Office Chair Mat

You know those office chairmats that you can buy for what seems like a lot of money and about 4 months later they are cracking all over and there are holes in them so they are really not that useful anymore? I have a solution. Brian's dad made something similiar with parquet flooring and I thought what a great idea. I got a piece of 1/2" plywood and cut it down to size. Well the size I thought would work and it doesn't so now I have to change it. Just a few cuts thats all. Then at Home Depot they had clearance vinyl tiles. I just tore the paper off and attached them to the plywood and voila a chair mat that won't crack. What a concept!


  1. Genious!So much prettier to the eye too!

  2. Great idea! I despise those office chair mats...such a mess...what a great and better looking alternative.

    I was just checking in on the Friday Follow list and saw you, so thought I would say Happy Friday Follow (on Sunday!)

  3. Great idea Brooke! We need a new chair mat and I think I will try this. Carolyn
