Desk Organization with Lucite Trays
Truth time.¬† I have been feeling quite overwhelmed lately. I have several long to-do lists in multiple areas of work and life that it has almost left me paralyzed.¬†¬† Which leads to feeling more overwhelmed because I am getting nothing done. Does that ever happen to you? ¬†You have so much to do and then you get nothing done? So, I decided the best place to jump start myself is with desk organization ‚Äì especially my desk drawer. ¬†Somehow, that helps, at least in my head. I found this set of pretty Lucite trays at Homegoods last week and loved the look.¬† One is holding papers on my desk and the other will be used in my makeup drawer.¬† After looking at them closely, I realized that it is almost like a contact paper lining on the bottom that gives the lace look. So, I ordered this contact paper, this tray, and this one too for my bathroom drawer. I started by tracing out the outline of the tray and cutting it down to size. I¬†went back in a second time and trimmed it down so that it laid in between the nubbies on the back side that keep it from slipping. Once cut to the right size, I simply unrolled it and attached it to the tray. The tray for my bathroom is adjustable in size so I only did the two underside sections. It is such a simple detail that probably only I will see, but somehow, this is helping me feel better.¬† This drawer was just filled with junk, half of which needed to be thrown away or put somewhere else.¬† Now, what I do need is right at my fingertips. I am off to cross some things of the to-do list, including organizing my make-up drawer.¬† I can not deny ‚Äì it is a hot mess! Thanks so much for reading!
