Redecorating Itch

The best picture I could get of my office
I get this itch every once in a while where I feel the need to redecorate or rearrange things in my office and even at home. This itch is the reason that I rearranged our living room a few months ago and realized that I liked it better the new way. I have always been about making the most out of the space that you have. I think this comes from when I was younger and had to share my room with my sister. I didn't have a lot of my own space, so I did with it what I could.

New dry erase calendar
Well today, I am getting that itch. I have been trying to rearrange a few things in my office to make it look better, but with not a lot of options, it is really hard to do anything. So my solution, adding a new dry erase calendar to my wall. I found this calendar at Staples today for a whopping $3 and had to have it. So it added a little bit more of a personal touch to my office. I also received all of my newly purchased Scentsy stuff yesterday and because my party sold so much, I had a credit for over $100 so I got a ton of stuff I wasn't planning on, which meant that I got to order an extra warmer for my office. Yay! It is cute and adds a little bit more personality. I still wish that I could do more though.

I wish my office wasn't a bunch of temporary walls. As you can tell from the picture above, I don't even have a real desk. My desk doesn't have legs, and I can't move it around. It is held up with temporary walls that have filing cabinets on them, so you can't do anything. You can't move them or everything would fall apart. I really wish that they weren't like this. My coworker and I discuss all the time about how we would have the office set up so much differently if we had permanent walls and a real door. It's okay to dream right? It will never happen though. I'm sure the last thing on my employer's mind is that they need to make our walls permanent, haha!

All of this talk is suddenly making me want to rearrange and redecorate the apartment tonight. Especially my room. The walls are pretty bare, and I have a theme that I want to establish, but having the funds to do so isn't always in the cards. I know this has been totally overdone, but I really want to do a New York theme in my room and if I ever have a guest bedroom, I want to do a Paris theme in it. I think it would be way cute to have a different city theme in each room. This probably won't happen for a long time, but I think it would be a lot of fun to shop for all of the different pieces and to actually put the room together.

I keep trying to think of new things to do to make my office a little bit more me, but I am not sure what to do. Do any of you have any suggestions? I would really like to here what you guys have done with an office space to make it have some more personality. Well, I hope that everyone has an amazing weekend!
