Do you work from home? Most of us don’t have a dedicated room to call a home office but instead it’s more like a desk tucked in to a corner of a room. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful, practical work space. When space is limited, it helps to be organised with your desk space. Otherwise you end up wasting hours looking for things. So frustrating. The most important trick to being tidy is to have a dedicated space for everything, no matter how small your space is.
If your desk space is looking a little overcrowded and busy, I’ve got some clever DIY’s that will help you get organised very quickly. There are lots of ideas to pick from and they are especially useful in small spaces. As always, I love stylish design but it’s also got to be useful. These 8 DIY desk organization ideas will make your desk space more beautiful, all while making your life a little easier and more organised:
Every desk needs somewhere to keep all your stationery and bits. I’m loving this DIY desk organizer for desk storage. I especially like this one as you can customise it to your needs and it takes up very little room on your desk.
Do you make lists for everything? Here’s a clever DIY wall notepad to keep your ‘to do’ list visible all the time and it makes a pretty wall feature too. Not only do you have space to write your daily tasks, but the chalkboard bit is great for writing daily appointments.
I can never remember the day or date. If you’re the same, problem solved with this DIY photo calendar. You can use nature photos like in this calendar or I would be tempted to have family photos. A little eye candy for your home office thats very useful too. (source unknown).
This DIY wood and glass desktop noticeboard is handy in so many ways. The glass bit is perfect to write reminders with non-permanent pen which can easily be wiped clean and the wooden bit is great place to keep some inspiration or any other bits of paper you have floating around.
It’s handy to have little dishes to keep little things like paper clips, tape, glue, pintacks and other bits and pieces. These DIY stone effect dishes are perfect for that. Not only will they look stylish on your desk but you’ll never spend ages trying to find a paper clip again.
If your desk is very small and can just about hold your computer and not much else, this DIY hanging desk organizer is for you. It cleverly combines a notepad, pin board and storage all in one.
Every desk needs some notebooks to quickly write down all those great ideas that come flying in to our heads, before they disappear. Why not make these copper and marble notebooks to complement your updated stylish and super organised new work space.
Lastly, if you’re in need of a new desk or a desk update, don’t buy one. Instead make this beautiful DIY wooden desk with hairpin legs. You can easily customise it to fit your space, no matter small.
