My plan is to graffiti the wall ..... on the inside....around my front door at the Duck.
Here is the before...
Here is the after i painted the design i wanted to use. my first thought was just to glue straight onto the wall. and after messing with that for an hour....decided that was not going to work. so, i cut out pieces of luan to approximate the size i wanted...glued onto that.....let it dry overnight....then attached it to the wall with glue and screws.
This is how much i got done in 4 days. this was SOOOO much fun...that is all i did.
Here are some close ups..starting with the black at the bottom
I think the blue section is my favorite. i used letters to spell SEA....there are a lot of sea things ....fish, starfish, dolphin, turtle, etc.
This tree is a McDonalds toy. the trunk door lifts open and there is .... i guess....Ronald in there. the leaves swing open also and show a parrot and a monkey
My sister found this little robot for me at a thrift store. i left his arms unglued and they raise up and down
I could have stayed another week and kept on gluing.....but my dh would be down there looking for me. haha
I still do need to go back and put stuff in to cover where the colors meet. .... and cover the screws....and fill in around the electric plug. there will be a small piece of trim next to the door that will seal off the side. but, overall, i think it turned out just as i envisioned it.
I did cut out the pieces of luan for the pink, white and yellow to go up the rest of that side and across the top. i brought those pieces home with me so i can glue them up and when i go back i'll just have to attach them to the wall.
Will definitely be the funkiest house in the neighborhood. haha i have to go on the hunt for more graffiti stuff.....this uses a LOT of stuff.
After gluing down the large pieces....then smaller pieces....then it takes hours to fill in the little spaces with buttons and beads. but, oh so much fun.
