From Entrance to Teen Room Art...

I have been working on my daughters room and I transformed a couple pieces of artwork that use to hang in my entrance and turned it into fun teen art...

This is what I started with...


It's a nice piece of art but with all the moving we have done the past few years it was damaged and I just had no use to hang it....

I figured I could do something with it...hmmm (thinking cap)....it needs to be bright and fun for a teen girls room...off to Michael's I went and bought some mod podge and found this fun scrapbook paper and it was the perfect size....(doing the happy dance...woot woot)...

Aren't these colors and designs going to be fun????

The first think I needed to do was scrape all the paper on the old decor....It was really easy...I just sprayed some vinegar water and it bubbled right up and scraped off....(no mishaps this time)...whew!!!

Once the paper was off I lightly sanded it and wiped it down....

I layed all the scrapbook paper out to find the best placement that I thought looked best and started to mod podge....

 Taaa Daaa.....

The top right square that has notebook lines needs a "quote" so I will be working on that....but for now I think they turned out pretty darn good....

I hung them on the wall in her room to see how they would look....(sorry for the bad pics...I need to work on my camera skills) I will have better pics as I continue to do her room....

  1. LOVE those papers...especially the peace sign and zebra prints...lol Question...do you have the peace signs upside down in these photos? I thought it went the other way with the peace "arms" facing down? Just a thought ;) I can see you coordinating the paint colors for these papers for the dresser drawer fronts...mix up some chalkboard paint and go for it. Great repurposing of the old art work.
