Besides recently giving our library’s community space a much–needed update, I’ve also been trying to make our office a bit nicer. I share this office with Jennifer, our Children’s Librarian, and it’s pretty much the hub for the rest of our team.
The doorway leading out to the circulation desk has had its share of fun decor over the years. This is a photo taken a few years back:
In an earlier version of this post, I had gone into detail as to what was going on in this photo. But honestly? It was really boring. I wanted this post to be brief, and have a fun Before & After element to it.
So I made it short and sweet.
Without further ado, here’s what it looks like today:
It feels SO GOOD to declutter and beautify our small office space.
I’m also going to throw in a super-simple tutorial for those who may never given laminating much thought. If you want to take your laminating to a whole new level? Use some tape and some super glue.
A Super-Simple Laminating Tutorial
- First, I taped one inner-side of the laminating sheet down in order to make it a stable surface.
- Second, I used the natural straight line created between the wood edging and the laminate top as a guide to line up the letters.
- Third, I used a bit of super glue on the back of the letters to stick them exactly where I wanted them.
- Finally, I removed the tape and easily transferred the sheet over and into the laminator.
Now if you’re reading this and realize that this is where I’m going to leave you, and you’re like, “But wait! I want more details!!! WHY HAVE YOU FORESAKEN ME?!?!?” Sorry about that! Just ask for details on any aspect in the comments, on social media, or by email (email@example.com). I promise: you haven’t been…foresakened? foresook? foresaked? I haven’t abandoned you.
