I picked it up and started glancing through it. It was awesome!! This book had "information" on EVERYTHING!! Check out the copyright date!
Well, I knew I wanted to incorporate this book in a fun way. So the wheels, they started turnin! Then I found these shelving units at Target.
"Would it work??? It would be stinkin' HUGE! But huge could be good! But it would be HUGE!!!" Oh sorry that was the conversation going on in my head when this idea started coming together.
Anyway, I decided to get two of the shelves and my sweet hubs said he would build a desk top for me. You following so far? Yeah, you guessed it... those awesome pages are gonna get to know some Mod Podge real well!! So I made a HUGE desk decoupaged with little nuggets of wisdom from 1953. You wanna see how it turned out?? I thought you would ;)
Here are a couple more views of the office.
I think they like it. And then I get to look at this precious view while I'm working!
I made myself a couple of cute pillows, one for my "reading nook" with a vintage camera on it. (I used the same transfer paper as for my pottery barn pillows)
Then just a burlap pillow with my initials "sharpied" on.
Whew! Anyone still here..... anyone.....anyone.....crickets! Well, overall I am pleased. I am really enjoying my new office space. I would still love to add a few more pops of color here and there, but I am glad the hard work is done! Now onto the dining room. Yeah it's getting a little nip/tuck done as well. She was just so jealous that the new office was getting so much attention!
