Well I have to say I am totally intrigued by all the Sesame Street talk being played out by the opposing sides of the American government. More importantly my stats have showed some interesting Google searches that are leading to my blog, so whatever side of the political game you're on, for an outsider on the other side of the planet I am watching on with great interest.
Anyway enough of the political talk, we can't have a room dedicated to Sesame Street without a number display. Sadly, The Count from Sesame Street, recently passed away and for some reason I just couldn't add him to my project.
Number Wall Art Canvas
Anyways, moving on and growing up, here is how I made the Number Wall Art.
Honestly I hadn't truly decided what I was going to do other than the fact that I wanted some numbers on the wall. So I cut out the numbers and Julian reminded me that there was a canvas in the garage. I bought this canvas 5 years ago, clearly a project that never eventuated. Check out the dust!
Then I placed the numbers on the canvas
The white of the canvas made the numbers look a little bland, so Julian suggested that I paint it. I took some of the yellow paint left over from the wardrobe and did just that.
I modpodge them on and let it dry
Then Julian suggested, rather than having them all neat and lined up I should scatter them - I placed them and I had to admit he was right (Something that pains me to do!)
Then I stuck it on the wall using multiple 3M sticker things (Can't find the packet to say what they are called but they are the ones that go on the back of the hook) and put it on the wall, above Max's cot
Now I can say, in spite of my incredibly sucky photography, this is straight and looks fantastic. Also Julian's suggestions were in fact better than my original plan and the yellow has a) brightened up the room and b) made the numbers stand out.
DIY Delight or Disaster? Well disregarding the fact that this post has now concluded that sometimes I should just shut up and listen to what the hubs has to say - I think it is a delight.
I would love to have each of you come and see this room in all it's almost finished glory because no jokes I am totally amazed with what I have made. The only down side so far to this room, is the fact that it has to remain the cleanest room in the house. Why? It's because every time someone comes over they want to see it in person!
So what's your verdict DIY Delight or Disaster?
Thanks for reading,
