How to Redecorate the Office When Everyone is Gone

Featured
Have you ever shown up to work at 10:30 on Friday morning and went looking to see if anyone else wants to go get donuts with you only to discover there is not a single living human-being in the entire office?

Only then, you check your calendar and remember that April 17th is National Cheeseball Day. Why did no one remind you!?

Well, perhaps the day is not a total loss. If everyone is gone, then there is no one to object to your plan to redecorate the office.

Here is how to redecorate your workplace on those days when you show up to find yourself completely alone (and without objection).

Step 2: Decide what needs changing

Look around the office and decide what is in need of changing or "brightening up."

Go room to room and take note of what could use a little "livening."


Step 3: Improve fan art

Nothing says "biggest fan" like a giant picture of yourself. Take down all of that other puny 8.5" x 11" fan art and set it aside for a later date for safe-keeping.

It's now time to show your boss how big of a fan you are!

Rasterbate a giant image of yourself and tack it to the wall! Everyone will be thankful you did!

Step 4: Livin' it up

Yarn can effectively brighten up any boring old office and if you're like me, you have 300 extra skeens just lying around.

Look how well it worked for Noahw's fabulous office.

He will surely be highly appreciative that I took such careful consideration in adding a touch of subtle color to his desk, chair and ceiling fixtures. How could anyone not be?

Awesome 'ible. Parts of it really made me laugh. Especially when I went to the Rasterbator website. There is an online version. Or you can "Rasterbate" offline with any resolution.. yeah.. maybe a new name.. Still.. Nice 'ible; keep up the good work.

Well on seeing the preview image for this instructable i thought you had ceramic tiles above your desk and you had drawn that image with a whiteboard marker, god knows why i thought that. Seems i can be very, very wrong haha

YES! Long live RASTERBATOR! And offices like that, too.
...and here's my pretty girlfriend rasterbated!

Once, I told my high school art teacher about the Rasterbator. Then, the last time I went checking the school (I graduated), its wall was covered with raterbation projects from student. It was very nice, a good change; the school was pityful and (more) boring otherwise.

It was not nicwe of the his office family to leave and not tell him. I bet his feeling were so hurt that he sat down and cried for along itme before he pushed away his anger and decided to brighten things up. What a kind forgiving person he is.. And all this kindess will come back to him 10 fold. Maj
If your are going to create a mural out of a bunch of sheets of letter paper, I'd suggest using http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/

Here is an example on the one I made:
