To close out this week of Geek Chic Office Gear, I've got this beyond easy way to make a statement with your favorite photos & a little fabric. Like my other posts this week, I used fabric from the new Geeks Gone Wild collection by Kyla May.
Find a frame (I used a shadowbox style from Ikea to add a little extra dimensional "oompf"), then remove the back and trace this onto the desired fabric & cut out. Attach to the backing using double stick tape.
You can leave as-is for a little decorative flair or add a photo. Cut the photo into the same shape as the frame (I did a square to go in this square frame). Center image over the fabric and attach via double stick tape. Reassemble the frame and boom! Now you've got a unique frame in no time at all. He's pretty fired up about it:
Add in a customized memo board, cup cosy and laptop case and you have a complete & one-of-a-kind office:
I hope you've enjoy my "Geek Week". Obviously all these projects don't have to be done in a geek theme, but it definitely upped the hipness factor for me. Come on back next week for some all new Valentine's stuff & Monday's Craftastic Link Party. Have a great weekend!
