Happy Hump Day to all of you out there! It has been a slow week, and when I say slow I mean slower than a snail, its verging on ridiculous but on with todays project. So you can see below its not super pretty or super straight or super anything. This project is by no means a failure, but I can see that it does need a little extra work that I had not thought about.
So this was the dumbest idea I had and will fix this too when I do my redo, but I decided it would be best to use string to connect each circle. When I do the redo I will use metal sticks to make sure its even and not lopsided like this mess here. But I used string on 4 sides and was ready for the next step.
I used a flat surface to line up all the paint chips in the order or color that I wanted (2 of each color)
The I flipped them over
Using tape and upholstry thread (because thats what I have in the house dont judge!) and taped the thread to the backs of the chips leaving enough string to tie the chips to the metal frame.
You can kinda see the string a tape better in this picture. I did about 20 of these and was ready for the last phase...attachment.
I decided to hot glue these to the frame to make sure they dont swing around and show the backs, which started out as good idea as I did the bottom section.
See the hot glue here.
But as I made my way around, I noticed the biggest error which no hot glue can save me from...you can still see the backs because the circle is so big. The hot glue worked great as was a fantastic idea, but since you can still see the backs I am going to have to take them all down and attach another paint chip of the same color to the back so it looks amazing no matter what. I will give you and update when I have enough patience to get this going again.
Now you go try this at home, trust me it was harder than I thought but I am sure once I make some adjustments its going to be awesome!! What do you think, any suggestions on how to make this better?
