need to decorate my office

ok so i've had an office for a while and its still plain as crap. cars and racing is the way i would like to do it but i want it to look classy, most motorsport oriented stuff i find online is classless and trashy looking.

anyone know of any good places to get good office decor that will not look too lame.

Have you thought of bringing in a professional? You don't seem like the type of person that knows what you want. Decorating spaces is about self awareness and the need to personalize things. People who don't decorate their spaces tend to be more interested in meat and potatoes as opposed to the icing on the cake, if you know what I mean.

In other words, if you want it done, you might save yourself a lot of time energy and money by having someone help you.

customers dont come to my office, i'm usually at thiers. its more for me. its not even an "office" per say. but a glorifed cubicle. i'm an account manager and when i'm not out checking on my customers i'm in here placing orders, fixing problems etc etc.

dont really want to hire a pro since its not MY office and just needs a few touches

Go to your local movie rental store and see if they have old posters. If you are into posters at all, because I don't think framed art will look good in a bricked walled cubicle... check Amazon.. I see posters/art on there all the time for 1 penny plus shipping... just bought some Red Sox ones the other day for the man cave.

i like the idea of the "quality ones" but they run like $200+ so a shelf of 3 will be over $600

I decorated mine with tons of photos. A rug would dress up the floor. Just get a clear mat so your chair can roll.
