Desk Organizer

I work from home, so my office is in my living room. I love it because I can be with my daughter while I work, but having all my business stuff in our living area isn’t always pretty. I have been trying to make it both functional and beautiful. I recently¬† got a desk that is big enough for both of us (YAY!), so my daughter can do schoolwork or coloring next to me. Then I found this great organizer on clearance at Target.

I hit up my craft stash in the basement. I found some great fabric I bought years ago to make pillows and thought it might dress this plain organizer up.

I set the organizer on the fabric to measure the right size and used hot glue to attach it inside the biggest compartment, from the back.

Then I wrapped the fabric around the back, underneath and pulled it tight.

I cut lines in the fabric so it would fit in the separated front compartment, then hot glued it in place.

I did the same thing on the sides, cutting it to the right height for each level.

I LOVE the finished product! It adds color and life to the desk and keeps everything I use often at my fingertips. It is even big enough for my binder!
