I hope that you had a chance to check out my guest post on Cottage and Vine today!
As promised, I’m back with an update on the Nick and Bren’s room! First, can anyway name the movie that the title of this post came from? An all time favorite in my house!
As you know, the room is painted and it has a very wide (30 inches) black stripe. I originally wanted to do a chalkboard stripe, but with my boys that wouldn’t work!
I knew that a '”street” on the room would be perfect, but I didn’t want to just paint stripes on the wall. So while in Hobby Lobby I found a pack of wood slats for $1.99 for 6 which was perfect!
Once again I put the kids to work! All I had to give them was a pack of fruit snacks;-) ***Side note*** make sure they finish the work before you pay them!
As soon as they opened the fruit snacks they were left me to finish the work myself. That was fine. The craft paint wasn’t giving me the look I wanted so out came my high gloss ultra white paint!
Next step was to figure out how to attach them to the wall. I originally used my Elmer’s glue that’s similar to Gorilla Glue….
One thin line of glue
All was going good, but it wasn’t holding the way I needed it to.
Then my sister walks in the room and asked why I didn’t use my glue gun. I knew she was going to be useful for something! So out came the glue gun
Cool right?!?! Yeah, Nick is going to be so excited when he comes home! Now, what’s the use of having a street in your room without cars??? It just don’t make sense right? Stay tuned because the cars are coming next!
And yes, they will be glued to the wall (in a different way)….Talk about torturing kids;-)
What do you think so far? Have I gone too far with the glue? or have I not gone far enough?!
