I decorated my sons room back in 2011. He has just celebrated his 11th birthday (ooh he’s growing up so fast) and asked if he could change a few things in his room.
Thankfully he still loves his painted wall and bed cover. But he asked if I could change the framed pictures. He used to love Star Wars The Clone Wars, but he has outgrown this and now enjoys The Simpsons.
We purchased a 2014 Simpsons Calendar for 75% off at a local department store which cost $4… bargain! The calendar was filled with fun and bright images that could easily be trimmed and used for new pictures in the frames.
I used 3M Command Strips (RRP $6.99) when I put his frames up a few years ago. I chose to use these 3M Picture Hanging strips just in case he didn’t want them on his wall anymore. They can easily be removed without damaging the walls. I use 3M strips and hooks all through my home, in cupboards, to hold up ribbon in my gift wrapping station, our family photo wall, even in my shower and so many more places!!
The strips come in either black or white, ideally black are for dark frames and white for light frames. However I have chosen white strips so you can easily see how they would sit on the back of the frame. There is also a variety of different sized stripes, the largest can hold up to 7kg.
Instructions on the pack recommend cleaning the surface with isopropyl rubbing alcohol. This can be found at the hardware store, chemists or I use Isocol found in the beauty aisle at the supermarket.
We used a laser level to ensure they all lined up straight
The new pictures look great, so fun and bright. This was a really quick and easy mini makeover!
