Shabby Desk Organizer for Gypsy Soul Lasercuts

Yes my work table really IS a hot mess! When I read the description for the Desk Organizer 2 I knew it had to be mine...

The Organizer went together easily; I papered it with Kaisercraft Rustic Harmony and added a bit of stenciling with texture paste. The edges were painted with sage green acrylic paint then rubbed with  gold Gelato as was the border strip I attached at the top. I added a little dangly bling along the one upper edge and some fussy cut flowers on the front of the drawer.

The organizer is perfect  for my small paper pads; this way I might actually remember to USE them!! When they were hidden away it was a definite case of "out of sight-out of mind". The drawer holds a few partial pads that are in bags to contain the smaller pieces and the little jars along the top (which I papered to match) hold various fibers and twines.

Now whether I actually get more organized remains to be seen but at least I have some great-looking storage pieces on my worktable (I have the Desk Organizer 1 and the Brush Caddy as well) Even if your scraproom is super-tidy this is a great piece to have and is also fun to decorate!
