A Little Marshall's Find

I found this last night in the clearance aisle in my stop at Marshall's for only twelve dollars. I couldn't pass it up. We have a little ceramic bowl that is the catch all for keys, change and everything else. It was always messy and never organized.  I thought that this could help the problem through organizing and hiding things in these little drawers.
I took some scrapbook paper that I had laying around and added it to the back and the top of the organizer.
Then I took one of the many buckets that I got from the Target dollar section and added all my pens, pencils and markers.  I added some chalkboard vinyl to the front of it.
It fits perfectly underneath my goodwill find that I hung on the wall. 
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a great find! And I love that you put your own spin on it!

  2. You are the most well organized AND well accessorized person I know. I love it!

  3. Great way to personalized it! I love having plenty of drawers to store things in, even though they usually end up pretty messy! :)

  4. Really? Is there anything better than a good Marshalls find? (I mean, besides a good Homegoods or TJ Maxx or IKEA or thrift store find ;)

  5. I like your attractive ways to get organized. Seems like I'm always the one putting desk clutter into the cute baskets since the others aren't bothered by it! :-)
