DIY Desk Holder

DIY Desk Holder

Hey everyone! As many of you know, I have been re-doing my craft/work area and was in need of some organization.

(And tomorrow you will see what DIY I did with my cork board to help solve this problem as well!)

I’ve had this shoebox lid for a while (after I did this craft) and didn’t know what to do with it, but was also not willing to throw it away.

So, I made my own little desk organizer! It’s currently holding paint bottles, but other times it holds keys, screws and nails – because who wants those loose right??

Let’s get started!

You will need:

Simple right?

First, put paint into the shoebox – I used DecoArt’s Royal Purple and White Wash. (I just put it right in there, no use of washing another paint holder thingy!)

Then, paint the inside – after that dries be sure to do a double coat and be sure to paint the edges on all sides! You will want your brush strokes to be straight – otherwise it will end up looking kinda funky – I had to put another layer on top of this one that was straight because I messed up and it looked really bad!!

After that is totally dry, put it on your desk and voila! You have a super awesome desk holder!

I love it – it’s especially useful when I am using a drill and I don’t want my screws to be all over my table to roll off!

Doesn’t it look great??? I love the purple color and it’s soooo useful!

Be sure to come to the blog tomorrow to see my DIY Corkboard!!
