I am in full playroom makeover mode. I have been searching online for cute candyland ideas, and found this:It is a Candy Dot bench which can be purchased from here for a mere $1200. Let me grab my checkbook. Yeah right!
One thing that bench is missing is the green dots. I love how the color blend together. $1,200 is a bit much, but it sure did inspire me:
First gather supplies. Loved the paint colors, but it would have taken so many coats and minutes to paint each ball, so I scratched that idea and went with spray paint.
After a good 3 hours, I was FINALLY done! Exhausting making 63 halves!!
I made this for the original bird room... all I needed to do was scrape off the paint...
Ok, so scraping didn't fully get off all the paint...
I grabbed my nail polish remover, and it almost did the trick...
I then ran to my paint box and luckily I had a perfect match for the white!!!
I officially love spray paint. It would have taken me FOREVER to paint all 63 dots!! This took no longer than 5 minutes to paint. I'd say it probably took like only 3 minutes really. Since it was spray paint, I couldn't get the EXACT colors I wanted, but I think the end result still turned out nicely...
TADA!!! I'm in love.
It turned out so much better than I expected! :)
EEK! Makes me so happy! :)
I wasn't sure I could do the famous Candy Dot blended look, but I think I pulled it off quite nicely if I do say so myself! :)
This project took me about 5 hours, 4.5 of it was prep work.
If I didn't have to get rid of the birds it would have saved me and hour and a half. So it takes about 3 hours to cut all the styrofoam balls.
$25 for styrofoam balls
$14 for spray paint
$50 at Target for the cube storage, (I am going off memory, I believe that is what they cost).
***please excuse the mess in the playroom, I am reorganizing, repainting, and redecorating. It will be disheveled for awhile.***
