At the rate I’m going, there are likely to be many, many parts to Riley’s room transformation, but slow and steady win the race. Or at least I am hoping.
So, the last project I finished is this beauty…
To paint the zebra stripes, I started out using a method where I would tear a piece of paper into strips and then tape it down and then paint in-between the strips. Then I got smart and used drew the stripes on with a pencil. That worked so much better. I have NEVER painted and am not artistic at all, so anyone can do this.
I also had a lime green boa from a party several months ago just sitting around in Riley’s room. I hot glued the boa to the outside of the canvas after I painted it.
Several weeks ago I bought a bright pink “R” monogram, and I just hot glued it to the center of the painted canvas.
As luck would have it, my boa wasn’t large enough to go around the entire canvas; I had about two inches left to cover. I got creative and made a fabric flower.
I borrowed from more than one tutorial to come up with my flower. I have a ton of fabrics. I will never have to buy fabric again thanks to my Grandmom’s stash. So, I used what I had and came up with this fabric flower, with a hot pink button glued on the center.
