It All Started with a Tray

I found this great storage tray from Target on clearance for $6. I thought I might use it in the basement to hold my craft supplies but since I’ve been making some updates in the office lately I realized it would be a great place to store all of the power cords for my electronics.  They used to hide in this gorgeous blue lacquer box on my office shelves but it quickly ran out of space as I bought more toys.
