you’re going to smudge and smush and fingerpaint your way to an awesome piece of artwork—perfect for a little boy’s room (or a big boy’s room!)

also, a helper.

my mdf board was a leftover piece snagged from the in-laws. it was roughly primed and even had some pencil lines (as you can see in the above photo). i used it as-is. if you have an unprimed board that’s your first step.

***if you have a cricut or silhouette or grasshopper or whatever then obviously this would be much easier. but here at the googiehaus we kick it old-school.

the last thing i did was take a paper towel and rub different spots. because the paint was not completely dry it acted like light sandpaper, peeling and wearing down different spots.

once it was completely dry i painted all the edges black and used heavy duty screw in eyehooks on the top. it was a kit from walmart that came with the eyehooks, wire, nail and hanging bracket for like $1.50. because this is MDF you don’t want to skimp on the hardware—it’s heavy!

hang it up…
