Brightening a Drab Cubicle

Today's post is brought to you by the letter "M"!

 
My "office" is a very generic cubicle in a building filled with them.  Fabric walls, a filing cabinet, a couple of shelves overhead,
 
B O R I N G !
 
There is a small amount of space though for a bit of customization!  A bold punch of color is just what my cubicle world needs!  ;-)  And so, another project begins!


A couple of wooden letters were found for 50 cents each at a yard sale.  Total score!  Of course I couldn't decide which I liked better so both were purchased!  My fabulous Aunt Margie encouraged me to layer to two of them together.

 
 They each received a zap of spray paint.  Next were some doodles with my paint pens on the orange "M".  It's hard to tell in the photo, but the dots are green and the inner lines are purple.  I think you can see the outer lines are yellow.
 
 
 
 My cubicle is definitely a little brighter!

How about you?  What's making your days brighter?
