The month of May holds a fun DIY project for me — to makeover my son, Parker's bedroom.
My to-do list includes:
- Create artwork
- Paint dresser
- Paint walls/trim
- Update window treatment
- Bulletin board
- Paint chalkboard one section on wall
- Update bedding
I'm done the first thing on the list, so that's a start!
While we were on our epic summer vacation last summer, we picked up some memorabilia with Parker's room decor in mind.
We got these coasters in Cars Land at Disneyland & the Lego minifigures at Legoland (you'll see them below).
After picking up some frames from Michael's, I simply backed the openings with cardstock, then mounted these coasters on with some permanent adhesive squares.
Framing the Lego mini figures was a bit trickier, just because it involved some trial & error before it worked.
I started with a shadowbox frame.
I had to use some adhesive foam to pop them out a bit because the heads of the figures didn't sit flush with the bodies.
After the foam, I stuck them on with a temporary adhesive square. That didn't last long... the figures started falling off within a few hours.
I went back to Michael's & bought some permanent adhesive squares (By 3M - available in the framing section) & tried those.
They worked like a charm & it's still holding strong!
Stay tuned for more boy room projects in the month of May!
