The little prince has officially turned into a 'big boy'...at least that's what he keeps telling me (haha). Several months ago we took a trip to Ikea and he picked out his new big boy bed which he calls a ladder bed but most of us know it as a bunk bed (smile).
Ever since the bed arrived I've been saying that I was going to do some redecorating but I've been slacking - that is until now. The room isn't completely done but I did finish his art center and I'm feeling pretty good about the outcome.
My inspiration came from Jenn at Clean & Scentsible. She did a kids art display in her boys' room (here) that I instantly fell in love with and knew I had to recreate for my son's room. Check out my latest project:
ART letters - I found these great curly-q letters at Hobby Lobby for 50% off; great deal
The frame - also found at Hobby Lobby for the best deal ever...90% off in the clearance section
I also purchased matting at 50% off - now do you see why I love this place so much? (lol)
I spray painted the frame with a Krylon blue glossy paint
I used Elmer's wood glue to adhere the matting to the frame (hard to make a straight glue line when taking a picture...lol)
After measuring the frame and cutting the corkboard, I used my glue gun to secure the corkboard to the matting
A completed board
The ART letters painted and sprayed with clear acrylic
Voila ~ I LOVE it!
The big reveal (hehe)- my BEFORE AND AFTER
Stay tuned for pics of a completed room, but for now.....
