In the first post I made about redoing my little boys room, I showed you my inspiration pictures. Remember the dinosaur wall art from pottery barn? Well, I have finished my dinosaur boards. I love how they turned out. I will show you what they look like on the wall in the bedroom reveal post. I am getting close to having the room done. So here is my version of the dinosaur wall art.
Here was my inspiration picture. Pottery barn went darker on the distressing than what I did, I didn't want to go to dark, since the walls are painted a dark brown.
Here are the other two dinosaur wall art boards that I came up with.
Want to know how I did it? Good, cause I'm going to tell you. I first went to Home Depot and bought a 4"x8" sheet of ply-wood and had them cut into three pieces measured at 35"x28". I then painted it white.
This is where it got a little tricky, I found the images I wanted and planned on using an overhead projector to trace the image onto the board. I couldn't find an overhead projector. I checked with the schools and the library and no one has them any more. So plan "B". Plan "B", was to have hubby draw them and then I would trace the image onto the board.
He did such a good job, just what I wanted.
Once the image was traced I then painted each image.
Did a little distressing.
Now they are ready to hang. So exciting to see his room transform.
Tomorrow I will show you his window that we trimmed out. Until then, have a great day!
