Ideas for Office Decor

You don’t need to look far and wide for ideas to decorate your office. I have made similar coasters that are perfect for a splash of color, like my Rubber Band Coaster and the Push Pin Coaster!

Of course, you can add fun office lighting by making your own. You can do a Gumball Lamp for a fun look or a Golf Ball Lamp for a more traditional lamp.

You can also do a furniture makeover to make your office your own, like my Glam Resin Table or a simple accent Chair Makeover!

Most important, when you are thinking of ideas for office decor, think of repurposing items to help keep you organized, like my Candle Jar Makeover! Fun and functional!
