Office design isn’t just about looks — although I do like pretty things! It’s also about getting work done.
A lot of studies show a connection between a comfortable work environment and increased productivity. Of course, if you’re like me, a comfortable work environment means an attractive one!
I like to design rooms with character, and my latest concrete creations take three home office essentials — drawer pulls, the pen cup and the phone stand — and gives them some personality.
Cute and functional? That’s my kind of project. Follow along if you’re ready for an office refresh!

Notes: Always wear pants, a long-sleeve shirt, safety glasses and gloves while working with concrete mix.
Also, I created all three of these projects from one bag of concrete mix. I mixed the concrete and prepped each project’s form, one after the other, to stay efficient.
