Since I have the angels home with me for spring break =0) I knew I would not have much time for many DIY projects, but I did manage to give our desk area a manly man makeover. Above picture is what I had to work with. The camera belonged to my husbands father, the black urn is our beloved 1st dog, the cross & 'T" I bought at Hobby Lobby for only $2.00, the cross was black crackle & I painted it red. The black box is actually a humidor and the little tree I bought at Pier 1
I like the finished result. Here is the break down: since I was doing this for my husband I added some of his favorite sports paraphernalia. He did not like the look of the brown & white books or the fact that they said Year Book so I bought black & silver duct tape and covered just the spine, except for the ones that are laying flat I also covered the entire front cover. I then took out my silver leaf (I just love this stuff) and covered the very obvious cracks on the 'T'. I added a few items & subtracted some items. I think I much prefer this look. Look how great the bulletin boards look, I showed you those in an earlier post, are they masculine enough they cover/hide all the phone and computer cords. What do you think?
Thank You & Many Blessings~
