Work in Progress Wednesday

Going up early, since I don’t think I’ll have a chance to upload tomorrow.  I’ll resume the saga of the office redesign next week, hopefully, but for now, I just wanted to share what I did today.

I have a whole Pinterest board for my office/craft room ideas. I was very intrigued by the photos of filing cabinets transformed by modge-podge and paper or fabric.  Only problem: I didn’t have fabric that I wanted to use on file cabinets, and my plan of using scrapbook paper failed when I realized a standard size sheet of scrapbook paper isn’t big enough to cover an entire file cabinet drawer.

I then thought of contact paper.  It would be fairly inexpensive and MUCH easier to work with.  I went looking on Amazon and ran across this.  Oooo!  I had a solid floral pattern in mind, but the idea of the black filing cabinet showing through intrigued me.  Today I tried it and was completely blown away by the results:

I LOVE IT!  Can’t wait to do the others!  I’m now wishing I’d thought of this idea BEFORE I bought black filing cabinets, because I’d love to see something like this in my office.  Oh well, I’m quite happy with how things turned out!

Digging my way out

So, moving back into the office has taken a lot more time than I anticipated.  I finally have my computer set up the way I want it, and can actually reach the printer without having to get out of my chair.  I just finished my first sewing project (hemming a few things) in my sewing corner.  I’ve owned a sewing machine since 1985 and today marks the FIRST day I’ve used it without knowing I had to move it at some point.  Ahhh.  Bliss!  Not making any progress on writing, alas, but I have started guest blogging occasionally at my friend Marcie Atkins’ “We’re All in This Together” series.  Check it out for some advice from me and some other wonderful writers.
