I am under the weather and honestly not feeling well. Our plans for Easter fell through, because I was not up for traveling. I am feeling a little better, and spent most of the weekend in bed.
Prior to the weekend, I had started on an Easter project for Mur-Man and my nephews. I wanted to create an under-the-couch Lego tray. I think they turned out great.
The project started at a book sale at my little city, ND college. They had frames for sale for $1.00! I snagged three!
I removed the prints and purchased foam-core at Wal-Mart for $1.50/sheet. Three frames required three sheets of foam-core. I attached the frames to the foam-core using wood glue.
I purchased the Lego building plates at yoyo.com. Overall, they were the most affordable option with the smaller blue/green plates selling for $5.00/plate.
I did purchase vinyl letters for the trays. I purchased them from a local printing shop for $3.00/tray.
Using wood glue and scissors, I was able to cut the Lego plate to fit and attach it to the foam-core.
I did test-out the plates to ensure they were spaced properly.
Mur-man received his tray Easter morning. By the way, this is Max our new Goldendoodle. He has a haircut scheduled Tuesday! We are in LOVE!
|Mur-Man is also using his Lego Drawer! It works slick and can roll in and out of his room (easy to put away)!|
Mur-Man also got Walkie-Talkies for Easter. We have tried them out. Mur-Man's call sign is Cosmo, Steve is Bubba, and I am Bahama Mamma (love it)!
Steve freaked me out today by sporting a stache! Totally creapy! It lasted roughly two hours and I am happy to report--it is gone! THANK GOD!
For Easter Dinner, Steve made me Pioneer Woman Prime Rib. It was DELICIOUS!
