This photo is full of great, inexpensive office ideas. Cover that less-than-lovely work surface with a sheet or tablecloth for instant glamour and a quick way to create a neutral tone for your whole space. White not your thing? Maybe a natural canvas or warm nubby brown fabric would work better for you.
Use a sheet of plywood propped up as a place to hang your inspiration, notes and research. In this white-on-white-on-white space, the warm natural wood really take center stage.
