Mod Podge Madness - Wall Takeover
Having loved my paper wall since the moment it was done more than six months ago, it nearly broke my heart to see that the gorgeous paper was starting to lift a bit. That double stick tape we used wasn't holding up the way I had hoped. Something had to be done, and quick!
I laid out the wine and apps while the girls took a look at what we were dealing with; lift city! The paper was popping up all over the place, even worse I sometimes caught my shirt on it when I walked too closely...it was awful!
Not too sure of how to approach this thing and after much deliberation, we just went for it. Note to readers, practice on a small area either at the top or bottom before going all in, it helps to know what you are dealing with...whoops. Thankfully, C was a master problem solver and figured out why the paper wasn't sticking. It was as if the tape on the opposite side was acting as a repellant. We would need to take it all off and put it all back on. We got started sloooooow and stteeaaddyy, making sure to not rip a single edge. Next up, I held the paper in place while C used her artistic hand and painted on the mod podge, I was right there smoothing it out.
After much giggling, smoothing and painting, we sat back and waited for it to dry. C was quietly praying it would work, I was planning my next trip to Paper Source should I need new paper and Kelly was snapping pics left and right trying to document each laughable moment.
Thankfully, it did work. The mod podge dried and left the wall looking just as it had when Shell and I first applied it in June. Even better, this paper DEFINITELY wasn't lifting this time! It was glued down nice and tight! Using the knowledge I gained that fateful night, I took to "modging" anything I could find. Stay tuned to see my latest frugal yet fabulous creations!
