Unicorn Desk Organizer | DIY Pen Holder

Unicorn Desk Organizer

When we were selling our home last year and moving we organized every room for staging. We didn’t purchase any new furniture as we moved into our new home and after almost being here for a full year, finally all the boxes are unpacked and rooms are situated. Our daughter recently got a room makeover with matching furniture and a new desk. Creating a perfect space for her was easy with a complimentary desk from Wikibuy and we have a short list of items we would like to add for bedroom organization. We also used recycled items to make a unicorn desk organizer for pens and markers.

Upgrade your home office with a new desk and unicorn desk organizer. The DIY pen holder is a great addition to your space!

The unicorn desk organizer was a fun project and fits perfectly in my oldest daughter‘s bedroom. Her little sister is eyeing it and we’ll be making another this week with more plastic food containers we’ve been saving for crafts.

Prior to our move, our daughters rooms were full of years of unfinished crafts, art supplies, science projects and more. Staging children’s bedrooms takes an effort and piecing it all back together has been an enjoyable experience because she is actively involved in how she wants her room to look. We found a great price on a desk using Wikibuy by tagging the item and receiving alerts as the price dropped. It’s how we plan to shop for other household and office items as we continue getting every room transitioned to functional space.
