One of my passions in life is traveling. I love to explore new places, crazy adventures, and beautiful cultures. I don't work for the weekends ... I work for the trips.
I have a home office that has yet to be decorated or organized. If you were to see my home office you would think "she has a desk in a bedroom". For the record, I don't like your judgmental tone. But I am making progress on the room. Over the Christmas break I created a piece of furniture that ties in my love of travel and offers room for organization.
My home office has (will have) a travel theme. I like to buy artwork on my international travels and I plan to have all of them hung with care in my office. Having a travel theme in my home office reminds me why I love my job (I have a boss who encourages my travel and a flexible career that offers me time away) and why I want to work harder at being the best for my company. Plus, each item from my trips remind me of fond memories with friends and relaxing days enjoying new surroundings.
The furniture piece is made from repurposed material. Some of the material I had on hand and others I bought at Home Depot. The entire project cost me $55. In addition to the materials listed below I used Mod Podge to attach the maps to the filing cabinet.
