Boys room wall art....

I am so stoked about how these turned out!! I am so glad to be finished with this wall art. I tried so many different ideas and just could not get down with the way it looked. I was at a dead end until I thought up these guys! These were surprisingly easy to make..

I used some spare plywood and cut it into 12X12 pieces... I wanted it to look like a canvas with the wider sides.. so I cut some 1X2's and nailed them to the plywood. I just googled die cut stickers and found some cool motorcycle and four wheeler images. I cut them out with my cricut and used that as a stencil.Then sanded it down a little - which is a nice way to hide all the mistakes I made when painting- trust me there are ALOT!! In fact.. as I am looking over these pictures I am noticing that I left a little green paint on the side of one of these boxes... not even sure how it got there!! You might be surprised where I find paint after I finish some of these projects!!!

TADA!! I am in LOVE :) I had enough left over to make one more that is a little bit bigger in size- I have a cool idea for mothers day .. hopefully I will finish it before the day comes and goes!! I am doing great at starting projects but not so good on the follow through and finish part!!
