Love the chocolate dots. Love the blue. LOVE the wacky floral...but it may be too much for the room, particularly for that lovely giclee above the bed, for which we have created this entire bedroom makeover. Wacky floral may just be the bridesmaid that steals the show...in which case, wacky floral will only be used sparingly.
I've also been holding on to the goodies for this project for quite some time...and since they were intended for the new-and-improved bedroom, I figured now was a good time. Have a looksy:
Thin wood circles, purchased for 99 cents each. Two sheets of scrapbook paper. Mod Podge. Two wooden letters and some acrylic paint in light blue.
So, I tried applying the paper to the circles in a new way. This time, I put a light layer of "the Podge" on the wood circles and just stuck the whole piece of paper over it. Worked out the bubbles with a pampered chef scraper as they came up. When things seemed settled, I took out my cutting board and rotary cutter (used, until this point, for sewing projects), turned the circle upside down, and used the rotary cutter to cut the excess paper from the circle. This produced a good, clean cut.
Once the excess paper was trimmed, I turned it right-side-up and applied more Mod Podge. Love that stuff. While that was drying, I painted the wood letters. When all pieces were dry, I heated up my handy glue gun and attached the letters to the circles. Wa-la.
I have additional plans for these...but this is your teaser until the room is finished. I'm cool like that. I'll give you little sneak peaks for the next couple of weeks, just enough to keep you interested...but hold off on how it all fits together until the big reveal!
Just getting started, peeps.
