After revamping my workspace last year, (post on that coming real soon), I found myself absolutely loving the little bits that made it feel mostly unique and personal to me. A space that was styled to the point where it felt like it had my name written all over it…(literally!) When you work from home, I find one of the most difficult challenges is to remember that it has to be an environment that enables you to get s*** done and not a place that constantly reminds you of all the endless amounts of chores you are yet to find the energy to complete. (Defeatedly staring at the enormous pile of ironing as I write.) Having a few little details personalised to you is a great way to keep you focused and feeling pretty awesome about the goals your trying to achieve. As some of you know Branding has always been a pretty big deal to me so I thought why not use it as an excuse to replace the teeny tiny coaster I’ve been using for god knows how long as a make shift mouse pad for a more practical DIY one, incorporating my logo at the same time of course. Happy Days.
I’ve seen a few of these tutorials floating around just using any desired material to cover the front but if your going to go to the effort of DIY’ing then you may as well go the full hog and personalise it by adding this simple additional step. I think it’s well worth it and def a way to show off your own personal style with whatever particular branding your into.
Simply follow these steps paying particular to some of the details as they make a difference in the final results!
