The One Room Challenge- Week 2!



I can't believe it's the second week of The One Room Challenge already. You can read about the first week of The One Room Challenge here.

This week, I promised to show you my art decal project. Ta-dah, here they are!






What do you think? I thought the wall decals are so much fun and they are on clearance for only $12.99 (for all the decals you see above). I am not sure where I will use them when I bought them a while ago. Now, I am planning to put them on the striped wall aka The Focal Wall (below).



I have to admit that arranging the decals on the canvases were quite fun albeit quite time-consuming. While this seemed like a good idea at first, I found out a few days later the decals wouldn't stick to the canvases properly, a concern I had before I started this project. I tried putting some glue on the parts that started to peel off but they don't work.

I guess I will need to find a stronger adhesive. Perhaps using a super glue might help? Any good suggestions? I really hope to fix this so I can put them on the focal wall.

This week, I am planning to work on the branch mobile so hopefully, you will see it next week!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the participants from The One Room Challenge below!

  9. If you try super glue do you have decal material you can test it on? Super glue can sometimes eat through stuff.
    Maybe try a spray adhesive used for plastic and also spot test it as well justto make sure it doesn't damage your items.

  19. I agree with the Modge Podge suggestion. First paint your canvas, add the decals and paint more Modge Podge over it. It dries clear. Of course you want all the art to be alike, so take that into consideration. Good luck!

  20. How fun! Loving these and they're perfect for a boy's room!

  21. They are so stinkin cute!! Totally use Modge Podge, that stuff sticks to anything and you can get it in different sheens (glossy, flat...) Just sand between coats for a super smooth finish.
