Get your desk organized in a bold way with some fun dripped paint storage jars!
I love to organize and have all of my things neat and tidy. I’m not saying they’re always like that, heavens no! But once I’ve taken as much chaos as I possibly can, I organize the heck out of stuff. I’m completely addicted to all things office supplies so I’m always looking for fun new ways to keep them in order. And if you’re going to organize, it might as well look fun, right?
These Dripped Paint Desk Organizers would be fun in a dorm room or a teenagers room to store office supplies. Obviously I’ll be keeping these for myself, though I may have to whip some up for my boys. Keep your most often used small supplies inside so they are within easy reach.
3 small jars (these are from Hobby Lobby)
Americana Multi-Surface Satin acrylic paint in Peach Silk, Apple Green, Pink Tropics, Night Sky, Deep Turquoise, and Cotton Ball
Remove the lid from one of the paint bottles and replace it with the Writer Tip. Hold the bottle upside down and just to the side of the upside down jar.
Begin squeezing the paint through the writer tip. As it begins to come out of the tip, move the bottle over the jar. This will cause the thin stream of paint to “drip” along the side of the jar.
I gave each paint color ~20 minutes to dry before moving on to the next to be sure that each color would stay true and not bleed into the others. I had three Writer Tips so I worked with 3 paint colors at a time. Once complete I simply removed the Tips and rinsed them well with water and allowed them to dry overnight before finishing the project the next day with the remaining 3 paint colors.
Time to fill them up with desk supplies!
