I told my partner at work that if he didn’t decorate his office, then I would. He told me to go ahead. I said I would. He thought I was joking. Dear reader, we all know I would never joke about something like that. I’ll show you more of the things I have been working on for both his and my office, but here’s the first one that I planted there when he wasn’t looking.
Our team leader always gets cheesed at him for having papers lying around on his desk (and we work in pretty much a paperless office so it boggles the mind that they’re there), so I figured if he had a place to put them then they wouldn’t be lying around.
I had a handful of cork tiles that I picked up from the dollar store at some point. I got two packages of two for two dollars each. Not bad. With some painter’s tape and some acrylic craft paint, I was ready to jazz them up a little to give them some form as well as function.
So I laid out the painter’s tape to mask off the areas I wanted to paint.
Then I painted.
Then I peeled.
Then I used 3M Command Strips to attach them to his office wall (the strips ensure they can be removed later with no wall damage).
And a gentle reminder to put his crap away. 🙂
Stay tuned for more quick and dirty office decor activities!
EDIT: My team leader, delightful keener that she is, took the idea and ran with it in corporate fashion in her own office:
