When You’re on a Budget but Need a Desk Update

When you are on a budget but your desk desperately needs an update, don’t worry! You are in luck! There are some very easy tips to update your desk quickly and money efficiently!

 

First, go onto google and search whatever images you like such as flowers, pets, or geographical landmarks. Then, print out your favorite picture and trace your mouse pad onto it! Once you have it traced, cut it out and glue it onto your mouse pad. Use some sticky plastic to cover the paper and cut the excess from the edge.

 

Second, make a really cute calendar by opening Word and making a 7×6 table. Label the top column with Monday-Friday and then the rest with the corresponding days of the month. Change the font style, size, and color to whatever you prefer. Move the column to the bottom of the page and add the month to the top with whatever font and picture you prefer!

 

Last, get some modeling clay and roll it out into a log shape. Get another one, whatever color you like, and roll it out to the same size. Twist them together and roll them out together to help incorporate them. Fold it in half, twisting it again, and then roll out another smaller colored piece if desired, to add. Make it into a ball and flatten it. Place any shape paper on top and cut out that shape in the clay. Follow Wengie instructions to bake it and paint the edge if desired. You now have coasters for your desk!

There you have it, your DIY desk update on a budget!
