15 DIY Office Decor Ideas To Be More Organized

15 DIY office decor ideas that'll make you more productive and organized

One big problem I’ve always had is focusing on what I have to work on. And that happens whether it’s school or hobby related. However, my productivity changed when I finally decided to rearrange my workspace. All I did was improve the organization of my desk and of my room in general. And I did that thanks to some very simple DIY office decor ideas.

In the past, my workroom was literally a mess. The desk was always disorganized and full of things I didn’t need, plus it was in a dark spot of the room. Another big problem was the fact that my bookcase was not big enough. This meant that many books were just laying around, everywhere.

All those factors led to me distracting every two minutes and not being able to accomplish my goals for the day.

I decided it was time for a change and I started looking up on Pinterest for some ideas that could give a new look to my workspace. It’s unbelievable how many DIY office decor ideas you can find online!

These changes made me become way more productive and I almost stopped procrastinating. So, I felt like I needed to share these amazing DIY office decor ideas with you guys. I know how frustrating it can be when you’re trying to accomplish something but you can’t focus on it.

Here is my list of the top 15 DIY office decor ideas that’ll make you more productive and organized:

  1. Oh my gosh! I love I love the succulent bookends and that wall organizer! I have a corner desk already so I’ll have to make it pretty and fun like the one you shared!

  2. I love your makeover. Your wall clock is especially beautiful and functional. One of my biggest challenges is that since I am so visual, I keep a stack of piles on my desk, because if it’s out of my sight, then it’s out of mind. I am trying to do better at maintaining planner lists, but I still have to have a visual placeholder of what is a priority and pending.

  3. I absolutely love the Catch-all, mostly because of the rose-gold, but there are quite a few things I love, from the desk organizer, print station to wall art. Definitely had to pin this one to my DIY page to come back later. Love it.
