I thought it would make a good excuse to share my semi-new workspace with you all. (Remember my old one? Yep, our dining table.:) I was long overdue for a dedicated workspace and we decided to turn our guest room into a dual office.
I got an inexpensive white desk from Ikea and love how bright and clean is it. Macs just look better on white, they really do. Nick was sweet enough to help me set up a new monitor to my Mac so that I’m looking at eye level… and what a luxury! That little change has helped my posture tremendously. I also got my dream chair, which was a splurge, but I like to think the added productivity is worth it… plus it’s comfortable, too!
I knew I wanted to put lots of visuals and quotes to keep me inspired and I was also hoping for a tack board. I anticipate I’ll change the wall art once in a while, but for now these were some great inspiring prints I had already! (Pictured above from left to right: “just be cool” by The Vaguely, “keep calm and blog on” by Shayla Grace, “you don’t need to sleep to dream” by Citizens for Optimism, & “feels good to get some stuff done” by Mary Kate McDevitt)
I also incorporated a bit of DIY- all super simple projects. I painted the border of a cheap corkboard from Ikea to be bright blue. It was an easy task that made a big difference!
Using washi tape, I created “frames” around my prints. They add a fun touch, are renter-friendly, and are easy to change up later!
Scattered inspiration boards are fun, but I need order. These categorized lists on my bulletin board help me feel organized.
This is my favorite…
Do you have a dedicated workspace? I’ll admit sometimes the couch and my laptop feels like a dream, but I’m so glad I now have a dedicated workspace as I feel so much more balanced.
I’d love to hear what you think and if you’ve tried any other DIY ideas for your office or workspace.
Hope you’re having a great week!
