my desk has been a work in progress since i bought it. i've never had it like i wanted it and, since i spend so much time at it, i had to get it looking right. i didn't get a before pictures, but i think i've posted one before. i really just needed something hanging above my extra large computer to balance it out.
i remembered i had this huge bulletin board that my mom gave me to use for something else. i brought it in and it was the perfect size. i also had a table cloth that a friend gave me. i've wanted to use it because i love it and it matches perfectly, but couldn't find the right spot for it. i know. table cloths go on tables. but i can't have one on mine. not with all these kids. i'd have to wash it every day.
so i stapled it to the bulletin board. i'm in love once again.
i still need to get it organized and the "stuff" put in the right spots. that'll change constantly i'm sure. i want cute stuff on there, pictures, my weekly menu. but i'm not real sure how i want it just yet, but how cute is it already?!? it worked out so good. i already had the antique bicycle basket hanging on the right. i've wanted to use it for so long and haven't really had a spot for it either. it works perfectly for our checkbook binder and my receipts holder.
and, the chair MUST be accessorized to match the bulletin board somehow, right? we thought about making a seat cushion, but i'm really liking this final touch.
yep. a piece of the table cloth tied in a simple knot. i'm also going to try to make a few pillows for my couch to tie it all into the living room. PLUS ... another free project. i had/was given everything i used. my mister is loving this!
