I just got upgraded to a bigger cube at work and I am planning to decorate it so it is THE most fabulous office cube in state government!  My theory is why spend all day surrounded by ugly?  That has GOT to effect your mood and productivity!

So, I was wondering two things:

1.  Have any of you decorated your office cubes and if so what have you done to make them liveable?

2.  What suggestions do you have to make a drab government office cube fabulous?

I can't wait to hear what you all come up with!

*definitely does not work in a cube, hasnt seen one in quite some time*
they're made of stuff you can stick pins in though, right? Could you fabric the walls? Obviously couldnt paint or wallpaper, but maybe you could put up fabric...of course, it might get a little tricky working around the desk.  Hmm...

My "deluxe cube" has two real walls and two cube walls.  It comes with this cube table thing and a traditional desk. I'm going to try to post pictures later tonight.  I brought my camera to work today for ye olde work baby shower so I took a few moments to document the true horror of the before cube!

You can't really put push pins into these cube walls for some reason. But....you CAN clip things over the top so hooking fabric up that way might work.

Mine is decorated with loads and loads of silkscreened gigposter art. I also have a few flyers and cool post cards/photographs, etc. On my bookshelf, I have a few binders and a dictionary, and the rest of the space is all kinds of toys (simpsons, pez, vintage lunchboxes, hot wheels, etc.). Beneath that, I have a bulletin board, which has more cool postcards, bumper stickers, pins, etc. on it. Also on my bookshelf, I have a lot of marble magnets holding up pics. I also have a magnet that a friend made that is a closeup of a slide of "erythroid hyperplasia" (too many red blood cells?) that is totally pretty, an elvis magnet from graceland, a KY BLUEGRASS STATE magnet, and a magnet that the Lady Chablis gave me a few derbys ago. Also, in the corner of my cube, behind where my computer and junk are, I have a pink lawn flamingo with it's head peeping over the corner.

One of my coworkers had her old cube wallpapered in retro Victorian wrapping paper. Also, even though push pins don't work, STRAIGHT PINS DO! You just has to use them with a downward angle.

Straight pins!!!  GENIUS!!! 

I just think it is bad for you to be surrounded by ugly for this many hours a day every day!

My friend keeps teasing me... "When are you moving from the single wide to the double wide?"  Cube humor I suppose.....

heheheh that is awesome! 

Right now I have this amendment from a bill from the (Florida)Legislative session from a couple of years ago that would have required the port-a-potty guy/girl to be an apprentice for two years before he/she could be THE port-a-potty guy/girl!!!  I have it to remind me that things could ALWAYS be worse!  I could be the port-a-potty apprentice!! 

I don't think it passed.

I make copies of it for people when they are having truly crappy days.

As promised!!! Here are pictures of The Deluxe Cube aka The Double Wide!

Notes:
I'm thinking the BIG HUGE desk has to go! It won't work with a computer very well. Plus there is zero leg room which won't work for a fidgeter like me!  I'm thinking a plain 6 foot table with a two drawer filing cabinet under it for storage all covered with a Velcro fabric attached skirt. It all depends on what I can secure at the fabled state warehouse!  I cannot wait to go and dig through that place!!! It has GOT to be a goldmine!

Consider this your tour de cube!

From the doorway:



From the back lefthand corner:



From the back righthand corner:
The big X in the background is covering a co-worker's name.


From kind of sort of next to that big old desk!  Taken from that corner.


Idea for a hanging mechanism
I thought this sort of thing could work to hang fabric on the drab walls since push pins don't work.  I'm also considering Velcro.


The secret of the hanging mechanism:



Just so you know how DELUX the new cube really is, here is my current cube complete with the filling cabinet that does not fit so it sat in the middle....well sort of off to the side!
The black stuff is my attempt to conceal anything that I could get in trouble for posting on the web.



So, this concludes your tour de cube!  Any ideas!?!
