I think working on 4 rooms at one time has been to my advantage. If something isn’t working in one room I can just paint it and move it to another. This corkboard was in Adam’s room, then the boys were sharing it for a while.
I covered the cork area with ad paper and tape.
Then sprayed it with black spray paint to match Ammon’s room. It looked good but I wanted to add something more to it.
So, I used the Cricut to cut out a car shape on a scratch piece of paper. Then I used the outline of the car as a stencil for the board.
I used easy-tack on the back of the stencil to secure it in place. Spray the back then let it sit for about a minute before sticking it to your project.
Then I applied acrylic paint to the board with a round sponge brush using a ponuding motion. I did it in a few light layers so it wouldn’t bleed under the stencil.
To hang it on the wall I used Command picture strips (surprise, surprise). Since it’s pretty large and I don’t know how Ammon’s going to treat it, I used 4 of the strips.
Ta-da! It’s hung on the wall over his table I still need to finish.
And here it is with the things he wanted to hang on it. A picture his sister drew for him of his favorite stuffed animal, pictures of his nephews, a souvenir his Chinese teacher brought back from China and a picture of the Temple. I can’t wait to see what else he wants to hang on it.
I hope you’re all having a happy Labor Day and enjoying the day off. We’re going to be picnicing, swimming, hitting a few buckets of balls, and working on a few projects.
