Talk It Over Tea {Decorating Eye Sore}

How hideous is this?

It's the weekend. Time to help out some fellow bloggers with their problems. This is mine! This ugly ugly desk that hubby brought home for my daughter. Bless his heart. It's actually  a desk that pops up and can be used for artists/graphic design, I guess. Anyway, it ended up in my living room and now houses my computer. Even though we have a beautiful office in our house, I prefer to work here, in the living room so I can see what's going on with the kids. How can I make this pretty, or  prettier? Help! It's not wood, so painting is not really an option.

Be sure and link up your posts that may include any problems you are looking for a solution to. This link party will be open all weekend.

Isn't cleaning up and de-cluttering an awesome thing? I get closer to God when I clean out the stuff that separates me from Him! blessings and thanks for stopping by my blog with your kind comment; already following ya!

Fabric? A table cloth effect (but more fitted) with a runner down the middle in an accent color that matches your throw pillows or something similar.

I agree with Sarah, and maybe you could spiff up the chair by sewing a cover for it too, out of cute fabric.

Oh gosh, I have no idea. I am not great with home decor. I say spray paint the chair and do a fun cushion for it!

Yep, I think sarah nailed it. You could even use elastic like a fitthed sheet so it is nice and snug. We did that for card tables in our youth lounge at the church. Worked great!
