Desk Makeover

Welcome to Day 5 of your SEXIEST year ever! Click here to catch up on Day 4!

You worked hard to make your house a home, but when it comes to your home office—or, even worse, your cubicle—all style went out the window in the name of functionality. Change that this year by giving your desk the TLC it deserves. An organized and visually pleasing work environment means you’ll be less stressed (there’ll be no frantic searching for the stapler), which leads to a better day.

Plus, what if the hottie UPS man stops by? You don’t want your desk looking like a bomb went off. Not cute.

Desk Makeover

I was lucky enough to have an Office Depot team and Holly Bohn, the CEO of See Jane Work, come to my home office to give it a complete makeover, and what a difference it made! Holly gave me a ton of cute See Jane Work office supplies (now available at Office Depot), all in my favorite black, white and red color scheme.

Here are just some of the products she used to transform my space (don’t worry if black isn’t your style — there’s a bunch of cute colors and patterns to choose from):

Clockwise, from top left:
See Jane Work Pencil Cup, Black ($2.99, officedepot.com)
See Jane Work Magazine File, Black ($6.99, officedepot.com), See Jane Work Organizer Tray, Black ($4.99, officedepot.com) See Jane Work File Box, Black ($14.99, officedepot.com)

The makeover resulted in a trendy space that I love to work in every day, and everything is neatly organized and presentable — which makes me feel great! Happy decorating!

    I Just love that corkboard!!

    I have a confession to make, I am little obsessed with office supplies and give my desk a makeover all too often. I find myself spending my workday(don’t tell my boss!) on http://www.theofficestylist.com browsing through her office makeovers and drooling over their office supplies at http://www.sortingwithstyle.com. Do they have a rehab program for office supply addicts? If so, I need to attend!
