goodbye dora, hello polka dots...

so of course my daughter loved dora, so what did we change her nursery over to? dora, of course... did you get my past tense... LOVED?? yes we are so over dora, so we are redoing the room again, a big big girl room. =) no more dora! hoorah!!

so we start with this dora night light.
{i appologize again for bad photos, remember i craft after bedtime}

i didn't want to get rid of it because it worked perfectly. it was just that ugly cover {no offense dora, we've just had enough of you!}
so i got to thinking... what would be the easiest way to make the night light awesome again??

MOD PODGE... my newly found love of course!!
so we whipped out the mod podge, our choice of paper, scissors, pencil, and sponge brush.
and this is how it turned out...
{again remember the reason for the bad pictures}

it was such an EASY project!! i would do it again in a million years. can you tell what theme we decided to go with? stay tuned to see how her room redo goes! it's still very much a work in progress though.

lets look at the pictures one more time...

yep, i'm satisfied!! hope you all have a wonderful tuesday!!

i'm linking to these parties:


  1. Nice save on the night light! Thanks for showing us this on Modern Craftswoman Monday! Rory

  2. HA! I'm so over Dora as well! I wish my kids could get over her, too!!! The polka dots are too cute!!

  3. That Modge Podge is cool stuff.

    I bet the new room will look really great! (And I'm sure the Dora room was awesome, too.)

    Can you believe I painted a "Jurassic Park" mural on my sons' wall years ago, and it's still there? Seriously, it must be 20 years old. But the boys don't seem to mind, LOL!
