I saw a cartoon recently that said something to the effect of “How can you expect me to think outside the box if I have to work inside a box?” Quote source unknown, I can’t find the original cartoon….Whoever you are, you get major credit.
BUT – having a cubicle means having a job – so I’m good with that. It doesn’t have to be tan and boring though! I went to my usual haunts, where I had much success finding some cute filing options. (The Littlest One decided that my theme was “quirky” so we went with that.)
I also shopped my house where I found a pillow for my chair and storage baskets for under the desk.
Anyway, I did two little projects for my cubicle that I wanted to share. One was a plant box for my window. Succulents seem to be a good choice for an office environment, so I purchased a couple of small ones. I added some river rock to the bottom of the box for effect. (I left them in their pots for now.)
The second little project was making a tray to put all the odds and ends in. I found this for $3 at Target.
I took the rope handles off (just untie one knot) and spray painted it. Then, I put the rope handles back on and added some patterned drawer liner (also $3 from Target) on the bottom.
I have to say, it goes right along with my aforementioned theme of “quirky.”
There are still things I want to do and when I’m all set up, I’ll get some pictures up here on the blog.
But now I must ask – what are your favorite things for your desk/cubicle/office at work? If you need more ideas, I started a Pinterest board here: https://www.pinterest.com/memyselfndiy/cubicle-decor-inspiration/
