The computer I use is in our kitchen. I'm rarely alone while at the computer, and let me tell you this...it's almost never quiet when I'm at the computer.
So I had this grand idea to use some open space in our bedroom to create a little office just for me. With a door. Our bedroom has a door, so I thought that would be cool.
We've been keeping our eyes open for a desk of some kind and yesterday we hit the jackpot at a garage sale. So now I have a desk.
I'll need to clean it up a bit and slap on some new hardware, but I love it. It's handmade and sturdy and purty. Just like me! Wait...forget that.
Anyway. There is just one tiny little problem, which may have contributed to the exceptional price.
I realize this is a terrible photo, but I had to give you a close-up. From the first picture, I think you can see that this is that sticky paper stuff that goes in the bottom of drawers or on cupboard shelves. It's glued tightly to my new beautiful desk.
So, what would you do?
I am SOOOO not crafty, and I'm totally clueless about refurbishing things. Is that a word?
Paint it? Attempt peeling it off at the risk of having to sand off clumpy glue? Decoupage? Fabric? Nail on colored plastic? Always lay on top of it when people come over so they don't see? Permanent marker?
See? I'm clueless. I would appreciate your help because I know the lot of you are crafty refurbishers.
Thank you kindly.
