Refreshing my Desk Space - making my dollar work harder at Officeworks.

We're on the last day or 2 of our renovations and I can't wait to get home and start putting everything back into place. It has been a great opportunity to clean out any unwanted items and I'm looking forward to rearranging furniture and giving everything a little refresh.

One of the spaces I can't wait to style is my office space.  You have seen plenty of photos of my old desk space but towards the end it became a bit of a dumping ground and I hated walking in and seeing a messy desk. Also as it was in quite a visible spot, I really needed to organise a better system.

My desk space as seen in Adore Home Magazine coffee table book.

I packed my old desk away and used the space for a set of drawers to store my cutlery, platters, entertaining stuff and I've found a new nook for a little desk and a designated spot for my work. I can't wait to show you the finished space once we've moved back in and are settled.

I was approached by Officeworks to put together some options for a desk refresh for varying budgets.
I've put together options for under $50, under $100 and under $200.

There is so much to choose from at Officeworks. From office furniture, storage ideas, desk accessories, stationery, fresh pencils and paper (my favourite!) The prices are so reasonable, such great value for money. Your dollar certainly works harder here. We also buy all the kids school supplies from Officeworks too as there is such a great variety.

My favourite piece that I bought was the Kallis Computer desk for $21.75!! It fits perfectly in my space and I've jazzed it up a little by painting the legs gold! Can't wait to show you :)

Here are a few pics of desk spaces I'm using for Inspiration....
I'm all about the neutral spaces at the moment.

Desk Refresh for under $50

1. Large Square tin - perfect for stationery bits and bobs you want hidden - here

2. A5 Felt Diary - I love the colour and also the day to page - here

3. Clear Pencil caddy - here

4. Black folders for hiding paperwork - here

5. Kallis Computer Desk - here  I've sprayed my desk legs gold and it looks stunning!

6. A4  Clipboard  x 2 - perfect for displaying inspiration pics, calendars, art etc - here

Desk Refresh for under $100

I would include all the items above and add the following

7. Acrylic mini stapler - cute and I love that it matches the other desk accessories - here

8. Acrylic 2 hole punch - here

9. Desk lamp - I love that this lamp comes in so many different colours - here

Also a lovely bunch of flowers to add that pop of colour. Laptop, glasses and artwork my own.

All of the above 9 items come to the total of $100. I think that is such great value for money.  Plus I love the fact you can get furniture, stationery and desk accessories from the one place.
So with my last $100 to spend I would add the following items to my picks above - 

Desk refresh for under $200

10. Scissors - here

11. Highlighters - here

12. White desk chair - here

It's amazing how you can change the whole look of your work space and get so many useful items with as little as $200.

How is your desk space looking? Could it do with a little refresh?
Is there any particular item you swear by to keep you organised?

  2. Working from office is a very good option as you are saving the rental charges for your office. If you want virtual office space, meeting room, business address for your office for professional business meetings you can hire office for your business as per hourly basis or according to your requirement.
