How Cute Is That? is my mom’s favorite expression — and our ongoing home decor & DIY series. From aprons to attics to alternative offices, we’re breathing new life into anything old, sharing inspired ideas, and spinning mismatched scraps into charming decor. And YES, you can try this at home!
Kelly Rae: When I was setting up my office in a closet a couple of years ago, my mom suggested I use a suitcase to hold office supplies. A suitcase? I never got around to it, but I finally took her up on the suggestion when I moved into my new office.
Mom: I had this extra suitcase around the house – it’s not vintage, but rather a new one that I purchased from Pier One years and years ago – and offered it to Kelly Rae to use on her desk. I think a vintage suitcase would be super cute too.
Kelly Rae: What I love about this idea is that the suitcase has pockets to hold stuff, and it’s all right there, in easy view. I see suitcases like this at TJ Maxx and stores like that all the time. I love this idea! New or old suitcases could work…

Kelly Rae: I love it! Holds all my notebooks and pens and office supplies I grab on a constant basis. And it totally cutefies my desk, too. Practical + cute = awesome.
Mom: How seriously cute is that?
What you guys think? Do you have fun ideas for desk organization? We’d love to hear them!
