Washi Tape Laptop Desk Makever

So, I was spray painting the other day and I had on my wedge flip flops. I wear these flip flops all the time, so it wasn't strange that I was painting in them. Anyway, I stepped off my driveway onto the grass and I fell off my shoe. Seriously, I really did. When I fell, I heard a snap and I was down...for the count.
The first Dr. told me I cracked a bone..I went back the next week to another Dr. He said it was more likely that I tore a ligament. If it didn't get better, I would have to have the "s" word. He gave me a thigh high 20lb, super hot, boot and crutches. I am under strict instructions to stay off my foot, ice and elevate. Sucks right?

So, I am bored out of mind. There is only so much pinning a girl can do.
I had really lame laptop desk that my kids had used as nail salon. So, it was covered in fingernail polish.
Ugly laptop desk+super bored= Fabulous Washi Tape Redo!

Pin It

I sent my kids into get all of my washi tape and I got to taping.


I used different types of  washi tape for my creation. Simple and easy to do.


I always get asked where I get my washi tape. I get it here, there and everywhere. One of my favorite places to pick it up is Downtown Tape. All of their tape is only $1.99 a roll. They have tonz of patterns and they even share a few ideas with you!

  20. Question about this super project ... did you put something over the top so that the surface is again level (not bumpy)? I'd love to do this to a desk i'm working on for my daughter for the holidays, but I'm worried that she won't actually be able to use it as a writing surface for homework because it will be bumpy. Will a couple coats of polyurethane smooth it out?
