In the last post on our office, we were still using a kitchen table and black desk. Someday I’ll have the finishing touches ready and I’ll share the rest, but *spoiler alert* we now have white desks.
I can’t tell you how much I love my desk, but the white surface did create an issue with my computer mouse. For weeks, I couldn’t figure out why my computer would turn on, but the mouse wouldn’t respond. Finally, I mentioned it to Brian, and in five minutes he diagnosed the issue – no mouse pad. He let me use his, which is covered with lovely photos of car parts and Motocraft products. But I wanted something a little more me.
I was inspired by the lovely marble mouse pads I found on Etsy for $20, and figured out how to create my own.
- A piece of craft foam.
- Marble contact paper. I love this stuff, you can use it for so many things!
- Copper contact paper. This stuff is addicting.
Step 2: Trace your craft foam onto your marble contact paper. We’re going to add a section of copper, so mark how far you want the marble to come. Then cut it out.
Step 3: Slowly, peel and stick the contact paper to your foam, smoothing out any bubbles.
And that’s really all there is too it!
