Full Studio Reveal: How a Professional Organizer Helped Transform My Space

November 30, 2020

It’s REVEAL DAY!

Getting the LISH Creative Studio organized with the help of a professional designer has been quite a journey. I’ve shared why I needed help and some early progress pics, and even more exciting transformations of the workspace as the organization project got started.

Ready to see some before-and-after pics?

Bins, bins, bins!

I’m in love with the studio space! Everything looks so much neater and organized. I credit Nikki from Neat Method Pittsburgh for her system of bins, containers, and shelves for making my mess look good!

You can see how much work we needed to do in the Before photo above. Every item that I use for my shoots needed a place to live in the studio.

Ta da! Now they do!

Here are a couple more shots and closeups of the bins and containers we used for storage.

This was before the racks went up and the bins were filled and labeled!

Done!

This space between the industrial racks on the left and my cabinets on the right was perfect for a tall storage unit and my new food and beverage prop fridge! And a rainbow sign with the LISH creative mantra, of course.

Fresh new cabinets and counter space

You might’ve seen a few sneak peeks of these spaces over on Instagram, including a before-and-after and what things looked like in the “messy middle.” Here are even more transformation pics!

You can see how Nikki made the most of the wall space between the windows in the garage with a fantastic rainbow pegboard and shelves!

Turn to the right, and you’ll see where I have even more storage for all my non-rainbow stuff, like cleaning supplies, paint cans, and camera equipment. Nothing pretty, but they’re things I still use and need to keep around!
