So today I planned on getting quite a few things done. The things I was planning on doing, I did not do. But that's okay. Because I worked on our computer desk which had gotten pretty scratched up in our last few moves. I tried to just paint the top of it black, but the paint wouldn't really stick and it didn't look all that great. So I came up with another idea! Voila!
I Mod-Podged pages from "Songs for the Open Road: Poems of Travel and Adventure" that I bought about a year ago when I needed to spend just another $1.50 to get free shipping on Amazon. Then I painted a very basic compass rose, and voila, it's done! I thought it turned out nicely. I thought about cutting out magazines or something, but I wanted to keep it looking pretty clean and stream-lined, since it's a desk and would most likely have random stuff on it to begin with; I also thought that the poetry was a nice touch to our furniture since we both love traveling. Not bad for a day off project. And it didn't cost us anything to change either. Annnd it's much better than the peeling desk that it was this morning.
