Every time I walked into my studio, and from each sideways glance while seated at my computer, my eyes were assaulted by the wooden scallop from the Drexel Heritage Computer Hutch we are stuck with. I couldn’t stand to look at this eyesore for one more second:
It was throwing off my creative flow. I’m not kidding. If you have experienced this, I hope you already know you are an artist (and probably a designer).
So I found some scissors.
Some scrap paper (similar here and here).
And my lovely collection of washi tape (see this post from Christmas to read about my washi tape love affair).
And I fixed it. Silly? Of course. Crazy? A little. But it makes me smile whenever I look at it now, and that makes all the difference.
This room is my studio, so a playful look works well. I halved five-inch circles, but you could also use a triangle shape to create a pennant look (for a boy’s room, man cave, or even a party decoration). Lay the paper shapes in a row, and secure them with one long strip of wash. That’s it.
To what lengths have you gone to free yourself from an eyesore?
