Normal women treat themselves to retail therapy at Saks and a new pair of shoes. I, in my twisted desires, get excited by a trip to Lowes (despite the ridiculous frequency of my visits) and treat myself to an electronic staple gun.
I don't know about you but those manual ones kill my hands. Not sure why I waited so long because this is clearly worth its price tag of $50.
First project was to turn the Ikea Ung Drill frame into something useful.
I took out the glass and cardboard backing, cut a piece of screening to fit and stapled it in place.
Amazingly, I didn't staple into my finger once!!
For now its functioning as a earring holder
but the plan is to mount it in my office, get some hooks into and it and use it to hold the office supplies I need most often like scissors, etc. I'd like to keep as uncluttered a desk as possible. I just need to find the right kind of hooks/jars.
Hmm...but looking at this, perhaps I should have used pegboards instead? I think I'll try it with the screen and see how it holds up.
I actually purchased the staple gun for a totally different, non home decor related project but it will also come in handy when my fabric from Spoonflower arrives and I can upholster the guestroom chair seat. In case you're wondering, I scraped the paisley pattern I posted Friday in favor of this which I think will work better in the room as a quirky surprise.
What do you think?
