DIY Tips: Home Office Decor

How to Make Home Work Beautiful!
Okay, we get it—your home office is the place where you work, not the place where you play.  BUT—that doesn’t mean that it can’t be beautiful.  So…here are a few DIY tips on how to make your “homework” beautiful:

o   Paint the walls a color that makes YOU happy to be at work.  Do you love the chocolate brown/teal combo that’s so hot right now?  Have you always wanted to indulge your love of all things red?   Go for it!
o   Filing cabinets are a necessary item in many offices. Just because they were beige when you bought them, doesn't mean they have to stay that way!  Choose a fun color, Find a local company that offers electrostatic painting (paint that sticks to metal) and let them give your filing cabinets a new look.
o   Yes, work is…well…work.  But that doesn’t mean it has to be back-breaking work.  Be kind to your back. Choose a desk and chair that are compatible in height. Consider an ergonomic chair OR standing height desk if you spend a lot of time at the computer. Your back will thank you!
