Playing with a new desk-tidy

I not only picked up some tired old wheelbarrows from the recent hard-rubbish collection, I also came across this bathroom towel rack.  I spotted it whilst taking Kayla for a walk and whipped it up not exactly knowing what it was at first until I found the screw brackets on the back!

Desk tidy unclean

After a good clean and disinfection I gave it a new lease of life on my desk, playing around with different layouts. 

Desk tidy 1

Those little cubicles are just the right size for my fat quarters.

Desk tidy 2

I tried out another scheme…

Desk tidy 4

…and another:

Desk tidy 5

To be honest I don’t really have the space on my desk for it without making it completely useful, and then it’s not half as good looking without the ornaments!  But I had fun playing and I’ll attempt to find some space for it elsewhere in the studio. 

Have you got any unusual storage solutions?

Till next time!

lots of good ideas here but you can not tell me that all your fat quarters are on display here!!
I Have a few mini chests of drawers which sit on other pieces of furniture which hold my beads,trinkets and fancy threads. Love wood of any sort

I love that it was a found object! I use a variety of empty kleenex boxes to hold my scraps. =)
