Cute little fishy mini-office redo! (Photo heavy)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

So my bedroom is huge and done in black and white comic/urban. Framed cityscapes, comic frames, and my favorite piece of abstract art.

My 40gal is ancient and was purchased used so it's in my bedroom. Today I replaced my oldest of the two ex45's with an aqueon 30, purchsed a new zoomed tropical sun bulb and made a kinda sub par white background.

The fish had been getting shy and I wanted a little workspace close to them, where I could be zen and they could get some more attention. I was on a budget so here we go:

Chair and table- 10$ at ValueVillage

White shelf- 5$ at a yard sale

Black and chrome bins- 6$ at Dollarama

Office supplies- 11$ Total at Dollarama

Two posters and some laminate (background)- 4$ at dollarama

Pothos babies- free, clips from the massive mama plant in my living room

Thought I'd share! Here are some pics and thanks for looking ♡

Wow, you have such a cute office! The fish tank really makes a nice touch. It looks very relaxing. :)

I wish my room was that neat and organized. :o:tomuch:

Thank you! :) I drive the other half crazy, but if my house is tidy there's room for me to be scatter brained!

Looks great!!

Thanks :) I figured it wouldn't be a bad way to spend 40$! Plus my fishy stuff was super disorganized before the redo. Took me 30 mins just to re-roll my fishing line lol

Lovely interior! I believe that it is very handy for you- after hard work in the office to take a break with a cup of coffee and relaxing in front of the tank.

Thanks! I work outside of home, but I write, still take an occasional course and draw so I had to have an office corner :) I do find them peaceful and I was worried they were lonely lol Edited by ActiasAmy

I think I might tweak it more but I was getting pretty tuckered by the time I drained, rearranged, and refilled the tank

Lucky you! :hi5

My hubby and I made a bet. If I could get a desk/chair/office supplies (and it had to match our room of course) for under 40$ he'd buy my tanks bulb. If I was over I'd buy my new bulb. Free bulbs are my favorite bulbs :P Edited by ActiasAmy
