DIY Dollar Store Photo Booth Backdrop

When I spied this AWESOME editorial photo shoot by JUCO for Alarm Magazine recently, I was completely inspired! So I endeavored to see whether something similar could be re-created affordably as a photo booth backdrop for a party.

New Studio Doors


This post is brought to you by Behr Marquee, Behr’s most advanced paint. Change can be this beautiful, and this easy.

We just finished renovating and decoration the new Oh Happy Day Studio. We are going to start sharing the before and after pictures in the next few weeks. Today we wanted to kick off our first sneak peek with BEHR® paint! We moved into an old sewing factory (a sweat shop!) in San Francisco. Color can be tricky for us because our brand is all about color and we use color so much. Because of that we like to have blank white walls. But I still wanted some other little touches of color so we decided to paint the doors a bright yellow! We chose Behr’s Unmellow Yellow.  It also is a zero VOC and APEO free environmentally friendly option which is so important.
