As you probably remember from my headboard project, I had my plywood cut down (for free, remember!) which left me with a few extra pieces. So the extra pieces sat in my living for what seemed like a year (really, it was about 3 weeks) until I finally decided what I wanted to do with them. I knew I wanted something that looked a little like subway art, and I definitely wanted to use the names of the local beach cities.....Sooooo, this is what I came up with.
I started out with one of the leftover plywood pieces from my headboard project (so far, this project is free!)
Next paint...Not wanting to spend hardly any money at all on this project, I stumbled across the oops! section in the Lowes paint department and found this perfect color for only a buck!!
After 2 coats and letting it dry, it was time for some lettering. Now I have had my Cricut Cake for about 6 months it has been sitting in the closest, in its box the whole time. After toying with the idea of returning it for a Cricut Expression, I decided to research the possibility of the Cricut Cake cutting paper, vinyl, etc....Turns out it can and all you need is a different mat and different blade! Yay!!! What did I use for the lettering?? At first I was going to use vinyl but it was a little to pricey for my budget...Then I stumbled across a $3.99 roll of contact paper at the grocery store and Woo-Hoo!! It worked perfectly!
I LOVE it!!!
Again, the before (see the metal thingy on the wall):
And the After:
Happy Spring Break Everyone!!!
