My 3 Monsters: The Corner Office

The Corner Office

I thought having a "corner office" was supposed to be a sign of success and prestige.  A luxury.  It is, right?  Then why does my little "office" tucked into the corner of my master bedroom feel so . . . not prestigious? 
I've lamented before. A 1300 square foot house affords precious few luxuries of the space variety.  You've all seen my "craft room", right.  While it's not spacious, per se, I think it's quite lovely now.  So, in an attempt to lovely-up my "office" this week I worked on a new take on the old memo board.  I have one of the ubiquitous magnet boards with a distressed black frame which I have used for years.  And loved.  I'm not hatin' on magnet boards here.  But since we redid the bedroom with the pretty board and batten wall treatment I wanted something new.  Something a little cottage-y.  Dare I even say kitschy?  Something to honor the impending release of the latest ubiquitous (twice in one blog post . . . nice!) vampire movie. . .
Come on people . . . Forks?  No?  I scoured my local Goodwill and snatched up all the forks that had any character to them.  Vintage silver would be so much better if you have access to it.  I lined the back of the frames with burlap (to match the floor in the room), glued on the forks with Gorilla glue and embellished away.

(Ignore the odd shape of the frames in the photo -- my camera got dropped the other day and now the lens is all wonky.  I assure you they are square.  Or rectangular, if we're being technical.)  Now I can just stick my random notes, lists, and appointment reminder cards in the tines of the forks.  Tres Magnifique!  And now I love my corner office.  The end.

I'm linking up, friends!

  4. I was going to make these for belated Mother's Day gifts, too. (I'm so bad . . .) That tag with the R could say Recipes instead of Remember and then the frame could be propped up on a cute stand in the kitchen. I thought they were fun! Thanks for the love, guys.

  10. So... remember 8 months ago when I told you that I had this bookmarked and was going to make it? (The first comment up there.) Well I FINALLY got around to it!

    I liked to your version, but I thought you might like to see mine. :) Thanks for the great inspiration.
