I am slowly working my way through my daughter’s new room. Gone is the 80s wedgewood blue wallpaper. Now bare sun washed white walls greet her each morning. My goal is to keep this DIY redo to under $50. Currently, I have spent $20 on a wallpaper steamer and $3 worth of buttons and Tacky Glue. Our local five and dime, Springrove Variety, lets you pick through a bucket o’ buttons at $2.99 (16 oz foam cup) a cup.
Using an old mirror, I dotted its surface with glue beads. Giving each of the older two a dish of buttons, I let them go to work. My “rules” were; try to spread out the colors and please (yes I begged) do not get glue all over. Surprisingly, they only used 1/2 of the cup! Now I have left overs for another fun DIY rainy day activity.
Finished product, success!
The next project will use the left over buttons and an old single pane window from my parent’s house. Stay tuned!
