Spring Cleaning, Office Edition: 3 Fresh Desk Inspirations

The thought of spring cleaning might not sound like buckets of fun after hibernating indoors all winter. We are here to tell you that spring cleaning doesn’t just have to include scrubbing out the refrigerator and organizing that daunting closet.

Spring cleaning can also mean sprucing up your space, adding in color, and starting anew! We think that having a fun and refreshing workspace or office desk makes work life a little more enjoyable. There are plenty of ways to spice up your office space without having to break the bank or break a sweat!


1. Potted Succulent Garden DIY

This Real Simple Succulent Garden from 1800Flowers.com is such a great way to add some life to your desk. It comes in a beautiful white ceramic pot but if you’re looking for more color we suggest adding beautiful patterned washi tape. This is a quick and simple way to paint your life with a little more color and a little more fun.


2. Upcycled Tea Container

If you’re looking for a new and inventive way to store your pens and pencils, just upcycle. We love to create a fun vintage look by reusing old coffee or tea tins as pencil holders. This will add character to your workspace and keep you a bit more organized.


3. DIY Floral Thumbtacks

With just three pieces of supplies, you can create the most adorable and useful office supply. Using craft flowers (we found ours at Michaels), flat thumbtacks, and super glue, you can make floral thumbtacks that are perfect for spring. If you don’t already have a cork board at your workspace, these adorable thumbtacks will make you want one.

  • Flat-back thumbtacks
  • Paper or scrapbooking flowers
  • Super glue or hot glue

Just add a dot of glue to the top of your flat tack, press on a pretty flower of your choice. Let dry! Watch how quickly your corkboard turns from boring to brilliant!
