At the start of this year, I was going through a creative rut and channeled my energy into organizing some things around the house and in my life. I was determined to get a desk for my jewelry tools and supplies, so that I could move off the dining table and free it up for G's cooking endeavors. While browsing the internet for desks, I decided the best thing for me would be a secretary desk. That way, I would be able to hide the messy contents of my "jewelry bench." Ikea had the perfect one, the Alve Secretary Desk. For this desk, they have a storage bench where you can put hanging files and such, and fits perfectly under the desk. I was so excited to find all this, because I didn't have a dedicated space for my jewelry. I was constantly taking out my supplies, then putting them away. It was fine when I first started, but my supplies and materials have grown so much, that I really needed to do something about it. And the best part of this is that I found the desk on Craigslist for $80! Score!
I also bought a slim storage tower to put beside my desk and multi-drawer cabinets, seen on top of it, all from the Container Store. I do think that stuff from the Container Store can be a bit pricey, but I couldn't find anything else that would fit so perfectly in my space.
There is also an add on cabinet from Ikea which fits above the desk, that I plan on purchasing in the near future. Those multi-drawer cabinets are great, but not very pretty. So the cabinet will hide it all very nicely.
