When I started my new job, I was quick to begin to add personal touches to my cubicle. I started with posters and photos, began to add decorative knick-knacks and slowly adding more crafty/diy touches. While there’s more I hope to do in the future, here’s a peak at my workspace, and some more detailed points on how to get the look yourself!
DIY: Pen Jar – Add liquid gold to jam or mason jars.
DIY: Candy Tray – Another dollarstore upcycle! I used Pebeo Porcelaine Paint to paint the bottom of the tray. I included “Eat Me” in chalk to encourage people to pick one up.
DIY: Chalkboard – This one didn’t work out as well as I had hoped, but it’s ok. I used regular chalkboard paint for this one!
DIY: Triangle Banner – An easy way to add a little colour and pattern to your space! I just cut out triangles from my leftover scrapbook paper – easy!
DIY: Perhaps my most ingenious idea, vinyl inspiration boards! I added paper clips to the edges of the vinyl to tuck ideas and inspiration! I also added a stripe of liquid gold (can you tell I’m a bit obsessed?) to one of the records for a splash!
Other Decor Tips
– Flowers (fake or real) can easily brighten up a space
– Posters are a great talking point with new co-workers. Tack them up, or put them in frames!
– Take a look at what you have a home that isn’t doing anything productive. I brough mugs, stuffed animals, boxes and storage to help keep myself organized.
– Washi tape is your best friend! An ugly surface isn’t so ugly with a cute piece of tape! I did this to my computer screen and hope to add more to other places.
