Isn’t nice when you find a completely different and useful function for something that is no longer needed?
This little hutch, perfect for desk organization, is made out of two old (and certainly discontinued) Ikea CD holders. Since nobody is using CDs anymore, I saved them from the trash.
How I made it
I sanded the boxes, joined them with glue and nails, and painted it white.
The two little bars inside were originally on top (you can see the marks from when I pried them off), they were used for stacking the boxes. I relocated them.
Four little Dollar Store baskets and the new little hutch now has four drawers for keeping some of my most frequently-used small items.
It resulted in a happy, little, colorful organizer for my desk.
