Office Cubicle Makeover

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 goldΒ to jam or mason jars.

DIY: Mason Jar Vase: Use Oil Based Sharpie, or Porcelaine PenΒ to add designs to a white ceramic vase or mason jar! (I found this at the local Dollarstore!)

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.

  • I love that you have made the space your own! The vinyls on the wall is super creative!

  • Hi Victoria, I love what you did to your cubicle, especially the adorable pen jar! That’s so original, well, your entire space is. I wouldn’t mind working in a cubicle if it looked like yours! Great job!
