What's On Your Workdesk #101


What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?  Working with my new Craft's Meow stamps and if you peek closely you can see my new Peanuts stamps too! Can't wait to use them all.
My desk is still pretty clean, can you believe it???!!!


Okay all you crafty WOYWWer's...what should I do with this beautiful old mirror frame? I bought this at a garage sale last summer because all the carving is so beautiful. I was thinking of making the part where the mirror used to be into either a bullentin board or a chalk board, but I am open to suggestions. I don't want to paint it though...I love the warm antique feel of the carvings.

I would appreciate your suggestions!  If you get a few minutes, Hop over and say Hello to Julia and the rest of us Wednesday desk junkies!


Pin It!

Do you have children? you could put some of their baby things such as little booties in the frame or if not why not make a lot of little technique cards (bit like ATCs but a size to suit you) and fill it with those and make it a showpiece - then if you need inspiration you can look at it and pick a technique to use. HTH. Love the Peanuts stamps I was a big Snoopy fan when I was younger - might have to invest in some too! Thanks for sharing. Sunshine Girl No. 24

Your desk is fab! Love the Peanuts stamps. Good luck with your mirror, I agree about not painting over those carvings though.

Julia Dunnit said...

Ooh no, don't paint it - get some bright polka dot fabric and wadding and make a bulletin board with it..gorgeous.....love the dea of the elegant frame juxtaposed with bright fabric. Or is that just me!! Love the peanuts stamps...really wish someone would buy the licence over here!!

April said...

Lovely frame, I'm afraid I'm rubbish at ideas for things like that, but I'm sure whatever you create will be fantastic! Nice workspace too, looks very organised. Thanks for sharing.

Great pen storage. I haven't seen those Charlie Brown stamps before they are so cute. Hugs Pam x

I'm so glad you told us what it was. . .before I read what it was I enlarged the picture and had no idea. I love the framework on it. What a great find. I've thought and thought about an idea, but can't come up with anything better than your bulletin board idea. I think that is a great use for it! Best, Curt

It would be a lovely cork board. Check out this link http://www.howdoesshe.com/fabric-covered-cork-board-frame It would be totally fab to paint it and add fabric like in this tutorial!

Spyder said...

or!! you could make it back into a mirror, it's fabulous. Love your big top picture with all your copic's on display, I want one of those! MY Promarkers are in little draws which are fast becoming too small, and my copic's, I've only got about ten of them! Love your Snoopy stamps, and I do have a little storage jar like yours,so that's one thing . Great snoop, could stay all day! but that's scarrrry! Happy WOYWW!! Lyn ((hugs)) #42

Sparkly Engineer said...

Hmmm - do I see double of the hm stamp?
I would add a tin center to the mirror for a magnetic board. Probably paint the tin in a distress look first.

Becky Green said...

Oooo! I AGREE with you on your old mirror!!!! GREAT IDEAS!!!! Can't wait to see what you do with your Peanuts stamps!!! I try to do something with my peanuts stamps once a week during school for our son in college! Letting him know, we miss him! He's a Snoopy fan!!!!

Jovita said...

Looking forward to seeing what you make with your new Peanuts stamps. I like the idea of using your frame as a bulletin board, I'm not into the whole chalk boards just because I don't like chalk dust. ;)
