Cubicles Suck... A Makeover

So it's been a hectic and emotional week. I am finally starting to feel myself again after an emotional job change. Change is good but I often fear it.

I arrived to my new job on Monday to see this.



This may look normal to some people but for me this is about as depressing as it gets. I am someone who is very effected by my environment, i love the outdoors and I also need windows and natural light.

So needless to say when you drive an hour to get to work ... You need a place to welcome and inspire you and this wasn't working for me so...

I decided I could cry about it or I could change it.
( I am pretty sure this is a quote from Pinterest )

Here is the After











I still have a little to do but I am feeling much better about my little corner if the world.

I hope you have a great week!

This looks great! Is that fabric you used for the walls? If so, how did you adhere the fabric?

Thanks!

@hollypockett thank you! I used an Ikea curtain and cut it up then used scissors to shove it under the cubicle rim to make it stay.

I love, love, love your creativity. Could you please give more details about how you got the fabric to stay. I'm not sure my cubicle has "rims". TIA

Very pretty ideas! I have an office, but it's more like cubicle furniture placed in a room. So, I definitely need some ideas. Love your pics n the right-nav area. Very cute and clever. You look like a happy person! :-)
