Some Serious Workspace Wednesday Inspiration

Last week, my jaw dropped when I found images of SeeSaw’s office space. Wowzer. A complete breath of fresh air that left me feeling like I needed to do a major overhaul on my own workspace. So, I immediately emailed them to ask for permission to re-post and here we are.

While we can’t all have a studio as amazing as this one, there are some easy ways to get the look with a couple of DIY tricks. So, grab a pen. Here we go…

DIY Trick No. 1: The Bookshelf. Feeling bookshelf envy right about now? Yeah, me too. The girls at SeeSaw actually built this themselves using this tutorial from The Brick House. And you can too with just about $200 and a whole lot of elbow grease.

DIY Trick No. 2: A new take on the message board. Use a roll of chicken wire and some clothespins for an instant memo board. Attach artwork, notes to yourself, whatever.

DIY Trick No. 3: The muted art wall. Tape off your own design and paint with a muted color, like the beautiful grey you see here, for a subtle focal point that everyone will be talking about. How many people are going to run to the paint store and try this today?

DIY Trick No. 4: Don’t be afraid to bring your personality into the space with some colorful artwork or a vintage mannequin for example, even if you have clients to entertain. Chances are, they’ll appreciate it as much as you do.

So, there you have it. Four easy tips for your workspace spruce up. Thanks so much to Rachel and the gang for letting me re-post images of their space.

Wow for the first time ever I’m actually ahead of the game – I too used chicken wire and mini-pegs for a pinboard about 5 years ago, except I backed mine with some inspiring images too, like a mood board. Sadly I can’t find any photos or I would have posted you the link. Their space is gorgeous isn’t it? Ahhh to have that much square footage to play with…

Oh, that’s awesome Sally. If you do find a picture, I’d love to see it. I have been thinking about using chicken wire myself after seeing this project. It would fill up a huge wall easily…free artwork. I like it!

Thank you so much for linking to the tutorial for DIY trick 1. I spotted this shelving unit a few weeks ago in a different post and have been dreaming of it in my Study but couldn’t figure out how to do it.

Have a lovely day!
