Before & After Sunday

We had a pretend Nor'easter here Saturday night and we lost power. AGAIN ! Because I couldn't sleep I started to think of things I could do to switch things up in the office. I have a very old file bin, that broke and had a hot pink lid. It so didn't match our office. I haven't been able to find a new one nor have I wanted to spend money on a new one, so I improvised. I took some fabric, wrapped it around, secured with some hot glue and spray painted the lib. Voila, like new.
Here is a shot of the "old bin."

And one of the "new."

Some close ups. I really need to do something with the hardware on the cabinet... but where in the world is a screwdriver????!!! Calling my husband lol...

*** Scratch that, found what I needed and sprayed them... Ta-da

And then because I was bored and should have been using my time more wisely, I decided to add rosettes to a lamp in the office.
Here is the before lonely lamp...

And here is the after. They are pretty easy to make once you get the hang of it.

A close up ( I so need a new camera, terrible shot)

So that's how I spent my Sunday, amidst cleaning, studying and killing time till the husband came home.
