Office Do's and Don'ts

Hi friends,

Hope you had an amazing weekend :) We enjoyed some tennis and swimming and were super excited to see Despicable Me 2 with tickets we won from Jennifer's giveaway on Rambling Renovators. It was a fun afternoon with Gru, popcorn and Minions.

In other news, I have this week off for a mini 'staycation' and I plan to get some projects done around the house. We'll see what actually gets done as I can be a bit of dreamer in this respect but I am putting it out there in hopes that it will be the encouragement I need to follow through.

One of the projects that I want to tackle is my husband's office in our basement. In my search for inspiration, I've come across some Do's and definite Don'ts that I thought I share in another installment of my Do's and Don'ts series. Please know that this is just the world accordingly to me and meant to be light and funny not mean spirited. And feel free to disagree or add your own :)

First up, DON'T let your office's messiness scare you away like this one:

DO create a well organized, welcoming work environment like this:

DON'T make your office so boring that you fall asleep before you get any work done like this:

DO use color and decor items to make your office an enjoyable place like this:

DON'T use ugly storage items like this:

DO use clean white, built-ins to hide clutter and keep everything in it's place like this:

DON'T use small outdated furniture to create a workspace in your bedroom like this:

DO create an elegant workspace in your bedroom that fits with your existing decor and add a comfortable upholstered chair:

That concludes the Do's and Don'ts for today. Hope you've found them as helpful as I have. Anything you'd add or change ? Do tell :)

I leave you today, with this amusing office related item:
