MAKE A CUSTOM DESK PAD. ANY SIZE! ANY DESIGN!
Has it ever happened to you that when you make a decision (that you think will be simple) and it turns out to be a major pain in the butt? Yeah. Story of my life.
Well, I thought I could just buy a desk pad. Ha! My desk is too skinny! It's only just over 15 inches from front to back and that made it impossible to find a commercial desk pad that would fit the space.totally surprised, right?!
While on a recent (and very important) mission to look for fabric, I noticed that Hobby Lobby sells vinyl by the foot and at that moment an idea was born. I could use the vinyl and create my own custom desk pad! It would be the EXACT size I wanted.
So, there I was, standing in the middle of Dysdyl.com, lovingly caressing this roll of vinyl, pondering my plans. In retrospect, I am pretty sure that I looked a little like Gollum caressing that ring because the lady who worked there was staring at me. My precious vinyl!!
So, I'm at Dysdyl.com with my new idea floating around in my head.
Ideally, the decorative backing should peel off when you're bored of the pattern so you can replace it with any other design. But I think that's a long shot if you used wrapping paper. It's probably a bit more feasible with fabric. Good luck to you if you try!
