Deal of the Week

I have been trying to organize our office the last few days.  Our desk gets SO cluttered with pens and little pieces of paper.  Ugh!  I ran across this fun desk organizer at the thrift store and knew it would be perfect for the office.  I applied a couple coats of my 99 cent Home Depot spray paint (love that stuff!) and added some photos.  Not too bad for only $2.00!

No project is complete without a touch of Stanley :)
