{"BIKE SHOP" - PT. 4 - RACE NUMBER WALLPAPER}

Saturday, July 5, 2014

I've made some serious progress on the bike shop this past week. Yay! For those who haven't been following, I started organizing my husband Dan's bike shop, which has been a place I havn't dared organize for years. First, I cleared out the clutter. Next, I updated baskets and buckets with just a little bit of paint. Then, I made beer cap magnets. Today, I'm sharing one of my favorite projects inthe room - a "wallpaper" I creataed by putting Dan's old race numbers on the wall.

When I found a box full of race numbers, I knew I wanted to use them in the space, but it wasn't until I spent several minuts just staring at the boring white wall below that I had my eureka moment ... wallpaper!! Knowing these numbers mean a lot to my husband, I didn't want to ruin them so I'd have the get creative.

Since not wanted to ruin the race numbers was my goal, I decided to use Command Adhesive Strips to adhere them to the wall. Because the numbers were so light, I cut up the command strips into smaller pieces. The steps I followed are below:

  • Cut the strip in half

  • Place strip on two corners of the race number

  • Peal off backing

  • Stick to wall

This project wasn't difficult, but it was time consuming so I did it over the course of a couple days. And when I stepped back and saw the finsihed project, I LOVED it! I was so glad I found a really cool way to use his race numbers. To me, the space now screams "Guys place", which is what I was going for.

That's it this week Nesters! Next week I'll be sharing the next (and maybe final) layer to finish organizing this space - the highlight are the wall mounted bike racks.
