Workspace fun!

Work can be fun! Especially when one gets to decorate their own workspace! That’s what went down with these two well-used desks.

They look like they’ve been instrumental in the education of countless children.

They found their way to my clients who decided to let their occupants choose their new finish.

And what creative imaginations those occupants have!

Even doing taxes could be more fun when sitting at a desk like either of these!

I used a chalkboard spray paint for the desk surfaces to increase the fun quotient even further!

I feel honored to have had my portrait drawn. It looks just like me!

I consider painting a fun workspace more fun than work!

Even the guy who helped to deliver the desks got in on the fun!

More fun!

Consider sprucing up your workspace. We are all affected by our surroundings and making changes can drastically affect productivity and creativity!

 

 

 

 

 

Color!

I recently painted this desk.

Colorful desk

Yes, I did this on purpose you may want to ask and it was fun!

It was inspired by a piece I saw at a client’s house pictured here.

If this style of furniture has a name, I don’t know what it is.  Inadvertent design?  Accidental decor? Regardless of its origin, I happen to love it!

The desk I painted was not painstakingly planned and thought out.  Shocking, I know but I used what I had on hand.

Speaking of accidental art, I snapped this picture of the leg of my work pants because I liked the composition.  It inspired me because it was not deliberate. Laugh if you must but I do not discriminate on where I find inspiration!

I saw this piece at a store and determined this may be a growing trend.

In my world, I like to believe that these pieces were either put together from leftover materials or have some interesting and harrowing history instead of being manufactured in a factory.

So that is what I choose to believe about this picture currently being circulated on Pinterest and tumblr.  Its colors are vibrant and captivating and could tell an adventurous story.
