What's on your workdesk Wednesday? 210

This week I am showing a messy desk as I have had so many comments on my tidiness, I thought you might like to see the dark side!

I was covering some round boxes which I am going to use as staging for a display, but I wanted them to have a more Shabby Chic look.

I also made some 'trees', they are going to be covered with sweets as a treat for the children!

I had some lovely suggestions for what to do with my printers tray, I am now well away with the design. I can't wait to finish it and share.
Have a great week!


  1. Those boxes turned out well, didn't they? The display will look rather gorgeous with those in it!

  2. What a busy person. We did the trees at the day care centre craft club, covering them in paper flowers. I

  8. Those tress are going to be so cute! Love the soft colours you've chosen, and you are no where NEAR the dark side with your desk. Really, have you seen mine?? and this week it's actually pretty tidy. At most you qualify as slightly the dim side (desk, not mind LOL!) but a long way to go to get truly DARK...

    Happy WOYWW!

  13. That's better...a desk that looks more like mine! I love the sweet trees, they'd be great for Xmas (if I'm allowed to mention it!) Hugs.

  17. Hi Karen, great desk - fabulous storage at back.

    Happy crafting and happy WOYWW... Gill x #107

  18. That's what my desk looks like when I'm in the middle of creating things . . . but then it's tidied up immediately afterwards, else I cannot THINK or CREATE anything!

    Your boxes look great, and I'm looking forward to seeing your finished trees and printers tray.

    Thanks for visiting me. Hugs, Sarn #57

  19. The boxes look fab. The sweetie trees are inspired, you are very creative! Thanks for popping by, have a great week - Lucy #33 x

  20. great looking desk and projects! I bought some of those boxes and didn't know what I was going to do with them...maybe I will go cover them now that I see how nice they can look! Trees with candies...yummy idea. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week! Vickie #26

  21. Oh the display pieces are fab - you must be really pleased. Printers tray - you're doing it? Mine's still undone after 3 years. Gulp.

  22. loved seeing your beautiful makes and your dark side...thanks for sharing...happy WOYWW...hugs kath xxx

  23. What a fab idea the sweet trees are and what lovely boxes you have made. Incidentally, your desk looks pretty organised to me.
    Sorry I am late, sorry I did not comment last week but you didn't leave me a number and I did search and search but couldn't find you.

    Hugs, Neet xx 27

  24. Hi Karen,

    I noticed the washi tape on your desk. I'm slowly developing a small collection! Now - to use it!

    Your boxes came out wonderfully!!!

    Thanks for visiting me already. I can't believe it's Monday and I'm STILL trying to visit desks..... life got in the way this weekend.

    Happy WOYWW
