While I was making cookies today I noticed that we have a very open space on the wall in our kitchen. Hmmm, but how to fill the space when we rent and we're technically not aloud to hang anything on the wall unless it's über light and can hang by just those sticky dots? I decided to utilize the clear book protector to create some art for the wall that is 'renting friendly'. Here's how I did it...extra large.
Step 1) My book protector has uniform squares on the back, so I did the ratio math on how wide my fork would have to be to also be about six feet tall and drew it in pencil with the guides on the back.
Step 2) I then outlined the pencil with marker and taped it to my window, backing side down. This is so I could draw the design on the bit that would stick to the wall, using the drawing on the back as a guide.
Step 3) I used an extra large Sharpie, but you could use paint or any product that sticks to the glossy surface of the book protector or contact paper.
Step 4) Then, I cut it out about an inch (2.5 cm) around the drawing and put it on the wall.
Step 5) I smoothed it on carefully, as I didn't want the marker to rub off over onto the white wall.
It worked like a charm! I think it gives our kitchen, even though we're in a rental, some much needed character. Fork, yeah!
