Prince Two is no longer blue

I want to take this opportunity to say "thanks" for following along with me while I update my kids' rooms.  The kind and generous remarks have been very rewarding, and they have kept me focused on my goals.

With that being said, I have the third and final letter for your perusal!  Here is the before:




Not bad, but it doesn't match Prince Two's room anymore... plus I'd like him to have something he can keep for a while.  This letter also got new paint-leftover from the walls.  I didn't mind the polka dots, but they needed a make-over. 




Hello Mod Podge!   I chose coordinating scrapbook paper and found my small circle punch.  Notice how I cut some circles in half, and larger?  I used those to fill in against the edges.  I used Mod Podge to glue them down, and then applied some on the top.






The old paint had dimension to it, and I decided not to fight it.  It gives the brown an embossed look that I am seriously digging.  The brown is the color on Prince Two's accent wall, and the off white covers the rest of the walls. 


 The letters are officially finished, but there is still a lot I'd like to do before school starts.  My break is over!





It's all about the "link."
