Our son wanted a Lightning McQueen room a couple of years ago when the movie was still fairly new. Our budget for the bedroom was fairly limited, and I was fairly choosy about what would go in the room. He received some of those Crayola giant colouring pages as a birthday or Christmas gift, and while we were colouring them, I had a great idea!
Background: I had previously purchased posters and had them mounted. I had loved the look then and knew that at some point I would revisit this idea.
The BIG Idea:
Colour the pages in their entirety (son & me), mount the colouring pages ourselves (aka hubby), and create a deep wooden frame (also aka hubby). Then paint the frames in a matching or coordinating colour to the bedroom! We mounted the paper using spray glue on thin plywood, and then modge podged the top of the paper.
We had done a double stripe along the base of his room. Main room colour was yellow, and the stripes were red and blue - we closely colour-matched these actual Lightning McQueen colours. So we did the frames in the blue and love how it all turned out!!
Big impact for practically nothing!
