How to make your desk look "bizzare"....

 (Source: leelacyd.com; Foto: Leela Cyd Ross)

In 4 steps to a bizzare desk:

  1. If you paint, take your paintings off the wall and place them under the desk against the wall. Now you can kick your feet against the paintings while you work and keep the wall from obtaining ugly stains.
  2. Take your favorite book and open it at your favorite page. Then use your favorite nailpolish to add some drawings to the pages. Fill out the rest of the pages with your favorite black felt-tipped pen. Apply plenty of glue to all pages except the two pages where the book has been opened. Now keep it open at an exact angle of 90° for 3 hours and voil√°... you got a petrified book!
  3. From your next trip to Africa (or to the local Ethno store) bring back a scary wooden face mask and stick it to a leather witches-hat. And "bingo" ready is your... whatever...
  4. Last but not least (and this is only for the advanced self-proclaimed-interior-design-experts):
    Tile the floor with plain/cheap terra-cotta tiles to create the pleasant reading-/working atmosphere of a suburban pizzeria
PS: Don't forget when taking a photo of your ingenious decorating work to include an indefinable turquoise thingy on the right-hand edge of the photo (to keep your readers guessing what it could be... sofa?)


  1. I was about to ask whether that's your desk. I have to admit, I had to read your entry several times to get it LOL. Then I spotted the label "humor" and it was clear to me ;)

    1. Guess my sarcasm got lost a bit in this post then ;)

      And goodness, I wouldn't put such a hideous thing in my home :)

  2. This is a serious contender for "Your Thoughts Please."

    1. To be honest, that was my first thought too when I stumbled across this... "thing" :)

      Hideous, isn't it?
