for the giveaway

  149. Jessica H says:

    I would make a crafting station the whole family can utilize!

  150. Raisa says:

    I think this would be perfect for a closet turned office type situation. Compact, adjustable, easy to set up, and beautiful. And when you no longer need the office and you want your closet back, turn it back into a prettier and more organized closet than you started with!

  151. Lindsay says:

    I think would actually create a similar desk system. We have a wall where we planned to add built-in’s, but this could be a good first solution.

  152. Ashley Spruyt says:

    A craft station for my kids!!

  153. Karen Cole says:

    Organizers are my favorite and seeing how you make them pretty on top of functional is awesome!!

  154. Connie says:

    This is one of my favourite projects that you’ve done, looks so amazing! I need a dedicated work space for the kids so we can get our dining table back!

  155. Jen says:

    I would redo our master closet and call closet! Thanks for showing us all how easy this is.

  156. Audrey says:

    I would love to better utilize the space on my closet. We moved from a house with 3 huge, master closets to a house with one tiny one. It’s an adjustment for sure!

  157. Erin says:

    We are just about ready to start designing an office/library room and we need lots of shelving and organizing items! I love the look of the magazine holders on the shelves and think some of the elements you used would be so great in our new space.

  158. Taylor says:

    I’ve GOT to organize my one-car garage that has my laundry space. So many projects, so little space. It would be much more functional and efficient if the laundry area was organized with a legitimate system like elfa or similar

  159. Molly says:

    I would love to organize our kitchen! Specifically our spices/baking section. We just moved into our first home and are trying to stay organized to keep our sanity but it’s been a challenge with all of our other projects going on!

  160. Lory says:

    I’d love to also create a homework/craft station for my kids! Especially given the SIP orders, it would be nice to have a dedicated area that’s nice to look at and functional. Thanks for the inspiration!

  161. Honestly I would dream of a work space like that for kids like that one day! It’s gorgeous and just as functional

  162. Tawni says:

    This would be awesome to have.. 4 school aged kiddos and a new baby.. I need all the organizations help..

  163. Tali says:

    Love this! I would create a much needed home office! Right now I’m posted up at my kitchen island and it’s not workin so hot! ????

  164. Stacey says:

    I would create a beautifully organized craft station. It’s so important to be able to see what you have, so why not display it in a smart and beautiful way? The Elfa system would be perfect for this! Thank you for the inspiration!

  165. Joanna says:

    I would make an art/craft/homework station in our basement. It is just a big room with no system. Right now we use it mostly for storage.

  166. Lisa says:

    I would use it in my craft/art space that desperately needs organization.

  167. JoAnn Bahr says:

    I would love to help my daughter organize her new, very small, apartment! She is working from home a lot lately & needs some help. The ELFA system looks like it would do the job 😉

  168. Anika Collette says:

    I would organize our newly created office space! The office in the mechanical room just isn’t cutting it!

  169. Renee says:

    I would use it to organize my kitchen cabinets and under the sink!

  170. Brooke says:

    We would organize our home office since we are both working from home now and for awhile! Also my daughters playroom

  171. Brookie says:

    We would organize our home office since my husband and I are both working from home now and for at least a couple more months. Also my daughters playroom!

  172. Sarah Davis says:

    Home office/mail sorting and filing station. It’s always an issue at my house

  173. Kelsey Sconiers says:

    I knew the Elfa system was awesome for closets and pantries but I had no idea it could be so pretty for things like this homework station. I would LOVE to add some function to my master closet!

  174. Kyla says:

    I would love to extend my love of creativity and learn to sew! I have a dumping ground/office which is not very usable because of everything piled up. I would love to create a creative oasis for all things crafts and then extend out to sewing once I have the proper space! Then I would love to teach my daughter XO

  175. Amy says:

    I would love to do my closet! I have an older home with tiny closets so it would be so helpful to get an Elfa system!

  176. Alexandra says:

    I love how this turned out! The bins for craft supplies are so cool! I would totally want to tackle my pantry or my guest room/craft area!

  177. Lindsay G says:

    I would love to reorganize my pantry! Throw everything out that I currently have and start from scratch!! Would feel so good!

  178. Lauren says:

    My laundry room needs some WORK!! Seriously it’s embarrassing…

  179. Krystal Hermiz says:

    This would be a dream come true for our basement for our 3 kids! Especially now with homeschooling! Love your work and loved watching this project come to life!

  180. Kristy Didion says:

    We are currently in the process of downsizing, getting ready to sell our house and build a smaller pole barn home. This system would be so functional in so many spots in our new home. Pantry, clothes closets, desk area in living room….Thanks so much for your informative blog and instagram posts. I can’t wait to try some of your projects myself.

  181. Amanda V says:

    I’m dying to redo my closet! It needs some desperate diy organization!

  182. Trisha Rivera says:

    We have these built in book cases from
    The previous home owner that were done very sloppy… I told my husband I’d love to tear them out and do 2 desk spaces for my kiddos with shelving for school and artwork supplies etc… I would definitely do something similiar, love it!

  183. Pearl says:

    I want to make a closet office just like yours! Then our guest room would have more space.

  184. Lynne says:

    I’d call it a craft station for my 7 kids, but they’ll probably call it a lego station! ????

  185. Sarah says:

    I absolutely LOVE what you did here for your kids homework station! We recently bought a new desk for our office space since both my husband and I are WFH now and I have yet to organize the rest of the office! Love everything the container store has so will definitely be looking into getting some organizational items for there to help it all come together????

  186. Cece says:

    I would do something very similar but for one kid! Love it all! Thank you for sharing!!

  187. Krista Nielsen says:

    I would organize my office and office closet. That has turned into just piles of paper work and crafts. Your kids homework area is a dream !

  188. Leanna says:

    We just moved into a new house. Our old house had a lot of built in storage and our new house has none! ????????‍♀️ Thus, we’ve been slowly unpacking as we figure out storage solutions! ???? In fact, it there is some wasted space in the half bath and laundry room which could use storage ASAP! ????

  189. Brooke says:

    I would love to redo our tiny master closet. With all my husband’s gear and uniforms we definitely need a better system!

  190. Caitie says:

    My master closet could use some serious help!! I love this homework station! I only have a toddler now so have no use for it but it looks amazing and functional!

  191. Abby says:

    Now that I’m working from home I would definitely create a home office! I’m currently doing all of my work on the dining room table lol

  192. Penny Triezenberg says:

    You have inspired me to keep my elfa shelves and rework my office!! It needs a lot of love!

  193. Penny Triezenberg says:

    Totally didn’t get my email right before! Would definitely be redoing my office, it needs a lot of love????????

  194. Cierra Davis says:

    A bedroom homework/study area I think would be really cool!

  195. Ren says:

    My kids arts and crafts supplies. We have an IKEA cart we use with supplies but it’s impossible to keep organized with a toddler and preschooler. It’s glitter and googly eyes everywhere because when they reach in for one things the other items often topple. Help!

  196. Chancy Smith says:

    I need Elfa help in my soon to be teenage girl’s closet. It is a “reach in” closet and poor girl has no space for anything. All she sees is what is right in front of her – everything else disappears in the sides behind the wall. ????????‍♀️

  197. Jana says:

    The Pantry!!!!!

  198. Amy McDonough says:

    Such a creative way to organize! Would love to turn my spare room into a office since my Husband is working from home.
    For now he will use our tv stand as a desk. ????

  199. Ashley S says:

    Is love to get my kitchen cabinets organized! We don’t have a pantry – so our cabinets are super full!

  200. Wendy says:

    I have a basement reno going on right now. (brought on by a major water leak from somewhere??????just pulled up the last of wet carpet.) I have been following you closely as I have been making decisions. I have THE perfect space for this system to house my 2 children’s homeschool stuff. Love it. Function at its finest✅

  201. Libby says:

    My garage! It still needs so much help!!

  202. Allie says:

    A home office!! We’re working remotely for an undefined anount of time and this mama needs a more creative, productive space.

  203. Teri says:

    Toss up either a new office area for my husband or our 11 yr old would like her closet overhauled

    • Kristin says:

      I would love to do a smaller version of this work station in my daughter’s bedroom AND overhaul her closet. Maybe it would encourage her to put everything in it’s place?!????????‍♀️ It would certainly give her more space and organization for her school work and art supplies!

  204. Stacy Black says:

    Our den! I recently sold our desk because it was just a surface for junk, but now I need a place for storing old photos and files.

  205. Hillary says:

    I just built a closet under our stairs and it is an empty shell. I’d love to add some sweet Elfa organization in there!

  206. Ashley Brodd says:

    Love all this organization! My girls playroom craft table turned my office needs a little ❤️

  207. Gina says:

    I’d love to create an organized homework/activity area for my kids.

  208. Katarina says:

    Beautiful space!

  209. Kristi says:

    I have a drop off zone that needs an organization system

  210. Briana says:

    I would make a similar desk in my apartment! I’m in medical school and live with my so who works from home so it would be great to have this to as we study/work from home together!

  211. Michelle Anderson says:

    I would crest a craft closet in my home office with this system. It looks great in your house and I’m sure it’s super functional.

  212. Maureen says:

    I have a lot of options as many areas need some organization! Maybe get my husband’s work off of the dining room table? Or maybe some closet organizing?

  213. Crystal says:

    I am an Interior Architecture and Design student with a three year old, so I would use this for my actual design/ rendering /homework/ project area (a space for me since my whole house she has taken over)!

  214. Dan A says:

    I would redo our guest room which is an empty space, hopefully soon to be a child’s room

  215. Jessica Allard says:

    We are in the process of moving into our new home. I have been researching for WEEKS on how to optimize our pantry space!

  216. Oksana says:

    I would love to do a homework station for my two boys. Right now they are doing their homeschool on dinner or foldaway table. I believe that having their designated work space will improve their work habits.

  217. Jen says:

    My office/guest room/music room is an absolute disaster and in DESPERATE need of some organization! It’s also the first room you walk into from the garage, so being able to see an organized space instead of sheer chaos the moment we walk into the house would be an absolute dream!

  218. Leslie says:

    Awesome! I need to do this in my office soooo badly!

  219. Janey says:

    I am building an art business from home and currently have no dedicated studio space. I would use this system to carve out a space to work (that isn’t my dining table!) and store supplies out of reach of my toddler.

  220. Julie says:

    I would definitely do a homework station too. I may be homeschooling my kids in the fall and this would be amazing!!

  221. Elisa says:

    I would Redo my boys room! Who share a room ???? maximize space!!! ????????‍♀️

  222. Andrea Holloway says:

    I love this homework station! We have a tricky master closet that I would LOVE to take with the Elfa system. It looks incredibly simple and versatile. You did a killer job!

  223. Desi V says:

    I would redo our loft to make it a functional office/play space! Right now it’s just a space for toys that rarely gets used. There is so much potential and you are giving me so many creative ideas!

  224. Leslie P. says:

    I would add more organization to my craft space or pantry organization!

  225. Monica says:

    I would makeover my sewing and craft room with the Elfa system!

  226. Lindsay says:

    My husband’s closet! It’s a reach-in closet, and we used Elfa in a reach-in closet for our nursery 2 houses ago and loved it so much.

  227. Megan D says:

    Both your areas are awesome and inspiring. I’ve known this was an option but it always seemed overwhelming. This post helps demystify it a little! We recently moved my “office” from a spot in our unfinished basement storage room/playroom (aka concrete cave), to a corner of my daughter’s bedroom. Now that I’ve gotten her moved to another bedroom, it’s time to get an actual office setup for the first time ever. I’ve got a lot of stuff, like 3 monitors for example, so a design your own system like this is basically my knight in shining armor!

  228. Stephanie C. says:

    I would love to organize a sewing room/bunk room that we are currently building in our basement! Half of the room will be for sewing and the outer parts of the room will have murphy bunk beds for when we host our large family!

  229. Tessa B says:

    I would organize my spare room or the tack room at the horse barn!

  230. Rebekah says:

    Definitely another work station & then closets! We now have 5 people going to school & working from home! Ella is great! Used for extra hall closet storage.

  231. Sara says:

    I’d love to create my own workspace! I’m currently in that stage where I work a wherever, but that means I’m always having to pick it up and move it.

  232. Jordan says:

    I can’t wait to redo our office and hallway closet. It’s been our wedding storage room and I need to organize it all asap. Quarantine has us buying everything off our registry pre-wedding trying to organize everything while we have the time.

  233. Kids closets for sure!!

  234. Megan says:

    Would love to upgrade our arts and crafts area too! Love these ideas and the organization! Such a gorgeous space!

  235. Jet Green says:

    Totally redo our master closet! ????

  236. Lynne A says:

    I would love this in the laundry room/pantry. It’s super tiny so this would help with pantry, cleaning supplies, tools, off season coats/boots/gloves.

  237. Sarah says:

    Please! Home office/homeschool room!!! I’m DYING!

  238. Susan says:

    I would organize our playroom!

  239. Stephanie says:

    Your space is perfect! This homework station is definitely on my list but first I have an empty corner space in my kitchen that I want to put these shelves for my produce. Right now I have several containers and baskets that don’t even match al hanging out on my counter and I’d love to move them to shelves that look classy and put together purposefully.

  240. Jo says:

    Our in-progress kitchen storage! We had two huge, awkward sliding door closets in the kitchen that I’m working on converting to a cute and functional coffee nook, open pantry and recycling/trash center.

  241. Sharon says:

    I’ve lived in my house for 20 years, the majority of the time as a single mom. I’ve always wanted to have a beautiful closet system but never seemed to have the money for it. I’d definitely use the Elfa system to finally get my dream closet.

  242. Karen says:

    I love your homework station and I would love to create the same thing, a homework/craft station in an extra bedroom upstairs. If I could corral everything in one place it would feel so good. 🙂

  243. Laura says:

    Just found out my stepdaughters may need to be homeschooled by me until JANUARY. Gulp! I would definitely use the money to organize each of their work spaces – they’re so excited about their own rooms in our new house for the first time.

  244. Becky Fehrenbacher says:

    I’ve been needing to organize our office for 5 years and now that I’m working from home I am motivated. Your makeover has really inspired me and I’m so grateful you shared your space. Thank you!

  245. Judy says:

    I would do a shoe closet! ???????? My shoes still haven’t been unpacked since we moved into our home 3 years ago

  246. Ashley says:

    I am hoping to move from the hospital to working from home as a nurse. This would be great to build a small office area ????

  247. Alisha says:

    I am about to start a huge renovation project in my new (old) home and I have realized during this stay at home time that I need a real home office! I would create a home office that is functional and beautiful.

  248. Emily Harrison says:

    We would work in our garage!

  249. Courtney Ventor says:

    Love love love how this turned out! I’d love to create a space similar to this in our upstairs loft for my husband to work from home and eventually my littles to do homework! Until then a place for me to craft ????

  250. Angela says:

    I would create an actual desk area in our office space. Currently, it’s just a catch-all storage space of …. stuff! Old toys, random furniture pieces.

  251. Kelsey says:

    Definitely an area for my kids to do crafts!

  252. Michelle M. says:

    I just installed an elfa system in my master closet, it is amazing! My next task is to organize my craft closet, it is beyond a mess at the moment! ????

  253. Whitney says:

    This is incredible! Love it! I also have 4 kids and this set up seems like a winner!! I love watching your stories – you make these diy projects seem a little over-whelming!!

  254. Liz says:

    This is amazing! I would create a functional open shelving/office space in our small condo! Our first babe is due in July and our office is now a nursery 🙂

  255. Courtney says:

    Thank you for the wonderful tutorial! You made a very beautiful and organized space for your kids! My husband and I just bought our first home together and we have a lot of organizing left to do. We don’t have any furniture for our office yet (besides a few folding tables) so I would love to use an Elfa system for creating a desk space to organize our supplies. We’ve moved in 2 months ago and still haven’t unpacked our office supplies!

  256. Mayra Viramontes says:

    I want to create a workspace in our spare room. Working from home without a desk has been hard. This would make my quarantine life so much easier !!

  257. Jennifer Williamson says:

    I love your space so much, I would have to do something very similar for my craft space!

  258. Amy Lewis says:

    Definitely a work station. We have a smaller nook in our master bedroom that is perfect for it.

  259. Aimee says:

    I am trying to revamp my laundry/kitchen area and could totally use this to make laundry storage supplies a little more fun or to tidy up pantry space!

  260. Kelli says:

    This looks so amazing!!! I would love to use this in my guest closet which currently hoards all things craft, decor and present wrapping! ???? would love to get this area organized and more functional as well as still be able to be used for guests when they stay…all while looking cute of course ????

  261. Kathryn says:

    Love this! I would use a system like this to create a home office nook, since I’ll be working from home for a while!

  262. Payton says:

    I just graduated college and had to put off moving due to covid. I’d hope to put this money to use for organizing around the house once we get there!

  263. Cheryl Stewart says:

    Im going for an office/ homework space. We’re moving from almost 3,000 sq ft to a 1200 sq ft shot gun house. The house has beautiful wide hallways with beadboard and 11′ ceilings. Its the only place we can fit in some much needed function. The Elfa system would be perfect for creating an office space in that area with minimal damage to the original beadboard walls.

  264. Marissa says:

    I just moved into a new apartment and would love to create a space-saving Elfa work space in my living room! Absolutely love all the storage container ideas you’ve shared with us!

  265. Terri Grannis says:

    I would install this in my Laundry Room/Home Office space. Organization makes even small spaces so much more efficient as well as more eye appealing!! I’ve wanted to try the Elfa System so I hope I win!!!

  266. Danielle Mathews says:

    I would love to organize all of our art supplies and photos with these containers. We are moving, so it would be helpful to have something like this to keep it all together. Once we move into our dream home, I would love to create a space like this.

  267. Rachael Marker says:

    We are moving soon out of our tiny apartment and will have a nice big rec room downstairs. I would create a space similar to yours for my two preteens to do their homework and art!

  268. Meg Miller says:

    I would do a small desk area in my bedroom and get 2 main closets organized! Love the inspiration you give!

  269. Amy says:

    Thank you for writing this blog post with all the details! I loved following along in stories and watching this come together. I have an empty corner of my bedroom that is perfect for an Elfa office space. Thanks for the inspiration!

  270. We have a bonus room upstairs with a sloped ceiling, so I would use this system with low shelves and desks stretched out over a long wall for a homework/crafts area for my kiddos! I love your site and IG so much.
