I am in the middle of redoing my little guy’s room, as many of you may know. To keep up with all of our projects from start to finish, be sure to follow us on Instagram! I feel the need to stress in each post that I do love this boy very much, and also miss his crib. It has been so fun giving him a new ‘big boy’ room, but I miss the CAGE! Nights have been hard. That’s all. Thank you for listening.
I really wanted to put his name on the wall somewhere. I found the perfect corner for it, and I LOVE how it turned out!
Now these couldn’t be any easier!
I found these great, black letters at Hobby Lobby for $4 a piece.
They were messed up and kind of scratched, but I had big plans for these babies!
To start, I rubbed a bit of Vaseline in different spots on all of the letters.
The Vaseline will keep the next coat of paint from sticking.
I used Rust-Oleum Colonial Red Satin spray paint for my letters. I also used my comfort grip to save my fingers and my manicure 😉 LOVE this thing… I have like 6 of them!
I gave all my letters a good coat of paint!
After they dried, I used a small sanding pad to lightly mess up my edges. Where I put the Vaseline, the paint lifted off to give them a ‘chippy’ look.
Time to hang them up! This part is simple too! I used 3M Command Strips for this part.
All you do is stick two of them together like this…
Next I peeled off one cover and attached it to the back of my letter. I used two strips for each letter.
Then, I just peeled off the other tab and attached it to the wall!
That’s it! Told you it was easy And, I LOVE how it turned out! I think it add so much to his room What do you think?
$4 a letter and I had the whole thing done during nap time… These are my favorite kind of projects!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Let me know if you have any questions at all!
