Welcome to a treasure trove of DIY home office ideas. Today we're showcasing 10 Bricolage Crafts specifically for embellishing your workspace at home. These crafts will not only increase your productivity by making your environment more pleasant and organized, but they'll also be a fun outlet for your creativity.
1. Tin Can Organizers
Don't throw away those empty tin cans, instead repurpose them into stylishly rustic tin can organizers for your home office. To start, clean out the cans and remove any sharp edges. Then, using paint or patterned paper, decorate the cans to match the theme of your office. Once dry, these tins can hold pens, pencils, scissors, rulers, or any other office supplies that tend to clutter desks.
2. Corkboard Wall
Why settle for a small corkboard when you could have an entire corkboard wall? This is a larger project that involves attaching cork tiles to a wall in your home office. On this wall, you can pin important notes, to-do lists, calendars, or even images that inspire you. The natural, earthy look of the cork can also add warmth to your workspace.
3. Floating Shelves
Float shelves are a great DIY project that can create more storage and display space in your home office, while also adding some style. They're easy to install and can be painted or coated to match your office's color scheme. Use them to store books, display plants, keep tools, and more.
4. Wire Bulletin Boards
Step away from the traditional cork bulletin board and create a modern, sleek wire bulletin board. Using wire grid panels, you can clip on notes, photographs, or decoration pieces. It's a minimalist and functional addition to your home office.
5. DIY Desk
If you're not keen about the regular office desks on the market, why not build your own custom desk? You can repurpose old wooden doors or pallets, creating a work surface that sits atop two filing cabinets or sawhorses. Put your own touch on it with a fresh coat of paint or varnish.
6. Jar Storage
Another great way to organize your home office is by using jars. Large glass jars can be used to store stationery and other smaller office supplies. You can paint the jars, label them or adorn them with ribbons to match the office decor.
7. Pallet Bookshelf
If you have some spare wooden pallets, you could use them to build a unique and rustic bookshelf for your office. Sand down the pallet, apply a coat of paint or varnish, and anchor it on the wall. It's a fun, simple craft that adds storage and character to your space.
A fabric-covered pinboard can be a great addition to your home office where you can tack important notes or inspirational images. Choose a fabric that compliments your office decor, cover a plain board, and secure it at the back. Then place it in a fancy frame and hang it near your working spot.
9. Desktop Organizer
For those who prefer a clean and clutter-free workspace, a desktop organizer is a must. You can DIY one using wooden boxes or even sturdy cardboard boxes. Paint and glue them together to create an organizer that fits your tools and workspace perfectly.
10. DIY Lamp
Proper lighting is key in any office space. A lamp with character could add a lovely touch to your office. Whether it's transforming an old lamp with a new shade or configuring a completely unique light fixture with materials like wire, wood, or mason jars, a DIY lamp can be an illuminating project.
