DIY Desk Organizing Ideas & Projects

If you have a home office like us or just a desk to pay bills, or even your work desk, then you have a clutter issue. There is just so much stuff that goes into taking care of business, right? But you spend enough time at your desk that not only should it be organized, it should showcase your style as well. We found some amazing DIY desk organizing ideas and projects that will get your space simplified, and bring some pretty into the mix as well. And if you have to be at a desk, don’t you deserve to look at something pretty?

We are in love with this color block box supply storage from ‘ I Spy DIY’. Easy project with just enough color to brighten up your desk and your day, but corrals the “stuff”. Inexpensive too!

 

This DIY desk organizer from ‘Sugar and Cloth’ is an easy project that not only gives you some places to store things, but also a cork board to pin up things that you want/need to look at! Get some pretty novelty push pins and tuck a few travel photos or other inspirational things up there in between the tax receipts and the to-do list.

 

This DIY desk organizer from ‘ Poppytalk’ is made from birch plywood and can be customized to have as few, or as many little storage spots as you need! Simple to follow tutorial.

 

Learn how to make a modern desk organizer from a piece of wood from ‘Ehow’. This is a great tutorial for an easy project that looks upscale and not at all cutesy. Love the spot for your phone!

 

Talk about clever home hacks! Another great project from ‘ I Spy DIY”, these DIY succulent and supply bookends are made from toothbrush holders and cork coasters! Fun and easy project that brings living plants to your desk, love it!

 

These DIY desk accessories are gold and glam, and thanks to the blog at ‘Pottery Barn’, you can follow the tutorial to make them yourselves. Easy project. You could even use dollar store glass ware, then all you need is spray paint and some tape!

 

From Robert at ‘Kin Community’ is this video tutorial (it’s written too) on this DIY desk organization set made from recycled cans and cork. Cute, easy and cheap!

 

This DIY desktop organizer from ‘Home Depot’ by ‘Plaid’ is a fun an colorful project using pvc pipe and paint. This would look really elegant glam if you painted it copper and silver!

 

These Kate Spade (love!) inspired DIY acrylic desk accessories from ‘Just Destiny’ are girly and fun. She made them using letter containers from The Container Store, and some pink card stock. So pretty, and I love the label letters on the stackable file organizers!

 

Lastly, this wood photo frame DIY desk organizer from ‘Crafts Unleashed’ is made from exactly that… small wood photo frames! Add some ball feet and some stain, and this would make a more masculine touch to any desk!
