Lounge :: Desk Makeover + Organization

I'm always rushing. I get home, I get ready, and then I'm out and on to the next thing. My bedroom is rarely used for more than sleeping, yet I still have a desk. Even though I haven't sat at it in months, it was only $5 and I've had it for 3 years. It's survived 4 moves, 3 phones and 2 computers. How could I give it up now?

So, while the desk still stands, I might as well make it pretty.

This is how I set it up when I first moved here back in December. I thought it looked good, but it wasn't very functional and I wanted to add more color. Plus, I never showed you what was going on underneath...

Yikes! Major organization was needed here. I'm a packrat and a clutterbug and I keep absolutely everything. I continue to get better as I get older, but it's still hard for me to throw things away. What you see here was an unkempt home for old receipts, half-used scrapbooking supplies, blank holiday cards, unwatched DVDs, credit card statements and random decorations.

I ended up using an entire day off to redo it all. Of course, this included a Target trip for some crucial supplies. Like, that unicorn, for instance.
