Upcycled Organization Ideas

Sep 22, 2008 by

Monday always prompts me to re-organize my desk to prepare for a fresh week.  This weekend, I picked up an obsolete slide holder — and thought it would be lovely for a stylish desktop organization tool for the shop.

I’m also always looking to maximize my wall real estate, and this DIY project from GreenUpgrader adds a hint of shine and vintage industrial style to your office.  It is made of upcycled metal cans, great for stashing away notes, paperclips, letters, and stamps– although I think it would be interesting to use old metal cans that still have the vintage labels!

For a more rustic feel, this desk organizer from Farmhouse Wares is made of recycled garden wood…and I love the fact that you can open and close it for instant de-cluttering.

How do you organize your desks and workspaces?  What creative ways do you de-clutter your desks?  I’d love to hear about your desktop inspirations!

Stairway to the Weekend!

Sep 20, 2008 by

Remember how fun Japanese tansus are?  This staircase of fantastic visual delight takes all of it to a whole new level.  Created by “Because We Can,” a whimsically creative design studio in Oakland, this staircase is one I would want in my home — even if I don’t have a second story!  Imagine all of the display and vintage vignette possibilities!

Happy weekend my friends!  I’ll be back again full force on Monday — hopefully after some lucky vintage treasure hunting this weekend :)
