Leopard Print Mouse Pad and Keyboard Wrist Guard Makeover

Here's another project from my home office remodel that I would like to share with you.

I found some fun leopard print fabric at JoAnns and decided to makeover some desk accessories.

Like this cheap mouse pad that came with my desktop years ago.And, a black keyboard wrist guard that is at least 15 years old.Using some spray adhesive, I glued the fabric to the mouse pad, cutting away any excess.

For the wrist guard, I used packing tape and wrapped it like a package.I just love it! Fun and sexy, as sexy as a mouse pad can get.

You're turning into a regular Martha! That's a great idea. My mouse pad was free and came from an oriental rug company and looks like an oriental rug on the top (but it's not) and has the rubber backing on the back. It even looks like it has fringe on the ends. LOL LOL

This is a great makeover project. Hmmm, now I need to find a manly fabric to make over my husband's mouse pad! Visiting from Mad in Crafts.

Hmmm - I'm kind of tired of my mouse pad - I may have to try this. :)

Definitely on my list of things to do...we have a boring mouse pad that just says apple on it. I just need to convince my other half to like something new. ;-)

Found you over at happy hour blog hop. I'm your newest follower and would love a follow back. :-)

Take care,

I really need to do this. I am out with my laptop right now and I was embarrassed to pull my mouse pad out of my bag because people might see it!
