I am on the down swing of shows on my calendar this year. I.CANNOT.WAIT! This year at work has been a doozey and I have a feeling the first half of next year is going to be the same.
Next week when the show I just opened today closes, they are going to be tearing down our offices to replace carpet in the building. I am actually pretty happy about this because our offices are horrible right now. HORRIBLE. Aside from the fact that we do not have heat or AC, our walls are black and it is dark. I like to call this place the haunted house.
We actually have REAL offices, but are not allowed to use them (long story). We also had REAL offices here at our current location, but they were torn down and we have to use our temporary walls instead….for the last almost four years. Basically we work in a glorified cube where you can hear your neighbors think and any noise out in the hall from workers/freight/cleaning people/etc.
Since we are tearing the walls down, I suggested that we reconfigure the office to a better layout so it is less maze-y and makes more sense. The response was teeth sucking so I requested we at least have WHITE walls in our space so it is a little less dungeon like. Now that I am getting my way (heh), I have been pinning ways to make my office more me. I am here 50+ hours a week, so it should be more comfortable. Here is my inspiration and here is my Pinterest board for the occasion (I have a thing for gold right now):
This was my vision for the office at home, but since I DO share the space with a boy, it might be a little too much for his tastes. I have a lot of display space with my desk, the hutch behind me and a table. I can add any table we have in our office to mine if I need the extra space, but I might try to nix it. I havent decided. The key to this update is it has to be quick, easy, and cheap. All of my money is tied up to finishing our dining room right now (ALMOST there). Plus, when I leave or am fired, I want it to be easy to take everything with me.
I may have to make a sign for the walls too (and something to post in the shop). Maybe an H?
What is your favorite office accessory?
