Home Office Projects

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I've been working on a few home office projects and was finally able to take a couple pictures yesterday.

This is the clipboard project that I talked about doing awhile back. I've got two more that I need to hang somewhere but I love how these turned out. I purposefully used contrasting patterns for a bright pop but tied them all together using the same ribbon across the top and bottom. I plan to clip notes and/or pictures to them. (For instructions on how to make these clipboards please see my post from April 30th.)

This is the bulletin board that I orginally posted 'how to' instructions and pictures of on March 13th. I had since decided I wanted some brighter and when I stumbled upon this fun green print at Walmart of all places I knew that's what I wanted. I love apple green color accented with black and I added the polka dot ribbon to trim it out.

I've worked on a few other little projects for the office as well that I'll have to share later. I'm anxious to add my new desk but I hate to even mention it to Handsome Hubby since he's in the middle of the big hardwood floor project. I'll take some pictures of that project to share with you too. He has finished laying down the hardwood in the dining room, next step is to rent a big sander to sand it and the rest of the hardwood. Final step will be staining. Still trying to decide how to maneuver that with the kids.

Nothing too exciting planned again this weekend. It's gorgeous out so we'll probably be outside alot. Likely we'll have a few beers and visit with the neighbors tonight. Tomorrow night we're planning to go over to some friends house for a BBQ. Other then that, not much else officially planned. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Love those clipboards..I like the way you did yours better than how I did mine b/c you didn't take the paper all the way up. It's harder to do it that way. Next time, I'll try it your way.

I hope you post more pictures of the office - from what I can see I love it! I love the green and the black. I am hoping to turn our sitting room into my space soon... black furniture is already in play - colors to go with it are in the air!

CUTE! I love all of your crafts. Please show us more of your office! Can you tell us what you do from home? As a SAHM I'm ALWAYS looking to see what other smart gals are doing.

Congratulations on your sweet new arrival.
