Our Fox Theater
Ours I think is just as GRAND don't you think?
For this project I decided to set aside my desire for things to be "beautiful" and looking how I picture in my mind. This is a struggle for me but I find that I end up being the one doing the project as my sweet girls stand by bored watching me have all the fun. I wanted the girls to have a great time with this project and they did. They helped with every step except using the utility knife. I thought we'd wait a year or two or several before we turn them loose with sharp blades.
The box came from a foam mattress that we recently purchased. Did you know they can ship a queen sized mattress in a box? I didn't. It was vacuum packed in plastic put in a card board "sleeve" and slid into another box. All this packing = future crafting fun. On delivery day I was excited for both the new mattress and the potential projects.
After the cutting process was done we did a base coat with a quart of "oops paint" that I picked up over a year ago. I did not get pictures of this part of the process. We were all a little to messy for me to think about touching my camera.
Next step. The fun painting:
