Why spend money on desk organizers when you can just make your own? I chose corks because they are easy to stack and glue together. Corks are durable, can be cut or painted. Chalk board paint is also a fun way to transform a flat surface into a writing surface for notes and reminders. I used a chalk board marker because it’s easy to write with.
If you’re an art major, making your own organizers can really help you get through the school year. It’s also gives you the opportunity to make an organizer that is custom to the needs of the supplies you have. They also add a personal touch to your space because you can design them the way you want.
