O.K., so I got a little ahead of myself once the kids went back to school. I had all these great project ideas, and none of them have gotten done... except 1.
I finally finished our "Family Rules". YAY!!!
I kinda had to finish this one since I kept stepping over this giant canvas that has been propped up against the wall, laying under the dining table, and spread out on the family room floor.
I painted the canvas a light gray first, then cut the strips of paper to size. I wrote out each rule (I used different fonts from the computer as a guideline) with a paint pen, but you can also print them out or copy them with carbon paper. When I was done, I used mod podge to glue the paper to the canvas and then I put a couple coats over the top to give it a nice sheen.
I LOVE it! Here it is...
And the best part for my family, is where it is placed in our house...
My thought is that my kids are going to become VERY familiar with these rules while their sitting in their time outs.
And it's pretty to boot. Beautiful, simple, and practical. All my favs!
Now, for all my other projects... (sigh)
