Today at work...

I got to play with a bunch of new O'verlay prototypes.  We having been working with thicker material and coming up with some new concepts and products, and I thought I would sneak you a peek. 
One we will have available soon is "Decorative Corners."
 1/2" thick corners to be exact...
A big part of my job is product development.  So I spend  a lot of time drawing patterns and having samples made. Then the fun part, testing.  Sticking them to everything in my house, testing different adhesives, letting my kids beat the crap out of them trying to knock them off.


Here is my metal Crate & Barrel Parsons desk before (welcome to my laboratory)...

And with a little super glue tester...


Held really well. Joe had to kick it reallllly hard to get to get it off.
We still have some revisions we need to make before they go on the site.  
We want to use these for anywhere you have a 90 degree angle that needs dressing up.

And we have some mini corners for the LACK.
(Yes, there is a blinding amount of O'verlaying going on below.) 


So that is a portion of my fun today!  I would love to know what you think of these babies.  We will have them up once the kinks are worked out. 

And I almost forgot to tell you... O'verlays is running a 15% off sale 
thru 2/15 in honor of Valentine's Day.
Use Coupon Code LOVE15 at checkout! 

Also, thank you for your comments on yesterday's stress post.  You gave me lots of good ideas, and we are tackling the basement this weekend. 
 (I might just get my husband a dumpster for Valentines Day. 
Sadly he would seriously be turned on by that. He is a Spartan.)
