These past few days, I have been rearranging, redesigning, resetting my office. I spend a lot of time in that room and wanted it to be more spacious. Lately, it had become very unpractical, uninspirational, and cluttered.
I am loving the new airy layout ~photos coming up next week~, and now I am working on bringing some colors to this room!
I had this desktop dry erase calendar for a while, but as you can see, I hadn't used it since September.
Really, the main reason is that it is not easy to clean ~need nail polish remover~. Since I had this, I thought I should put it to good use instead of letting it collect dust!
Black is kind of over rated lately. I have a lot of black furniture in the office ~and throughout the house~ so I figured adding some pop of bright cheerful colors could be a nice balance. I recently fell in love with light blues and greens ~robin's egg blue is gorgeous!~ and being a Stella & Dot Stylist certainly reinforces my appreciation for these colors. ;)
Giving my calendar a faceliftFirst, I covered it with silver washi tape to mask the black and flowery designs.
Next, I covered the borders of the board with my favorite washi tape.
I'm really digging this new fresh color!
Here is the new, more practical way I use this so called "dry-erase" calendar.
So that I don't have to deal with getting nail polish remover each time I need to erase something, I use sticky notes to write my task and stick it where it belongs.
I am using this board as a weekly to-do list instead of the previous monthly calendar. Each task is now adjustable. If I have to postpone making Life In Positudiness planners to later that day or even another day, I'll just move my sticky note. I keep the board right on my desk, by my laptop to have a quick and easy access to it!
Isn't that a nice way to be organized?!
I am curious, what do you use your washi tapes for? How do you use them?
What is your favorite washi tape project you have ever done?
Let's share the washi goodness!! Leave a comment here, or post a picture on Instagram with the hashtag #lipwashi. I'll feature your pictures on my Instagram on Friday!
