The small compartments on the tray are perfect for holding small office supplies like paper clips and erasers, while the large compartment is big enough to hold markers and pens.

How to Make Pineapple Desk Organizer
1. Paint the top layer of your pineapple with two coats of white paint. I used Martha Stewart Vintage Decor Paint in Smoke because that is what I had on hand! I also like the Vintage Decor Paint because it acts like a chalk paint and goes onto wood very smoothly with no prep. I gave the pineapple two coats of white, leaving the underside of the pineapple its natural wood color.
2. Paint the inside compartments of the tray whatever colors you like. I used Martha Stewart multi-surface craft paints in Pumpkin, Pink Dahlia, and Pollen.
3. Finish painting the compartments and the top pineapple leaves, covering each with 2 coats of paint and letting dry completely.
