PROJECT: A den backdrop consisting of a wall piece and a floor piece
TIME: A few hours
MATERIALS: two large pieces of foam board, scrapbook paper, acrylic paint, paintbrush, small wooden frame front, artwork, clear tape, painter’s tape
Welcome to our den!
I was so excited to get the Music & Movies Entertainment Set for my birthday! I love it because it looks a lot like my own entertainment setup (it just needs a couple of video game consoles!). But to really show it off, I wanted to make a den backdrop – something that would store easily, be adjustable, and be relatively cheap and easy to make.
First, I took one of the large foam boards and painted it a light turquoise color. (In retrospect, I should’ve taped it down at the edges or something, because it did curl slightly as it dried.) At the same time, I painted an unfinished wooden frame front that I found at Michael’s in the wooden items section.
While those were drying, I took the second piece of foam board and covered with wooden floor print scrapbook paper.
Once the frame was completely dry, I took a piece of artwork and taped it to the back. Then, I attached the frame to the wall backdrop using painter’s tape.
The den with a few accessories…
Add a cloth placemat rug and a few accessories, and the scene is set! Lea and a few friends can be spending a relaxing day inside reading or watching TV…
Time to take some pictures!
