During last years 31 day challenge, I made a PVC pipe desk organizer that I still use every day. It's come in super handy and the fact that I can hang it on my wall to keep my kids out of things makes it even better. The only problem that I have run into was that it wasn't in arms reach for me, at least not now with my new desk.
I needed something that was portable and easy to reach and something that I could switch out the tools in as I was working on specific projects. So I went into my garage into my scrap pile of wood and found an old 4x4 piece of wood. I used these fun circular drill bits to drill holes into it in different sizes.
After I was done drilling the holes, I wrapped it in some of my favorite washi tape patterns and BAM, it was that easy!
Some of the holes are big enough to fit my pliers so when I am making jewelry, I have them right there. Some holes are small enough for my pencils when I am sketching.
I think I might add a hole that will fit my glue sticks too because I am always using those.
And the best part is, it's super light weight so it's easy for me to take this outside when I am working in the garage or at my desk inside, or at the kitchen table, or in the kitchen, or anywhere I am crafting at the moment!
What would you like to have within arms reach at your desk?
