Master Bedroom Dry Erase Posters

Yowzer. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I unveiled my master bedroom makeover. Geez, how this past year has flown by.

So I first saw these free printables from My Sister’s Suitcase and thought they would look awesome in my bedroom makeover (mostly since my husband is notorious for saying this phrase… yeah, he’s like a 14 year old boy).

Oh my, how I LOVE this stuff! It has a bit of a yellowish-brownish tint to it so it gives the antiqued look and feel. Just a quick coat before I placed the paper on the frame and two coats on top of the paper to seal it in.
