Thank you to Renuzit and Homegoods for providing me with product to complete my Mini Office Makeover. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
I have a confession to make, I had a disorganized home office. Whether it was due to lack of space or lack of proper equipment, it was a mess. It is still a work in progress, however I now have a much neater space due to my Mini Office Makeover!
In addition to being a Mom, Wife, and Blogger, I am also the Box Tops and Labels for Education Coordinator for my children’s school. That means I get a lot of plastic bags filled with UPCs and various papers. So while I wait to batch them, I have to store the items and have an eye sore under my desk. I don’t mind doing it at all, but it would be nice to find a better solution to the clutter.
When I was recently given an opportunity from Renuzit to shop at Homegoods to find organization or home upgrade items, I decided it was time to tackle this area. To get started, I first picked out my favorite color of Renuzit Pearl Scents. I happen to be a big fan of the green variety called “Sparkling Rain”, plus the color and scent reminds me of nature and gardening.
It was then time to take a trip up to Homegoods. I already had an idea of what I wanted to do, so before I left I measured my desk around the front 3 sides and the height. My hopes was to find a tablecloth that would fold and adhere to the outside.
While shopping, I found a Oblong 52X70 Designer Tablecloth by Max Studio in the Kitchen Area. I then visited the storage area and found 2 thin square boxes that could slide underneath my desk. Finally I wanted to add some comfort to my office, so I picked up a feather filled pillow by Devi Designs with my initial C.
Before I could even begin to decorate though, I needed something to help stick the tablecloth. I visited a craft store and picked up 2 – VELCRO Brand – Sticky Back – 7/8″ Squares, 12 Sets – Clear.
To get the Tablecloth to stay, I first put on one side of the Velcro. I then removed the backing of the other side and placed it on. Next, I laid the Tablecloth across and carefully removed the top pieces of Velcro leaving them attached to the tablecloth.
After that, I did an X Stitch across each square to keep it attached.
In the meantime my in-laws gave us an antique chair, so I switch it in and added my new pillow. Finally I utilized my new boxes to help clean-up the area. My Mini Office Makeover was then complete.
