What about buying a storage valet for your stuff?  Something like this would seemingly be presentable enough:



I have a simpler version for my nightstand; it works great.

that is what the cozy is basically, except it doesn't open and close, the stuff just sits on top.  It has nice felt and stuff.  It actually looks pretty nice.  She just wants everything in the drawers and out of the way, which just seems odd to me.

Sit her down, give her a piece of chocolate (dames love chocolate), and explain to her slowly and carefully why she's upset and why that is a foolish and irrational way to feel.  If she interrupts or tries to correct you, repeat yourself slower and more loudly. 

When it seems like she's getting it, pat her gently on the head, wink, and say "now don't you feel a little silly?  That could've ruined the game for me."  Give her another piece of chocolate, put your feet up, and knock out a few beers.  Sneak the empties into the desk drawers if you want to share a few laughs together later, but that's optional - you've earned a little "me" time.

My advice?

Draw the users.
Use the drawers.

No big fuss, and e'rythin'll be all right.

And if she gets a little upset at this, just tell her:

Well, I'm with you.  It would drive me crazy, if the thing isn't an eyesore. 

Does the cozy fit in the drawers?  It seems like an inefficient waste of time and space, but I suppose it's a potential compromise.

Bull-crap it is. That jackbooted thug Moranis called a wife already got her compromise with the desk/sideboard thingy! Now he's gotta put his man-box into her lady drawers on top of everything?!

Im invested now. Moranis, you put your wallet and crap on the kitchen counter, lean back in a kitchen chair and see what happens. Next move is hers.

I still think this is much better than actually trying to argue it.

You guys are way more rational with your wives than you are with your trade ideas.

I'm with Roy, we need to see a photo of this cozy.
