Here is a simple, fun, cheap, easy, adorable, super-cool way to spruce up your desk area. This literally took me 5 minutes to make. No Joke. My SIL was in town and when she is here that means AUNT AMY COOKS AND I GET THE NIGHT OFF!! Woohoo! She comes to stay with us when she has work in the Orlando area. That is several times a year (thank goodness). When I tell the family that she has ‘booked’ a room at McCall Manor for a night, Buster immediately asks “Is she fixing spaghetti?” (before you ask–no, our spaghetti isn’t broken. We are southern and we fix meals)
So, while Aunt Amy was fixing her famous spaghetti in the kitchen I took that time to work on this easy project.
Here are the supplies that you will need:
Desk Pad from Ikea ($5.99)
1/2 yard of fabric (mine was $3 at JoAnn’s)
Iron any wrinkles out of your fabric and smooth it out on a flat surface.
Spray the adhesive on the back side of the desk pad.
Lay your desk pad on your fabric making sure to keep it straight and smooth.
Trim the edges.
I added our last initial so that none of my ‘friends’ would try and steal it. 😉
No one in my family rolled their eyes over this project!! Score!!!
What do you think about my personalized desk blotter? Are YOU rolling your eyes at me?
