Disney Office Transformation
This post contains affiliate links.
As many of you know, I recently moved into a new home I’m renting. Fortunately at our new place we could paint the cabinets in an add-on room that is part of the house, which I dreamt of turning into my office, which doubles as where I do my photos and content creation. Even though this room wasn’t the prettiest in the house I wanted it for my office since it’s right by a sliding glass door that leads to the outside (which means lots of natural light, ideal for photos). Below is a picture of what my future office looked like when we moved in:
I knew for a Disney-filled background I wanted to be able to display my Disney books and some of my Disney antiques and other special collectibles. So some of the cabinet drawers came off so I had that display space. Most of them came off actually, keeping some doors on of course for storage for items I sell on Poshmark, items I have on my to-do list to shoot content for, and other office supplies. Then, it was time to paint these natural wood and burgundy cabinets white for a fresh, clean look.
Next, it was time to put some of my favorite Disney antiques, such as my Mickey & Minnie Aladdin lunchboxes, a Pluto telephone, a 1995 Polly Pocket Disneyland set make up the vintage items. I also included a Minnie Mouse popcorn bucket from 2019, a D23 2019 member gift pin set, and a Disneyland castle playset from shopDisney, which you can find here. I also placed lots of my favorite Disney coffee table books on the shelves as well. There are of course some empty shelves, as I want to still be able to be on the hunt for additional Disney treasures over the next few months to add to it!
For the cabinets to the right, the cabinets were removed from the top half to display some more antiques or other meaningful Disney knick-knacks. On the countertop, I displayed my Frozen 18″ collectible dolls that were too tall for the shelves, as well as my Frozen on Broadway framed Playbill to make a whole Frozen area (one of my favorite Disney movies).
Then in the blank space to the left of the tall vertical cabinets, I purchased this clothes rack from Amazon to display seasonal clothes. I thought this would be fun to use my clothes as added decor in my workspace, changing them depending on the season. Plus will be great to use to create different reels on Instagram or as a background for photos and videos.
For my desk, I want to eventually get frames and hang up Disney artwork I have above it. On the desk (which I got from IKEA several years ago) I added a stand-up desk converter. I also have a Tiana and Naveen collector’s doll I got at Disney Store five years ago. I added a Hunny pot Scentsy (I am actually pretty Scentsy obsessed, here is a link to the Scentsy consultant I purchase from, she’s great). I also put a “If You Can Dream It You Can Do It” placard for added inspiration throughout my workday which you can get here from shopDisney.
Below is the full view of my Disney office transformation! I was really nervous that maybe my vision for my dream office wouldn’t end up looking as I hoped, but it is exactly what I pictured and I absolutely love it!
