With just a few items, I was able to create a budget friendly office update that’s functional and stylish. I added a new area rug and more portable storage options to tame the clutter with a few items from Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart.
Budget Friendly Office Update Mini Makeover
As a BHGLivebetter Influencer, our monthly challenge had me focusing on my office space.
My office and my craft room really took a beating these past few months and was highly neglected. For online influencers, the months of October, November, and December (the 4th quarter) can be brutal. This is when the bulk of our sponsored work is created. Combine that with the holidays and something has to give.
Office Makeover BEFORE
It’s a dark room anyway and my carpet, which is also from Better Homes & Gardens was just too dark. (it’s a 5’x7′ and on sale for $51.91, it also comes in a variety of sizes, as large as 7’x10′ for $108) I love it for its design and softness, but it was just the wrong choice for this room. And it was time to tame the clutter. I share this office with whoever is using the other side desk and computer. I’d like to paint it, but that would require taking the extra large Memo Boards down and removing ALL my office furniture. It’s the only way my husband repaints a room. So, until then, I will live with the celery green paint left over from my Mediterranian decor days.
