Desk Pad...er...thingy...

What's that called? The thing you set on the desk to protect your desk, or in my case I set it there just to be cute.

Here is what you need:
Fabric
Mod Podge
Surface Guards (those clear, vinyl bumper things)
Another technical name here:
Thin wood like the kind use for clipboards
Is that called clipboard-board?

Whatever.
I just spread the mod podge on the board, laid the fabric down, smoothed it our and Mod podged over the top of the fabric. 3 times. After it was dried, I flipped it over and pulled the (about 1 ich) edge over, mod podged it down. 3 coats.

I stuck those vinyl bumpers on the bottom.

And Voila!!


I would show a picture zoomed a little further out but I am a tease. I don't want to reveal more of the kitchen yet (plus I am not done with the doors and drawers...)

It is coming along. I am using this bench as a seat at the desk. Had I known this I would have had a much better matched fabric, but oh well. I am not about to redo that. And mis-matched is in... right?
