Theater Room Art & Fun Times at Calaway Park

Sorry for no posts in the past few days but it has been a really busy week.  We have just been having to much fun, but I managed to find some time to create something.  A couple of months ago I had come across a piece of art work at home sense and I thought no way am I paying $50.00 for that I will just make it.  

 I am trying really hard to make the space very manly with a little touch of feminine in it.  So I have created this  license plate art.  He was content on just having the license plates but I wanted to add the wording on top.  I starting by doing some searching online to find pictures of license plates and decoupaged them to a board I had made out of mdf and attatched it to a 1x4 board.  I used the rest of the 1x4 to cut out the square blocks. I am pretty sure these blocks were painted about 4 different colors before I decided on this one.  I finished it off with sanding the edges and stenciling the letters on.

I made sure to put on a Wyoming license plate in honor of a good friend who is from there.
