One of the best parts of my desk makeover was making it work for me.
In other words the styling.
I did tons of research to figure out what I wanted and needed. In other words I spent an exorbitant amount of time on Pinterest.
I found that there are three things that should be included.
1. Something functional. Like a magazine file or a tray to organize papers.
I kept it pretty simple with a spray painted tray from Michael’s. It holds my planner, a re-purposed spice jar holding pens and a bud vase holding a fabric flower my mom made.
2. Something pretty. Fresh flowers, a candle or decorative items.
I added another small tray with a lovely artichoke candle, and a few more spice jars (to hold paperclips).
The prints are from IKEA and I love how the colors tie in everything from the living room.
3. Something inspirational. Quotes and pictures that keep you motivated.
Lastly, I printed out my mantra and I leave it front and center so I can see and live it everyday.
I use this area much more than I did before because its pretty and functional for me.
