Eco Expert Candice Batista is here with upcycling ideas for your home office.
Repurpose your mason jars into a fun wall mounted stationary holder. Place the jars about 6 inches apart. Grab a piece of wood and paint it a colour you like. Drill holes into the wood for the brackets. You can pick the brackets up at any hardware store, once the holes are drilled you put the brackets into the wall, place the jars in the brackets and tighten as much as the jars allows. Hang on the wall.
Upcycle tin cans into fun stationary holders, wash them very well, then wrap them with scarps of wrapping paper, newspaper, magazine cut out etc. Glue the paper to the can with a glue gun or double sided tape, then stack them and glue them together.
I took a bunch of different sized cans, washed them, sprayed painted them, make sure to do 2 coats and let then dry for at least 2 hours, using a glue gun, glue them together, great for paper clips, elastic bands, staples, USB keys, etc.
We all have these lying around, all I did was slightly bend playing cards and place then in the holes. This makes for a great pencil or pen holder.
Before you throw out the dish drying rack, think about using it for storage, I love this because you can move it around, and you can work in different areas of the hose, its great in the kitchen too – you can use it for recipes etc.
Stack and glue a bunch of round cork prices together, drill in a few holes and use this as a stationary holder.
Every office needs one, take and old metal tray, paint the inside with chalk paint and now you have this cute reminder board.
