Stilettos and Diapers: Cooper's Big Boy Room Wall Art

Cooper's Big Boy Room Wall Art

When I saw this awesome big boy room at Thrifty Decor Chick I knew I wanted to find the same artwork. I just love all the vintage airplanes!

I went to Allposters.com and found these prints for $3.99 each. I got some basic white 14x18 frames at Michaels for $10 and some textured poster board for $2.50 a sheet. 
I set Coop up with some crayons, coloring books and of course, Goldfish, and went to town.
 I used the back of the frame to cut out a "mat" to the perfect size. Make sure you push down on the frame back so the exacto knife cuts a straight line.
 I cut the size of the poster out leaving equal space on all sides and using the same frame back for straight lines. 
 All I could think about before that first cut was Handy Manny saying "measure twice, cut once". Haha...such a Mom.
 I put a small piece of tape on the top and bottom of the back of the poster to hold in place, then put it in the frame.
 I am so happy with how they turned out! The first one says "From the Gulf to New York" which the move I made to be with the hubs. New York is where hubs is from and San Francisco is where Cooper was born. 
As soon as we get the room painted, they will be hanging on the wall. Can't wait!
