5 Step Office Makeover

My, my, it has been a while…

I have been here, there, everywhere, but mostly in my office!

So what is my excuse? Well, it’s a new office… a not from home office.

This office means work must be done before blogs.”THE” office.

Ok, I regress from the dramatics. 

I recently started a job back in August at Jacksonville University.

Academic Advising to be exact. YES, tis the office where life decisions are made.

Careers will be chosen, paths will be paved, some will make it to the finish line, and others….well, wont. – #Honesty

Let’s just hope they do. My office is the place where the journey begins. We see dreams come alive, passions set on fire, and the common career epiphany that arrives to us through a late night email. 

Anyways, this time I am truly done with my elaborate depiction. Moving on…

To get to the point, I have had plenty of time to give my office a makeover.

Pinterest has been a big influence and I wanted to share 5 steps that you can take to make your office look chic and unique!


#1. Get a Fab Desktop Background!

Stop looking at basic Windows default backgrounds.

It will truly brighten your day to have something fun!

My fav are Vera Bradley backgrounds, but you can always find other fancy designs on Pinterest as well.

Go Crazy! Make your background encouraging. Stop staring at your boring, bland screen.

#2. Create! 

Creating is my all time, hands down stress reliever.

I don’t know about you, but looking at something I created inspires me to create more.

Tip – bring those lovely pieces of artwork to your office to display. It may even get your creative juices flowing.

The little piece of chic below cost me $10 to craft. A small amount of paint, some stencils, and of course my love for coffee inspired this creation. All materials were found at Michaels.


#3. Organize!

Hide the cords, get rid of clutter, de-stress that mess!
