Another Designing 4 Hope project included a LEGO-inspired room. We made 8 Large LEGO's to hang around the room.
Starting with a 4' x 8' sheet of plywood....
Nick cut 8 @ 10"x20", 16 @ 2 1/2"x20" and 16 @ 2 1/2"x8 1/2"
The sides were nailed to the bottom of the top piece using a nail gun with finish nails...
All the boxes were primed with Kilz2 latex primer...
Using a drill with a hole saw attachment, 2 circles for each LEGO were cut and nailed to the top of the LEGO. Nail holes and srill holes are filled with wood filler and sanded.
I used sample paints in Red, Yellow, Green and Blue from Home Depot instead of buying full quarts.
Wendy, owner of Wendy Campo Photography was one of our fantastic volunteers that took pictures and helped bring the room alive! Check out her blog, she is an amazing photograper and inspriation!
Larger LEGOs were used to spell SAM for above the bed. I tried so many different types of glue and none of them seemed to work. They held together well enough for me to use an air stapler to staple them together on the back side. (he he :D I said back side!)
How about some inspiration for a LEGO Halloween costume!!!??? This is adorable and so easy to make!
Designing 4 Hope is a non-profit organization that creates bedroom makeovers for critically ill children and their siblings. This LEGO makeover was for a sibling of Lou, who was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphnoma. You can see all the makeovers and Lou's story on this video.
