3 Months ago I got a new desk in my room. I love it. My dad and I kind of made it together. He painted a door white for me and added molding around the edges for a finished off look. I ordered the side pieces from Ikea and voila--a large workspace for around $85.00
|you'll have to excuse the wires. I know they don't make for a pretty picture, but I moved the chair so you could see the full size of the desk.|
I don't think you could beat that in the stores. You'd spend at least that if not more for a workspace this size.
With the open shelving at the bottom I had to make sure it was kept clean and organized. I purchased the 2 brown baskets at Michael's, and the 2 clear plastic containers at Dollar General. The clear plastic containers were perfect for storing my printer paper and cardstock paper. BUT they needed labels!
These metal bookplates by Martha Stewart Home Office were PERFECT! I knew they existed, it just took me a while to get around to buying them and putting them on. How amazing are these to organize bins with! They stick on and come with multiple card stock pieces to write your label on. They slip in and out easily. I added some washi tape for extra flair. How polished would these make your classroom organization look?! I can't wait to find more ways to use them!
Have you used these before? I would love to know your organization ideas for them!
