I've been really anxious to decorate our new place, you know to make it a little more homey. The last few places we have lived were very temporary and we never even unpacked everything. How sad is that.
I wanted to make sure not to do that this time around. I want to be fully unpacked and the place completely put together. I knew Grant's room would be fun and of course it's got to be done in Toy Story. Since his first birthday, which was Toy Story themed, I knew I wanted to make his room with the same theme. I made multiple Toy Story Cricut character cut outs for his birthday and have saved them all this time with the intention of making them into some kind of wall art.
I had planned on buying some wood plaques from Hobby Lobby and painting them, but with the cost of moving and everything, I just couldn't bring myself to spend what I didn't have to. I found 4 8x10 canvases I bought ages ago and decided they would work just fine. So I dug through my acrylic paint and found 4 colors that were perfect blue, red, yellow, and green. I had Grant help me pick the characters and then just mod podged them onto the painted canvas.
Are they not the cutest!
I love them and so does Grant. He's constantly pointing at them and showing them to everyone.
I also used some of the other Toy Story items he has to decorate. My friend gave him 3 Golden Books and 2 character dolls for his 1st birthday, so I took a couple shelves I've had forever and put them on it.
And of course I had to hang his name up.
In case you are wondering I am fully aware the letters are not even.
What can I say, I hung them by myself and didn't measure a thing. Live and learn.
I have 1 more wall to decorate and I have no clue what to put on it, I need a little inspiration, but I love the what I've started. Not bad for some free decorating.
