desk makeover

my desk became unruly. so i tamed it. 
before: held my books, random papers, and a lot of junk under it
after: jewelry station and laptop holder

before: catch-all bins for anything and everything
after: organized bins with jewelry supplies

before: had a bunch of random papers, envelopes, etc.
after: jewelry supplies and sticky notes

before: ugly chaos
after: beautiful organization

i die for this organizer. $19.99 from t.j. maxx. that’s just how i roll.

anthro pencils, jar from furbish studio, candle from francesca’s
now i actually look forward to sitting at my desk 🙂

    I have the same grey organizer from Target and the notepad, but with a B on it. TJ Maxx rocks! I honestly have been trying to figure out where to put my printer because it was dominating my desk. I never thought to place it on the floor! Thanks for the ideas. Everything looks so neat and organized.

  12. Ahh. Isn't it SUCH a good feeling to get something clean and organized? You can't really get someone else to do it for you. Just gotta tackle it. I feel like that with my inbox. :/

    I need to tame my mud room which also serves as a craft closet and husband's hobby closet. It's a MESS.
