Extreme Cubicle Makeover

Sabbatical is a time for hard working men and women to step out of the workplace and indulge in some much needed rest and relaxation. It is also a time for their loving co-workers to show their appreciation through cubicle makeovers such as these!

Aluminum MasterpieceThe Aluminum Foil Makeover

This was sent to me by Nilit (Chandler Main Campus) and is my favorite so far. There are around 6 additional photos (not shown) with close-ups of various items and trust me, nothing was spared. Every inch of this cubicle, from the lanyard to the markers, were covered in glorious Aluminum Foil. The only things that were spared were the trash and recycle bin which most likely were left untouched just in case the owner opts to remodel in the future and upgrade to Saran wrap.

Water Cups GaloreThe Water Cooler Makeover

This cubicle makeover is reminiscent of a contemporary Andy Warhol piece. What it lacks in creativity, it makes up for in sheer volume and disdain. At the least, this engineer will be happy to find that he will not have to make those long and arduous trips to the water fountain anytime soon. My only gripe is that they should have included a bedpan or package of Depends undergarments for the ultimate in cubicle convenience.

Surf and Turf!The Surf and Turf Makeover

It is hard to believe, but someone actually went through the trouble of hauling some sand up to the 3rd floor to complete this makeover. It is a little difficult to see, but there is a large inflatable palm tree and full size umbrella sitting in the cube along with a tiki torch and inflatable shark. The only thing missing is a small body of water and a tanning bed.

Unfortunately, these are all the pictures I have at the moment. If you have any links to some cool cubicle makeovers, feel free to share them via a comment!

    Hey Jared, the cubicle makeover looks great! Looks like you got some nice exposure and traffic too. 😉

  4. The funny part is, I could code a zillion lines of code and launch websites that make millions (like I did on the Yahoo! sports shop project)… and get no attention at all. But I dress up my cubicle and voila! 1,142% growth in hits on my blog.

    Funny… and backwards 🙂

    I anticipate doing a tin foil cubicle (to someone else naturally) in my future… Very funny.

    I really enjoy your blog.
