And another completed project!

DIY Day @ ASPTL


I can't believe I have completed another project!!! Well, I haven't hung it up anywhere, so I guess I'm not completely completed...

I found a cute peg board at Goodwill for $1.29. Of course I didn't take a picture of it, but I did take a picture of the other one I bought. It was just like this, except a funky bad shade of pink (pepto-bismol) and had a butterfly on it instead of a whale.

I don't know why the above picture is sideways.
See, $1.29!


I removed the butterfly and covered the board with cute baby girl paper I got from my mom (free!) and mod podge,

covered raw chipboard letters with coordinating paper, then attached to the board,

mod podged it again, then sanded around the edges,

dry-brushed some sage green paint on the pegs

and assembled it. Voila!


I just can't decide where to hang it. Her bedroom is too full of stuff already, and I was going to put it in our entry way but it clashes with all of the Buckeye stuff. I'll figure something out.
And I still have to figure out what to do with the whale peg board. It is cute as can be as is, but again I don't really have a place for it.

could you get an over-the-door hanger and hang it on her bedroom door?
