The wicker table was a Habitat Restore score.  It didnt have glass so I added two pieces of MDF that I painted to make it a his and her desk.
Check out what is proudly on display on the desk.
The office staged with cool finds.  The mini cabinet door samples were a road side find.  There were over 20 of them in all shades.  I plan to make cool boxes with them but they looked great on display in the basket too.
Now this is what I call top shelf.  I love the vintage lunch box and thermos.
You have seen this redo before but I liked my clever little quote that I put on it.  The Builder got a good chuckle out of it anyway.
Loving these scissors on steroids! 
A bowl full of twine is always a great accessory. The twine is displayed in an old golf ball caddy.  Also, shown is a close-up of the road side cabinet door samples.
A close up for the yummy lunch box.  I like to use random architectural pieces for display too.  I think there are like 3 finials in this one.

Here are more photos from the local Parade of Homes that I staged.  I had a blast shopping for this "green home". I found some awesome treasures and wanted to share!  This is the office, I wish it was mine.  I may just have to swap some of my stuff out and keep this!

Glad the builder liked your sign as much as I did too. *chuckle*
