Below are the pictures of the transformation to my Tiny Working Office.
I needed to make my office a place that students would enjoy visiting. So I started with making this sterile room into a visually inviting room. I bought chalk-paper contact paper from Walmart and covered the doors on my cabinets. Then I hand drew all the posters with chalk markers.
Next, I was gifted a file cabinet that has to be older than my first born. It was rusty and dented. No problem! I covered it with the same chalk-board contact paper and added some spray painted 8 x 10 frames from the Dollar Tree. For fun I labeled each of my drawers with a little reminder to Smile, Laugh, Inspire , and Relax.
For my bulletin board, I plan on adding pictures that I take throughout the year to my board.
Finally, the overhead fluorescent lighting was just too much. So I added garden lighting to soften the look.
To take care of my storage and seating for small group challenges, I purchased lots of dual use items. Notice the stools. The lids come off to reveal all the supplies needed for small groups. Decorative cloth boxes fill the bookshelves to hold more supplies. So far, I have been able to hold groups as large as 6 so I think I will be ok!
