Accent on Accessories - Day 4

Since most of us won't need to be in our offices for the next 3 days, (aren't 3-day Holiday weekends the best?) I thought this might be a good time to discuss the often neglected office space.

If you spend a large part of your week in an office or cubicle, interesting and pretty accessories can make that time more enjoyable. So below, I offer some suggestions for transforming your work space.

Don't forget a green plant or two. They help to purify that stuffy recycled air and bring a litte of the outside in.

Try arranging your furniture & equipment in a new a different way. Moving things around a bit will keep it interesting!

New slipcovers will give your well-worn things a new, fresh look.

Create a new look with wallpaper. Who said foil went out with the 80's??

Here's an example of budget-friendly decor.

Finally, when you want the boss to know that you're not even thinking of working over the Holiday weekend...

Hope you all have a great 4th of July!



  1. Oh Chris, this post is so funny ! And I love your music to go with it!

  2. Oh those photos are so funny. We actually DID fill up a cubicle one time. We filled it with balloons. When I worked at the newspaper I did my best to make the cube feel cozy.

    One time we all arranged to have a very, very, very large rock deposited on the top of the bosses desk. It was probably a ton, I don't know. It took at least 4 strong men to get it there. The boss had a great sense of humor and when he determined who had masterminded the scheme..... that person found the rock in the middle of their driveway.

  3. Your pictures are delightful! I wouldn't want to clean up that mess!!

    You are so right about staying in God's Word and staying on a Godly path. That is the only way to live a peaceful life. The world fights that tooth and nail and I'm ashamed to say that at times I do too. But God is gracious.

    Have a wonderful 4th of July!


  4. Oh you are a funny gal. I just thought I would pop over and take a look see and boy am I happy I did. It just cracked me up with the commentary and the photos. Now I know how to decorate my Hubbys office. Thanks


  5. How funny! I hope that you had a wonderful 4th! :)

  6. I love it! The silver really makes the cubicle look bigger doesn't it?! hee hee.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
