Moving Things Away from the Desk

Keep the desk organized often means freeing up as much surface space as possible and this can be done in more ways than one. Use the wall next to the desk or one behind it to clear the clutter. The idea we love here the most is the expansive pegboard wall with multiple storage options that looks super-cool and serves you in many different ways. The vintage desk organizer is a more understated way of doing things while the triangular DIY desk organizer adds geo charm to the setting.
