The whole office thing is kind of an issue here in casa de Dorobek. Me and my blog stuff don’t exactly have a spot. The sweet baby boy kicked me out of my original office, and now I have a desk against a wall in the living room. My desk it not tidy. I have a giant craft closet (not that close to my desk) where I try to keep most of my goods, but stuff ends up all over the desk and surrounding areas! I’m not scared to craft on the floor, y’all! Anyhow, there are certain things I use all of the time… scissors, highlighters, pens, skinny Sharpies, tape, etc. And I wanted them on my desk. So, here’s my simple, thrifty small office organization solution to my little problemo… a lovely little thrift store 2- tier caddy that literally took me about 15 minutes to make with the help of Krazy Glue, and only cost a couple of dollars!
Here’s what you need:
- Elmer’s Krazy Glue maximum bond no run gel
- Glass vase (From Good Will)
- Filler (I used paper clips I already had on hand)
- 2 different sized plates (I got mine at Good Will)
(I did not use the X-ACTO knife or the Krazy glue for crafts.)
Then it is as easy as gluing your clear glass vase to the large plate with the Krazy Glue. Fill vase with paperclips and carefully add glue to the rim of your vase and place the smaller plate on top! I stuck a few books on top and let it dry for a few hours. This step is tedious because you don’t want the glue to drip. It will dry cloudy. Krazy Glue worked great gluing together porcelian! (It also works wonders on pottery, glass, metal, vinyl and rubber!)
And here she is in all of her organizational glory sitting atop my little desk.
I think I might need one for our new bathroom too! 2 thumbs up to vertical storage. Wanna see more Krazy Glue? Check out their pinterest board with tons of Krazy Glue masterpieces in minutes!
