And here is my version:
I didn't want to paint directly on the wall, so we used an extra piece of wood measuring 24 x 24. Differences from the original: I wanted it to have a distressed look, and Logan wanted it to say "sk8ter" on it. Total cost: $0. I had the wood and paint already.
I used plywood because I already had a piece in the garage. It is a very light wood too, so it's easy to hang. They sell them at Home Depot and Lowe's already cut to this size.
I gave it a coat of white house paint.Using my printer, I printed the decal picture onto a transparency. I used my projector to enlarge it to the size of the wood and traced it. I've had my projector for about 5 years and I use it quite often. I bought mine new at Office Max for about $100, but some libraries or even schools loan theirs out. Perhaps you could find one on Craig's List? Anyway, I love having one.
I used craft paint to paint inside the silhouette. It took 2 coats.
I' ve had the glaze forever, but it still works. I mixed it with brown craft paint to distress the back. I also used a brown ink pad as well.
It was a quick and easy project, and saved me some moola! Now if I could just find him a bed frame...:)
