Hey there! I have been trying to decorate my kids bathroom for quite a while now. I’ve been torn on a style/theme because I have two older boys and a baby girl. I need something unisex but I also want it to be a “kids bathroom”. I knew right when I saw the awesome alphabet nursery wall on pinterest that I had my inspiration….I just needed to make it less frilly!
This is what I came up with for about $65 and here’s how I did it!
I purchased 10 1×3 furring strips at Home Depot and cut them to the measurements above.
The measurements are long point to long point.
I used Gorilla Glue wood glue to build the frames…
I chose Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut stain for the frames. Paint 1 coat on with a foam brush or roller and wipe away with a cloth after 5 minutes!
I purchased my alphabet at Hobby Lobby. I picked many sizes and bought them when unfinished wood was 40% off. I only spent $53 but you could definitely spend less if you purchase smaller/cheaper letters! Before painting the letters and hanging them on the wall, I laid everything out on the floor and took a picture to refer to later.
Spray paint the letters with Rust-Oleum Flat White.
Now to hang the letters
I chose to hang the frames and letters with 3M Command Strips. You can use sticky tack also but the Command Strips are so easy and do not damage the paint on your walls
Command Strips aren’t cheap so I cut them in pieces for the letters to save money
That’s it!!! I tried to get the best pictures possible but my bathroom is a galley style and I had a hard time capturing the entire wall…so please bare with me
I am in LOVE with the way my unisex, juvenile bathroom is shaping up! I have so many more ideas for it and I can’t wait to share them all with you!
Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Halloween
