How To Make an Oversized Checker Board That Hangs On the Wall

How To Make an Oversized Checker Board That Hangs On the Wall

 

When I was planning out the room design for House for Hope, I immediately knew I would need help.

I was responsible for furnishing the space and filling the room up and adding accessories and furniture and making giant tic tac toe boards for the wall.

All that furnishing and decorating and accessorizing is a lot.

So I turned to my friends.

One of the first companies that stepped up and said they would sponsor the room and help with the furnishings and partner with me to decorate the walls was FrogTape.

Of course they did.

They are super amazing like that.

We worked together last year to raise $5000 for the Humane Society with the imagination room and this year they are back again, helping me spread a little hope.

To say thank you, I created a fun project for the walls of the House for Hope family game room that allows you to play checkers vertically on the wall.

Here’s the DIY and how to make an oversized checker board that hangs on the wall.Continue reading

When did the toe show up in tic tac toe?

Have you ever typed a word and it looked weird?

Like it didn’t belong.

And you checked it and double checked and spell checked it and friend checked it and random person walking by checked it to make sure it was spelled right.  But even then.  Even after all that checking and rechecking it still didn’t look right.

That was me with tic tac toe.

Somehow in my brain it was tick tack to?  Or tic tack too?  Or tick tac too?

I’m not sure about the spelling, but the project?

It’s one of my favorite ones we’ve ever made.

Here’s how to make a DIY over-sized, three-dimensional, interactive tic tac toe board. Continue reading

A Little Hope From a House

 

If you’ve never met me before…

….there’s one thing you should know.

I’m a jumper.

A feet-firster.

A yesser now and a thinker later.

An “of course I canner” and a “I got thisser.”

There are days when I wish I thought a little more and looked around and held my finger up to the wind and thought about it before I jumped.

But I can’t help it.

It’s how I’m made.Continue reading

Hanging Shelf

Just in case you are wondering…..I’m not really cool or hip.

I try.

Really.  I do.

I mean….I wear red lipstick and sunglasses and amazing earrings and blinged out sweaters and cute flip-flops and colored jeans.

And I know colored jeans are in this year.  Kelly and Luke from 90210 told me so in that Old Navy commercial.Continue reading
