When my girls were in elementary school they would have their school pictures taken. The school was very creative and one year decided that the photos should be plastered on this sailboat shaped piece of wood. Are ya following me so far? Years later my girls cringed at the sight of these photos. And so we peeled them off and were left with “this” wood piece.
Now you know me I love a good challenge and so I wanted to repurpose or reuse it And repurpose it I did, into an easy children’s wall art. Today I’m going to show you how I did it. Nothing goes to waste in my house!
- wood sail or any wood scrap can be used
- acrylic or chalk paint
- an image that you like, I took one from a children’s book
- sharpie marker
- Mod Podge
The How – To
The first step was to brush the wood piece with some paint. Two coats of white chalk paint, and haphazardly at that.
Now back to the project. I cut out the image in an oval shape making sure it would fit on my piece of wood. And I glued it on with Mod Podge.
The whole thing was then brushed over with Mod Podge sealing it in.
Of course he will!

I must admit this is the strangest thing I’ve ever repurposed. Have you ever found wood in strange shapes like this?
