Time to organise (and decorate) that desk!

Desk organisation has taken the internet by storm with desks now looking prettier than ever. So here's how to transform a plain old desk to a stylish Pinterest worthy one...

1. Clear Out

First thing's first, have a good clear out, you'll be surprised how much stuff gets hidden away in desk drawers (this is where you're likely to find that mac lipstick you accused your friend of nabbing two years ago...oops). 

2. Research

Scour the internet for the way you'd like your desk or office space to look. Pinterest has some envy-worthy desk setups that are easy to recreate. 

3. Shopping!

Here comes the fun part! Have a good old browse for some fab new items for your desk. Etsy have some lovely decorative items, and not to mention us here at Coconut Lane... our wall prints look gorg framed on a desk! Here's some of our fave finds...

4. Organise

Once all your fab new furnishings have been ordered, it's time organise the functional side of your desk. Keep things in folders and planners to make sure you know where everything is, and designate each drawer for a certain thing such as makeup, important documents and stationery.

5. Decorate

Now that the practicalities of your desk have been sorted, it's time to decorate. Play around with the layout (and style/theme if you're really dedicated) until you're happy with now things look.

With your desk organised and looking pretty, it's time to get work and make the most of your new motivation!
