Weekend Project: Paint by Number Wall - Camp Wandawega

This week's weekend project takes us to the most amazing place, Camp Wandawega. If you follow The Lettered Cottage at all you probably know all about this place, but if not, you most certainly have to check out their posts on Camp Wandawega (if you like camps). Owners David Hernandez and Tereasa Surratt bought a tumbledown lakefront resort in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, fixed it up, got married there and now have a baby girl. They've created a special place that includes four buildings ––a hotel, cabins, an archery range, a basketball court, shuffleboard courts, a garage, two piers, and some horseshoe pits. They've even since built an amazing treehouse with the help of their friends and tent hill, a collection of vintage, perfectly weathered, Boy Scout tents. So when expecting their little girl, they created this paint-by-number wall in her nursery (see post about it here). A great cottage nursery idea (or anywhere there are dreaming children I say).

Find an old paint-by-number (on ebay for instance) and give each of the colours a number, matching the numbers to selected paint chips. And once you've selected those, project the paint-by-number on the wall and trace it out using pencil and start painting!  


I couldn't help bring a few photo's of the rest of the camp here to show you, but it's a must visit to see them all at The Lettered Cottage here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4.  And check out Camp Wandawega's site.  Lots of fun pictures, history to ponder.  Transport us! Have an awesome weekend!
