The office can be one hectic place. It brings out the best and the worst in people. There will be busy days and there will be days that might just bore you to death. If you find yourself with nothing to do then you might as well stop facing your computer screen and do something more creative.

This is what two bored co workers did during one of their slowest days.

Chris Limbrick and Francesco Fragomeni from Squarespace New York did one of the most creative ways to fight off boredom in their office. Their official project is named “Fools do Art.” Instead of wallowing in the pit of boredom these two got creative with none other than their very own office supplies.

The rule of the project is that they’d recreate famous paintings with none other than the office supplies. The editing would be done on their smartphones.

Not bad? If you find yourself bored, try this game. You would be surprised just how much office supplies you have stashed away from the whole office’s sight.

Here just some of their “masterpieces.”
