Repurposed Desk Displays from 26 Olive Street

Online vintage shop 26 Olive Street does a great job with their photos. Shot in saturated color, their pics show how versatile a seemingly simple item can be, especially in the home office. We found a few ideas for common things that can be repurposed as organizers...

Vintage trays, metal baskets, and labware are all waiting to be given a second life as desktop sorters, book stands, and pencil cups. We also love the fabric used as a background in some of these shots, which reminds us of an easy project for the home office: a fabric-covered cork board or desk blotter.
