It’s a known fact that anyone with the slightest bit of OCD in their blood (that would be me) has already started some form of organization in this first week and a half into the new year!  So, for all of you, and also those who might need a little more motivation to get started, I’ve gathered a few of my favorite decorative storage solutions.  I’m sharing these as a part of Operation Organization 2017 with a few other organizationally-inclined blogger friends, which I’ll share below!

But, first, I say let’s put the fun back into functionality.  Here are a few ways I like to keep organized while keeping it pretty…

Starting in my closet, do y’all remember when I made my framed jewelry organizer waaay back when?  I still use it!  It was a super-fun project that is super functional, too.  Click here to read the original how-to.

Like many people, one of my favorite ways to keep the clutter under control is by using cute bins.  I found these at Marshall’s, and they hold my note cards, small purses, and other miscellaneous items.  I made the bottom shelf a little vanity area by adding dollar store mirrors to the back and a clear acrylic tray in front of them.




In another area of the closet, I used to have my sweaters and scarves folded on the shelves, like this…




Then I ended up finding these perfect gold striped bins to store them in, and now it’s a much neater look!



I’ve also got some hat boxes and some photo boxes that I re-styled to store some cards and letters and other small items on shelves.  Click here to see how I transformed the photo boxes into decorative storage boxes.




Also in my closet, are my wrapping supplies, and after trying to find the solution for storing my wraps for so long, I finally decided on a hamper.  Here are some cute styles to choose from if you need one too!

In Abby’s room (which we made over last year), she has a another framed jewelry organizer, plus another of my favorites:  a storage bench!  We made a slipcover for hers and posted about it here.  Click here for a great selection of other styles as well.




Another great idea for a bathroom or bedroom is this adorable framed nail polish rack.  This one is available from this Etsy seller.  So cute!




And I love this adorable way to store make-up brushes shared by this blogger.




In our living room, I’ve styled our bar cart with a fresh look for winter, but I kept the gold and white gift boxes out that I had found at Target before Christmas.



Boxes like these are perfect for storing games, DVD’s, extra magazines, and more!




And for a kitchen, I love how Ella Claire uses uniform jars on open shelving for a functional, yet beautiful system.  (Find a similar jar for this look here.)



And lastly, this totally cute laundry room from View Along the Way illustrates my point exactly:  Organization can be beautiful!  I am so loving this look!  (Find a great deal on similar baskets here.)




I hope this gives you a few ideas for your own spaces that may need a bit of organization.  For more organization inspiration, be sure to visit these other blogs sharing tips for Operation: Organization…
