5 Minute Mousepad DIY- Thrifty Thursday!

I lost my mouse pad.  How does one lose a mouse pad? Answer: I have a toddler.  And my mousepad seems to have gone the way of my original set of car keys, my Mastercard and my undereye concealer (seriously, Kalia, I need that!)

I picked up a set of 5 round cork trivets at the thrift store one day for the whopping price of $0.99,  I really needed them to set hot dishes on, but I do not need FIVE, so I decided to use one to make a new mousepad.

With some ScotchBlue tape and spray paint- I had a new mousepad.

Plain, then gold spray paint, then painter’s tape, then hot pink!

I am sure my old mousepad will show up again, but I like this one better, and hopefully Kalia does not decide to add it to her mysterious stash of goodies.

In case you were wondering, this is what my DIYer hands look like. (I also have white & hot pink paint on my arms…)

Happy Thrifting!
