First, was a little skirt on my desk. I am tired of looking at the junk and wires underneath, and unfinished baseboard...So instead of cleaning it up, I decided to hide it! I made a little skirt and attached it to an spring rod, with clip on rings. (this way, I didn't have to be exact with my measurements, and could adjust the length....did I mention I was a lazy project doer too:) I used left over drop cloth, and fabric from the upholstered inserts of my dining room chairs (I don't think I ever posted that project....will have to do that to:)
Here is the result.
Before, when you look down the galley into my little office.
After the skirt.... Forgive the photography, I snapped these this morning before good "light".
|much better...notice the skirt is gone on the chair..I destroyed it in the wash (oh, vell:)|
|Love my new hiding place for junk:) And hides the fact I haven't painted the baseboard:) Oh, and that painting, is another masterpiece of my mother's. I love them over my desk.|
|Much better....the chair is much happier. (Mr. O and My little man might think otherwise...they think pillows have a special place on the floor!|
|I had some left over dupioni silk hanging around begging to be used....I think this view is pretty too, no?|
