One thing that really helps maximize a small space is vertical storage. When I saw a hanging organization board in Better Homes & Gardens, I knew I could make one for myself. First, I used a staple gun to attach wallpaper to a 2x6-foot board (I scored a roll left over from a photo shoot at work). Then, I attached organizers and cork paper from Target. Work documents live in the file folder at the bottom, photos and notes are displayed with push pins, pens and pencils have a home, and notes, stamps and bills are filed in the letter holder at the top. Plus, pretty paper helps liven up a beige wall. All in all, the project cost me about $30 and I scored a ton of desk space!
