Give Your Work Space a Promotion!
Now this is the story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down. And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll tell you how I became the… queen of the cubicle?
I don’t know about you, but Spring Fever is coming on pretty strong lately (hopefully the weather gets a little warmer). Probably because I sit in a cubicle at work all day and have no view of the outside world. I’m also not the most organized girl in the world, so last week I took advantage of my light work load and reorganized/decorated my cube!
Here’s what I’m working with…
My company moved in just over a year ago. I guess it didn’t take me long to make myself at home!
As you can see, it’s a very dull, drabby, boring brown cubicle. I NEED COLOR!
Thankfully, my Pinterest-obsessed sister made me a few items to give the space some color, including a picture frame cork board and a homemade pencil holder. When I was at Home Goods last weekend, I bought a fake bouquet of flowers for only $7! (It may sound tacky, but everyone thinks they’re real).
For organization, I bought some items from At-a-Glance, including two calendars: one for day-to-day reference, and the other so I could see the entire year “at a glance”. I also got a super cute monthly planner (because I am all about making lists and checking things off) and a matching notebook portfolio so I am beyond prepared for client meetings… well I’ll at least “look” prepared!
I also landed some great finds from The Office Stylist, including some sticky notes (because I can’t live my life without them), a bright mouse pad and some pretty file folders to not only help me organize, but give the back of my desk some nice color!
I am so much happier now that I have a bright, pretty place to work. If you’re feeling a little seasonal depression and think you need a cube makeover, take 10 minutes to shop online, you’ll be surprised at the cool things you’ll find while still pinching a penny!
I love how I’ve styled my work life!
