Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Office Space Makeover

I must admit I had a despicable desk/office area that was pretty much un-inspiring and unsightly. I knew I would be spending a lot of time at my desk so I had to do something to revamp my work space to keep me inspired and wanting to spend time here.  

I gave myself a challenge, which was sticking to a $100 budget so with some creativity (used a lot of things I already had at home and re-worked them into this space) and a few stops at Target, Michael's, Marshall's and Dollar Tree (yes, you read Dollar Tree) I was able to revamp my space for under $100! 

Here is the break down of items bought: 

1. black dry erase board- $12.99  - Target

- for easy jotting down of fleeting  ideas (I can sometimes I have a very short-term memory) 

2. Cork boards (set of 4 tiles)- $7.99 - Target

- came in a set of 4 squares so I was able to mix and match where I wanted to put the cork squares and will also be able to personalize my space by pinning different magazine tears or articles that inspire me

3. Chandelier wall decal- $12.99 - Target

- gives any space an instant chic factor

4. Black/White Curtain- $19.99 - Target

5. Black Picture Frames (total of 5)- $5 ($1 each) - Dollar Tree

- I made high-quality photo copies of an art book to fill the frames

6. Square Mirrors (total of 2)- $2 ($1 each) - Dollar Tree

- gives a small space dimension and makes it look bigger

7. Photo boxes (total of 2)- $4 ($2 each) - Michael's  

- great to stow away any unsightly cords, papers, etc

8. White silk flowers (sand, vase and flowers bought separately)- $12 ($4 each item) - Michael's

9. Pink @ sign- $3 - Marshall's

Total $79.96..... $20.04 UNDER BUDGET
