A couple months ago, I set up a temporary office desk in my kitchen because my current office is under about 100 boxes (no exaggeration) and at the rate I’m going, it won’t be unpacked for another year. This temp desk is working well enough, but it needed something extra, so I decided I had to give my temp desk a Home Office Desk Makeover.
I found so many decorations that light up! Light up LED Dreamcatchers, LED neon lights, a salt lamp, and a cinema sign!
I love the pink and orange tassels of the light up dreamcatcher! And I thought it paired really well with my Prada Marfa print!
Seriously, I love that everything lights up! Eventually, this will all be moved down into my new office in the basement, so I’m going to need everything to light up to brighten and cheer up the space!
I kill any live plants I bring home, and like I said, all of this will be going into the basement, so I got these cute faux cactus wooden signs. They had sayings on the pots (like Hug Me or Home Sweet Home, you can see a photo of them below), but I’m not big on sayings like that, so I also grabbed some craft paint and just painted over them! Super easy and now they are perfect for me!
Also, that cute little salt lamp? It was only $4.99! I have salt lamps all over the house because I love the pink glow they put out! This one is a USB salt lamp, so it’s perfect for a desk – just plug it into your computer as you work for some pink lighting.
And how darling is this little bluetooth radio?
I also picked up a bunch of new desk and office supplies including folders, pens, a notebook, and this weekly tear-off desk calendar with sticky notes!
Here’s another view!
And do you have to have snacks on your desk? Sometimes when I’m working mid-afternoon or late at night I get sleepy and my eyes start to close, but I’ve found that crunching on popcorn helps me stay awake.
Have you given your office desk a makeover lately? I’ve found that it makes me a little more focused when I have a neat desk and fun decorations on it. What fun, silly items do you keep on your desk? Let me know in a comment below.
