On Wednesday, I was cruel. I showed you how I made this awesome cork board, but didn’t tell you where I was putting it.
I can only imagine how much it’s been bothering you the past two days. You have been losing sleep over it. It has been the topic of your dinner conversations. GOMI has been hating everything about it. It’s been pinned 50 million times. Okay, the only true thing is none of that. But I AM excited to show you a space you have never seen before on the bliggity-blog.
Internet: meet my work office.
I share an office with the most outrageous Asian I know: Hong-Ly. #SweetAndSour
I adore her with all my being. I seriously could not function without her.
This is our office before:
Snooze-fest right? It doesn’t take a CSI investigator to figure out that our office needed some fixin. Do you spy the cork board there on the left?
We had to add another desk into our office, and we carpe diem-ed the day to decorate.
Our budget was like Ryan Gosling’s abs- tight tight tight. We decided to stay within the bounds of Ross to find our office decor. At first we were pretty frustrated with their selection of decor, but we starting mushing it all together, until we found something that worked.
And this is what ended up working for us on the accessory front:
And there it sits. Looking all Moroccan-y.
And there’s the beauty board!
And if you ever look at my Instagram, you know that this is the stage to my obsession with taking pictures of gluten free lunches and snacks. I’m sorry. I really don’t know why I feel the need to take pictures of my food! But thanks for humoring me 🙂 And now you understand that Ryan helps me not feel left out when I can’t eat bread things that are standard in offices. Muffins. Bagels. Toast.
And here’s our cork board in full use. The fabric is perfect. It’s the perfect shade of Equity blue, with the same teal that is the ceramic elephant.
Now you know where I sit from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM. Having some decor completely changes the vibe of our office. And it was only a year and 3 months late! Is your office/desk at work decorated? Did you take over a year to do it?
