So many of you may wonder why the post name is what it is. Well a little background story: My Grandparents before they remodeled their house in Utah. Had a wall that as you went down the stairs into the basement, was covered in all kinds of different carpet pieces ( different sizes, colors, style, etc.). I LOVED the wall as a little girl and was very upset when they got rid of it ( I may be the only one in the family that was ). Of course there is no way on earth my husband will let me do that on our wall ( and believe me I am crazy like that and probably would do it ). When we moved I found this great chest for my fabric to go in and in the drawers are some other craft things.
I was not a really big fan of the top and was wanting something different ( other than painting it ). So after about a day it finally hit me, I will make my own type of carpet wall! So that is what I did ( and I stayed up tell 4a.m. putting it together ).
So for anyone that has never mod podged before ( again many people do it different ways, and that is just fine) but how I do it is I take what ever I am working with, in this case paper. I dip the brush in the mod podge and get enough to paint on the back of the paper ( sometime with heavier weight paper I will put a little mod podge on the surface I am working with as well) once you have it painted on, then just lay it down watching for those bubbles and smoothing it out as you lay it. Then repeat with the next piece.
- I then just kept on repeating those steps, section by section as I pieced the paper where I thought it looked good.
There you have it! My version of my Grandparents carpet wall.
I hope you all enjoy and if you have questions feel free to leave a comment.
