I wanted a little extra storage, and a place for the cats, so I made a shelf out of a door we took off one of the rooms. I just covered it rather than trying to make it look super fancy. Jingles loves it. I need 2 cat beds now.
This work desk was built by us. I bought glass from the shop for the top and then we built racks for the paper underneath. Someday, I'll get that black fabric hung up around it like I intend.
This rack is mostly my new stuff that I just bought/received and my most used/loved stuff, so it's *right there* when I'm working.
OK, I know you're going to ask, so I'll tell the story. When we were living on Lincoln street, we were in the basement one day (garage) and I looked up and saw a bat stuck to the wall. ew. I poked it and it was dead. So we took it off the wall, put it in a bag (with gloves) and took him to work to scare my co-worker. For the record, she wasn't scared :P
So it got hung in *my* office for a long time! It became my little cubicle mascot. There, it was just in a bag taped to the wall. So then the shop moves, and we leave and I can't make myself toss the dead bat because it was such a conversation piece.
One day, I'm in Michaels and found a Martha Stewart (yes that makes me laugh) shadow box - PERFECT for mr. bat. So I brought it home and mounted the bat. And yes, it hangs in my scrapbook room. (for the record he's mummified - I think the cement walls dried him out).This is the monogram doored cabinet with the doors open.
My baby boy scrapping with me.
