Gotham City Skyline....sort of

Yes, sort of. I didn't recreate an exact replica of Gotham City; just no. 
Here is my version of a simple, imperfect city skyline to incorporate into my hubby's 'Bat Cave'. 





 I had some leftover small bat wing logos. I lightly modpodged them onto the sky.


How to Spray-Paint a Leather Chair

Mr. B. wanted this chair from my Gramma sooooo bad. It's a plush, large leather chair she had as a pair in her entrance sitting area. She gave it to him like it was nothing. Hmph, what can I get so easily? Just kidding. She'd give you anything you asked for.

I had no idea where this man wanted to put such a huge chair. With the Batcave project in planning stages, a spot was found for it. But how does a brown chair fit into a Batman/ batcave theme?

Ah, old faithful spray-paint.






Again, this chair was BROWN! 
You must work with the paint as it is wet so the wet colors merge. Work in separate areas at one time if you're not quick enough. For instance, if you're too intimidated and find yourself working slow, work with the back first, then another section, and so forth. 

I began by spraying the chair with the dominant color black. While the black paint was still wet and at a distance, I sparingly sprayed the secondary color of the blue. The keyword on the secondary color is spar…

Batman Wing Wall Light

Who hasn't made this light yet? Since I'm "married to Batman" it was inevitable for me to make one. This was an easy project. The only issue I ran into was finding sturdy cut-out material large enough for the wings I had already cut out. The foam poster board wasn't large enough and I hauled the largest pieces of cardboard from work, to no avail. I finally decided to purchase a foam tri-fold board. I always bypassed it thinking the center piece was the same size as the regular foam poster board. I was wrong and it worked great!
MATERIALS USED black tri-fold foam board (center piece only) short light kit (I had orange leftover from a Halloween stash; they'll do). tape picture hanging clips with nails hammer cutting tools: Xacto knife, boxcutter paint pen or marker
