January is a month of birthday celebrations in our house.
It's the boys month.
It begins with Mr. RLC's and ends with my little one's birthday, which makes me kind of sad :(
My little boy is quickly turning into a little man.
His birthday is next weekend and since is also game day, we're going to have a Super Bowl - Birthday Celebration.
I think it fits him very well, he's the one who has induced us to gain interest about the game, I've been very slowly understanding the game rules thru all the explanations he keeps on giving me, and also to his dad (he's been turning his dad into an entry level sports enthusiast - really!).
So the project today, is something we're going to use while we watch the game, cheer at the teams and celebrate one more year of having this wonderful boy in our lives.
Obviously, he was a big help during this project. ;)
The most important material you'll need is a cabinet door and a set of handles, that easy!
I used the one I took from my kitchen cabinet that is now holding the plate rack here. Yep, I'm not missing this door, and it's been laying around waiting to serve another purpose.
I'm glad it was already white, that shortened my job. Tape lines were placed to create the football field divisions.
Then, number stickers and letters for the touchdown were added before painting the whole thing green.
Once dry, the stickers were removed.
I didn't have a nice set of handles, instead I grab some scrap pieces of wood and those thingamaginga black things, I really don't know what those are, (if you know, let me know), they were in a box full of screws and things that the mister had.
And I think they work great as a part of the handles.
The birthday boy had to have his football field goals, so he made them.
The bottles were a Christmas present - My daughter painted the stitches.
It's a big tray. On game day it's going to be full of food and placed right on top of the coffee table.
For now, only cup cakes and soda.
Hopefully, there's not going to be deflated balls. ;)
Our teams -Raven, Redskins or Dallas- are not in. :(
But, I'm going to cheer for the East coast team. What's your team?!
