Office decor: DIY projects to refresh your workspace

by Paul Cuttic 11/15/2022

If you’re in the market for new office decor, DIY might be the best way to go. With DIY decor, you can turn your functional workspace into a stylish home office - all while saving money at the same time.

Need ideas for what kind of office decor to make? Here are three suggestions to inspire you:

DIY Hairpin leg desk

Hairpin leg furniture is simple to make and an excellent way to add functionality and style to your living space. In your home office, the perfect hairpin desk will provide you with the workspace you need without making the room seem crowded.

To build your own hairpin desk, all you need is your choice of tabletop and some prefabricated hairpin legs available from online or local home improvement retailers.

DIY Wood desk organizer

Do you need more storage to clean up your desk space? Create a stylish wooden desk organizer to sort and contain your office supplies. There are many ways you can create a desk organizer, depending on what you want to use it for.

For example, use narrow vertical wood slats to organize mail and other important documents. Drill several holes into a wood block for an instant pen and pencil holder. Or, repurpose a silverware drawer insert to store small items like paper clips and charging cables.

DIY Chalkboard office calendar

If you have empty wall space, why not put it to good use? With some chalkboard paint, painter’s tape and measuring equipment, you can make your own chalkboard wall calendar. You’ll have a place to note important meetings, deadlines and make to-do lists right on your wall with zero wasted space.

To make your calendar sleek and professional, add a simple DIY frame with washi tape, wood or metal. Not only will the wall calendar keep you organized, it will also serve as a unique piece of home office decor.
