Check out how Hip2Save reader Jennifer used one person’s trash and inexpensive Dollar Tree finds to create a fun desk space that her daughter will treasure.
“I picked up these separate wood cubbies from our neighbor who had them set by the road for trash. Never overlook trash finds, as another person’s trash may be your treasure!
My daughter had been wanting a desk for a while. We needed a custom desk for her playroom since it’s an odd shaped room. I spotted these and knew they would work out perfectly for what we needed (plus double as storage for her stuff). I brought them home, cleaned them, and painted them white with leftover paint from previous projects. I attached a board that we already had to the top – and we had a desk!
I used mostly Dollar Tree finds for storage and decor. The hanging terrarium with succulent is from Dollar Tree along with other succulents on the desk. The Hello Sunshine galvanized sign, bubble gum machine, magnets on the board, sequin bins, blackboard, whiteboard, and little clothespins are all from Dollar Tree. Behind the sequin bins, we also used clear storage containers with white lids for storage.
Dollar tree is a great place to look for inexpensive organization!”
