Desk tidy
duration: 0:0:34

Messy desk, messy life, so they say. Even if you disagree with the sentiment, there’s something calming about having an organised desk that lets you concentrate on being productive on the work that matters. Keep your desktop clutter free with this clever DIY desk organiser. We’ve used a green/blue paint palette, but feel free to get creative with colours that you love.

You will need:

  • Timber base
  • Batten lengths to fit across the base
  • Liquid nails
  • Resene testpots in Resene Elephant, Resene Dali, Resene Rolling Fog, Resene Riptide and Resene Fringy Flower
  • Resene roller and tray
  • Masking tape (optional, for patterns)

Step one. Paint the timber base in Resene Elephant, and leave to dry.

Step two. Paint the batten lengths in a different colour using the Resene testpots. Leave to dry.

Step three. Apply a layer of liquid nails to each batten length and fix to the base, with equal spacing between each.

Step four. We used masking tape to create a pattern to the front of ours, tying all the colours together.

Step five. Use the desk organiser to store pens, your mobile, notes and even your diary, and enjoy your new found organised life.
