When I bought my new desk from Ikea a few months back, I was uber excited to have drawers to keep my things in.
I imagined all of the possibilities to organize each desk drawer, and make them look like every crafter’s dream–beautiful, and chic, with every crafting supply easily visible.
Cut to two weeks later and I couldn’t find a single thing in those drawers. Turns out, having drawers at your desk makes it really easy to “clean up” when you can just slide everything that doesn’t have a place, in those drawers.
Those unorganized desk drawers that I had once imagined to be neat, tidy and beautiful, were driving me insane! Until one day, I just decided to empty them out and start from scratch…again.
This time I gathered up my arsenal of supplies that I foraged from my craft supplies, basket stash, and–recycle bin.
Yep, you read that right.
I used contact paper, rectangular baskets that weren’t serving another purpose, and miscellaneous containers I rescued from the trash (cleaned of course) to organize each and every drawer. Now it’s much easier to find exactly what I’m looking for, since when I open the drawers, everything is easily visible.
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
What things do you use to organize your desk drawers?
