Wall Art Wednesday: Cork Sheets


*To be entered in our weekly stack giveaways, leave a comment on each blog post throughout the week. Winners will be chosen at random from comments from the entire week combined. 
One comment per post please!*

Ooooh I have been excited to show you something!! Last month I told you that my boys wanted to move to the two empty bedrooms downstairs in the basement. The first thing I thought of was, "Another office upstairs!" So of course, I agreed ;) So right in the middle of the holidays {great timing} we made the move. It's been a little bit of work getting everything set, but I'm all done!



It is soooo nice to have a separate computer office from my craft office. For this girl who works from home and who's computer work is getting greater and greater, it's been a necessity! The only stacks you will find in this room are stacks which are waiting for a video to be made....no peeking! ;)


I love the clean look of the white furniture, everything is from Ikea. As soon as I started using my computer in there, I decided I needing some kind of protection for the desk. I didn't want it to automatically get scratches from my computer. Guess what I used...


Cork! This is from DCWV Home's new "Domestic Bliss" line which is available at Jo-Anns. This piece is $14.99 but you will have to check out all of the other items in the line, so cute! The cork is self adhesive and removable which means it is not going to damage my pretty desk! 


And it's one big coaster for my daily Diet Cokes ;) Can't hurt, right?! My new office started my 2012 off right... organized & productive. 

I have a couple winners from last week's comments. Congratulations to:


Marjeen said...



I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this challenge. I think the layout is very nice.

Deneen said...


Wow....Awesome stacks! My favorite is the Timless Type stack. I also love the All Chalked Up stacks. What a great idea...chalk board paper! Can't wait to get to Michael's to get me some of these stacks.


Email me your address and I will get your prizes out to you this week. Keep those comments coming! I love reading all of your feedback :) 

Have a wonderful day! I'll see you back here on Friday.

  47. Nice clean office. Wonderful cork idea usage. I have a piece of glass that rests on top of my desk and a piece of felt ontop of the glass that protects the glass from getting scratched by
    my laptop that rests on a slanted stand on the left of my desk & a printer is to the right on my desk. I do not have as much space as you & wish I did.

  92. I love cork... and this sheet under your laptop looks fantastic, good idea!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Ohhh! This office is so organized! Even flies wouldn't dare to go in here. Haha! You can separate your crafts room and your office to keep them from looking cluttered. After all, a cluttered room makes it harder to look and find stuff. Also, an organized room makes for a better working environment.
