Wednesday is here again and we are speeding around the globe courtesy of Julia and WOYWW to see what's happening on those work desks.
Do you know what it is yet?
I did a spot of diy at the weekend and put up my magnifying mirror from Ikea inside my wardrobe....Pip would have been proud of my bodging! That was his term for what I call being creative with what you've got!! LOL
The only screws I had to fix it had heads that were too small so they went straight through the holes or were too long so the thread would have pushed through the wood on the other side!
So........I found a bit of white plastic stuff in his tool box and made some spacing washers to solve the problem.....I cut 4 square pieces using T!ms scissors...My! They can slice through anything...and very sharp...I need to be more careful as I've got a few cuts to proove it! Then cut angles on all four corners (don't know why just felt the need!) then used my Crop-a-dile to cut a hole out of the centre.
I've found that I really need the magnifying side of this to put my make up on and this means I can angle the mirror to catch the light and make it even better for the job in hand.
Whilst I was at it and in the groove...I fixed two Ikea plastic holders to the door to hold my make up...this also needed a bit of bodging.....so I used the Crop-a-dile again to cut a smaller channel at the top of the fixing holes so that they could sit onto the screws firmly.
I'm very happy with the new arrangement :)
Thanks for looking at What's on my
Work Desk Wardrobe this week ;)
