DIY Teen Subway art.
This project was inspired by the current rage of subway art.
But, with a teen edge.
How to make Subway Art:
Gather some magazine clippings of all sorts of words and phrases. You’ll be happy to know that the Cottages and Bungalows that featured Levi’s bedroom redo was spared the dreaded fate of being cut up. Yay!
Or print your own phrases and words. I used a combo of the two.
I used a pot of sample paint in a funky color for the edges…
Now you can start to apply your words and phrases. I used paper ModPodge first on the part of the board I was working with and then on the back of the paper itself.
Put the words in some sort of order. You want it to look a bit symmetrical. When you have the board covered the way that you like apply another coat of ModPodge over the entire front.
Until you have this…
(be sure and notice those cute little pinwheels, while I didn’t do a tutorial for these I do have some fabulous outdoor pinwheels with a full tutorial!)
The final product.
Don’t notice the uneven edges, or crooked words.
My Katie loves it. It works.
UPDATE: This dear project was done in my early blogging days when I was using a very basic point and shoot camera.Since that time Katie’s room has undergone a dramatic makeover with somewhat better photo’s….HERE.
