So writing the post on my playroom projects got me moving a bit. I thought I'd give an update.
Magnetic Chalkboard - Alrighty, this one is done! I bought the drip pan at Wal-Mart for $11.99, chalkboard spray paint from Lowes (not sure of the price - the hubs bought it), and Velcro strips from target for $6.99. All up, this project probably cost in the $25 range. Gigi won't be able to use it for awhile but it'll be a fun addition for when she's ready. The only thing I don't like is that the drip pan has some writing imprinted on it and you can still see it after putting on the paint. For the price, I can't complain but it's a bit annoying.
I'm now looking for the plastic magnetic letters but can't find them at Wal-Mart or Target. I'll probably just have to order them from Amazon like everything else.
Texture Board - This one is mostly done. I have one more ring I want to do but thanks to my sister, Jillian, I was able to get the rings attached to the cork board without using any tacks. She suggested velco strips and I had a few tucked away so I gave it a go. I take the rights down and let Gigi feel them so she can see different textures. I can also change out the fabric as I want to.
Alphabet Wall - I finished up the letters I bought as a test run and I really liked them so I've bought all the other letters I need (they were 40% off at Hobby Lobby!). I plan on starting the rest of the letters this week. I'm hoping to have them done in the next couple of weeks.
I still haven't done the book shelves. They're currently hidden away in her closet and I forget about them. I should take them out and then maybe I'll get them done. I've a new project to the list - a growth ruler for the wall! She's already 27" tall and I don't want to miss anymore so I've got to get this one done quick!
