DIY Photobooth Style Pictures

October 22, 2012

I’m addicted to Pinterest! I’ve been seeing a lot of pins lately of people using engineering prints. Everyone was raving about how cheap it is to get 36 X 48 black & white engineering prints printed at Staples. So I knew I had to do this!

Tyler and I took pictures of each other then did Cheerio’s and picked our best ones and figured out the order that we wanted them in. I did all of this in Photoshop then sent it to Staples online. We picked it up within the hour. It only cost us around $7 with tax. What an amazing deal!

The best part was that Home Depot was just next door. We went and bought plywood, spray paint and 3M 3M Super 77 Multipurpose Adhesive for around $13.

Tyler spray painted the plywood pieces black after we cut them up (12 x 48). We cut up the pictures then used spray adhesive to put them on. We put another picture on the back of the board to try mod podge to seal the pictures. They didn’t turn out good at all because of the texture of the plywood. We just decided not to seal them as they look good already.

We hung them up in the living & dining room. We still have some more things to do in these rooms anyways. I love it! It’s pretty much the first thing people will see when they walk in.

      Lora, we cut our pictures to around 12 x 12. It’s the perfect size since I didn’t want them to be too small or too big. :)
