What we will be doing this weekend...

Our Halloween party is nearly a week away and this is how we are going to spend our upcoming weekend.

Turning our garage from THIS...



Into THIS!

A great trick for covering up garage walls, tools (and loads of junk) is to hang black plastic from the ceiling to the floor. Being a Halloween fanatic, we take it a step further and sponge paint blocks on the black plastic to give it a bit of dimension. In the past, Chris has used a car washing sponge to paint blocks. The last two years he and Emma started using a cheap mop from the Dollar Store. The sponge on the mop was the perfect size and the handle made it easy for stamping paint.
