So I am not done with McCartney's room. I haven't finished girly-ing it up yet. As if the walls that ooze pink aren't enough! *wink*
I have had these frames laying under my desk at work. I got them at Goodwill on a 50% off day about a year ago. I used 99 cent acrylic paint and then added the words. I printed the words using Wackadoo font and then rubbed pencil on the back of the paper. Then I traced the words onto the frames on the front side of the paper. This leaves a faint pencil line and I used a $2 paint pen to copy over the pencil.
I really wanted to paint polka dots on the wall, but the walls have this funky texture on them. I knew it would be difficult to get them to look straight so I went to Hobby lobby and bought these luan circles. They were 57 cents for the small ones and 90 cents for the large ones. I used more acrylis paint and they match the dots on the comforter. And it helps tone down the large expanse of pink wall.
I have seen people do these name plaques and thought they were adorable! I looked at the wooden plaques at the hobby store, but I wasn't going to spend upwards of $5 on one. I had an old shelf I ripped apart and used the back of it for the plaque. Of course more acrylic paint and the paint pen did the trick. The stars were also luan peices from the hobby store. They were 4 for $1.49. The ribbon was from my gift wrapping supplies. The cute butterfly hanging on the edge of the shelf was $1.99 and half off!
Since the butterflies were 50% off, of course we had to have another! This one and the baby under it hangs on netting above the bed. (We'll see how long that lasts!)
