These dressed up desk organizers are perfect for adult AND kid desks!
Did you guys see those fun little lazy Susan organizers in the Target Dollar Spot? I thought they were an amazing bargain for $3 each! I snatched a couple up right away with big plans for them and finally found the time to get them all dressed up.
I bought one for myself and my craft desk and one for my kids and their craft desk and decorated them appropriately. Can you tell who’s is who??
My theory is you can never have enough organization. And when you can customize it it’s even better!
This is the organizer I picked out for myself in all it’s 6 slots of spinning glory. I chose white because I planned on painting it.
I spray painted the entire organizer with a couple of coats of Krylon ColorMaster Gold Metallic spray paint.
To decorate the sides, I cut patterned scrapbook paper to size. Decoupage on then top with a coat of high gloss decoupage for a more polished look.
Fill with your favorite desk supplies and you’re all set!
I decorated this green organizer for my little boys. It has superhero-themed scrapbook paper decoupaged to the size, and I spray paint the little ball in the center a glossy red.
It’s filled with ALL of their crayon stash. I figure this is perfect for their little desk. The crayons they need will be easy to find AND easy to put back away. And if you have little boys, you know cleaning up after themselves only happens under magical circumstances!
I added some cute little sticker labels to the sides of my organizer for a little extra oomph.
These were so fun and easy to dress up! If I can find some more I think I’ll grab them and make teacher gifts out of them. Wouldn’t that be fun?
