10 Ways to Refresh Your Home Office

10 Ways to Refresh Your Home Office

Now more than ever we are spending more time in our home office or makeshift home office. We've spent over a year away from our co-workers working in our private domain and it's getting old. We can bet that you are getting tired of the same scenery and decor, so it's time to mix it up! Grab your paintbrush and craft glue cause we are revamping your space! 

We are here to offer up some exciting ways to bring life back to your home office so you can reset and feel comfortable in your personal work space. Now I'm sure you're asking yourself, how can I redo my home office without breaking the bank? We can ensure you that you can make your space look stylish and high-end on a shoestring budget. Everything we are going to talk about today is a thrifted piece that was then upcycled to add a touch of color and uniqueness to your office.

And to refresh each piece of furniture we used everything from FolkArt Home Decor Chalk to Mod Podge! We pride ourselves our providing you with the highest quality products at an affordable price so you can let your imagination create without the limitations of cost.  

We've got several product lines are specifically made for home decor projects including FolkArt Home Decor Chalk, FolkArt One Decor, and our newest line FolkArt Sign Shop exclusively sold at Michaels. Watch the introductory videos below to learn more about each brand. 


Without further ado, here are 10 easy ways to refresh your home office!

Dive right in and begin by upgrading the thing you use the most...your desk! Add a bold color with beautiful gold accents to really make your desk a statement piece in your office. Believe it or not this desk was 3 separate furniture pieces combined into one. 

Take a boring filing cabinet and make it stand out with some FolkArt Home Decor Chalk and Mod Podge. The flower embellishments on this upcycled cabinet are scrapbook paper! You can't get much more affordable than that. 

Create simple organizing bins for your desk out of beautifully painted vases. 

Transform an old frame into a trendy floral calendar for added charm to your work day. 

Upcycle a basic clock to have a handmade touch with Mod Podge Hard Coat.

Add some greenery to your desk with hand-painted pastel tin planters. These are the perfect way to add some charm work space. 

Organize your work space with a completely custom piece using old table legs and dresser drawers. Check out how we made it on TikTok now! And make sure to follow us while you are there.
