Harley Davidson desk accessories

Sorry for the photos. I had the hardest time photographing these items. Most of you know that I use a camera phone to take my pictures. Well, dont' get too excited (because I am!!), but a digital camera has been ordered! I don't think it's shipped yet, but it will get here soon, and this is me progressing in the right direction, don't you think? I'm entering the modern world, and I'm getting a digital camera! It's about time! On to my project that I'm showing you today. My husband is currently moving his home office from a bedroom into the basement. It's an on-going process of getting organized here at home. With all of the moving and rearranging, we're coming across so many things that serve no purpose, and they can be thrown away. Well, I rescued a few items, and I gave them a facelift, and now my husband loves them!


This was a magnetic clip advertising some kind of car company or towing service. Not sure which. It wasn't very attractive. One small piece of Harley-Davidson orange flame paper and a dimensional sticker, and now it's not only functional, it looks good too! My husband was so impressed. It took two minutes to alter!


On this one, I really should have taken a "before" photo. This was a corporate mug with logos, etc. It was very unattractive, and my husband couldn't even remember where he got it from. On this one, I used grey on black Harley-Davidson logo paper, it's wrapped around the mug up to the handle, and then I added stitched ribbon on the top and the bottom to give it a finished look. More stickers, even one on the handle, and this one is fantastic! This is my favorite project, because it REALLY looks great! The mug color perfectly matches the stickers I selected!



This is the sticker on the opposite site. Perfect color match!


This wasn't headed for the trash, but it still needed a little something. Just a small strip of paper and a sticker, and it was done.

My husband and my oldest daughter pointed out that the sticker isn't straight. They're right. Oh well! Perfection isn't everything!

Here are the items together. My husband's desk is now really stylin' with Harley-Davidson accessories! Fun to alter, and he's thrilled. It was very flattering with how happy he was with his "new" accessories.

Thanks for stopping by!
