Family Rules Wall Hanging

Awhile back I was super excited to win a gift certificate to Staker Sensations. I picked out their family rules vinyl as one of my items. I’ve been wanting the family rules up in our house for some time!
First I grabbed a board and a wood applique.
I used some wood Gorilla Glue to attach the applique to my board.
I clamped the applique down so the glue could set. I ran out of clamps, so it was snack clips to the rescue! Whatever works right?
I painted the board a flat black and gave it a little distressing.

I was able to peel off the vinyl and apply it pretty easily. Although there is a letter missing…..can you find it? I have no idea how it happened or where the letter has gone! I’m going to try and make a replacement letter.
I added a picture hanger to the back and hung it up on a post we have in the middle of the great room.
I love it! My kids are too young to read it now, but I am sure that over the years I will be reminding them to refer to the “list”!
Linking up to these great link parties!

  6. That turned out very well…I have had the same problem with wall vinyl decor…those little letters just dont always want to come off…tricky and not as easy as the directions state…It looks great. Remember to check out my 100 Follower Giveaway at The Cranky Queen, tiff

  7. Turned out great and looks really perfect for the spot you hung it.
