I have been working on finishing up my girl's room these last few weeks and I realized I have not shared any projects with you all. When you are doing a room makeover, you are down to the small projects and you tend to drag you feet. I have more small projects to finish up and I find they are the most tedious.
I have finished up one of the art projects and its very special to me. When my daugther was 4 yrs old, she made this painting. My girl loves color and I wanted to change this piece up just a bit, so I came up with this idea.
For this project, you will need a painting of your child, clear contact paper, white paint and peel and stick letter decals.
Once I aligned everything, I applied 2 coats of white acrylic paint. Make sure the first coat of paint is completely dry before you add the second coat. Finally, before the second coat of paint is almost dry, carefully peel away the decals and contact paper. If you need help lifting off the decal use an X-acto knife, but be gentle.
Here is the after:
My girl loves how it turned out and if you look at the bird I added a pink bling eye. Too cute! I do feel the painting is still needing something on the bottom left hand corner, what do you think? This is a great way to keep my girl's 1st painting around for years to come.
