Decorating With Letters

Posted on: June 23, 2011

Before Julia was born, I found these adorable white wooden ABC letters at Hobby Lobby. Since we had decided on her name, I went ahead a bought the letters to hang in her room. Once Hannah was born, I got the letters for her name too. Since moving {not only from house to house in Iowa, but across the country} the letters have been tucked away in our closet for “later”.

“Later” finally came last week. Inspired by a sign hanging in the girls’ room, we choose the colors.

Jonathan, being the genius that he is, came up with a whole scheme for which letters should be which color:

So I got to work. I laid out all the letters that coordinated with a certain color:

Then I started painting, or spraying, however you want to look at it:

After working most of the morning, this is my end result:

What fun projects have you done lately?Β

So cute!! I have been wanting to do something like that for my kids. Maybe I could try it!

I always have a hard time deciding where to hang pictures, decorations, etc. when I move, let along taking on a new project! Great job!!
Do you live near a Hobby Lobby, so you can buy some letters for baby #3? πŸ™‚ If not, let me know!! We can get them for you here!

There is one close by! Not sure what we will do for his room, since the letters are more girly. Jonathan really wants a whole Spurs theme. πŸ˜‰

THAT is adorable! You and Jodi have me inspired to decorate–once I’m in my 2nd trimester! I think I’ll be very nesty…:D

OK that is brilliant and looks amazing! I love the colors and the way they are put up on the wall. I bet your girls love it!! πŸ™‚

The girls do love it! Julia keeps talking about her “letters”. “Look mom, those are my letters. Look mom, do you see my J? Look mom, there’s purple!”

Very cute! I made a banner for Hudson’s room with the letters of his name. It’s actually made out of cardboard! I got the idea from something I saw on etsy. But I just found the font I liked on word and printed out large letters on cardstock so I could cut them out to make stencils. Then I traced them onto cardboard and cut them out with a box cutter and painted them with craft paint. It was easy, but I love how it looks and the fact it was dirt cheap. Most people would not guess it’s cardboard, and it’s fun that it’s a “green” project as well.

Wow, that turned out awesome! Way to go!!!

Oh they turned out adorable!! What a great project and you did such a wonderful job.

So cheerful! We’ve been in our home 4 years and still have next to nothing on the walls…

Very cute. I’ve cut out fabric so I can make a reusable shopping bag. I’ll get around to sewing it soon…

How cute! We did something similar for our girls, except I let them paint the letters and then put white polk-a-dots on over the base color. They turned out cute. I like the idea of painting the letters all different colors. Adds character and total cuteness!


Love it! And was that the same spray paint you used for the mason jars? =)

How fun! It’s so cute too! πŸ™‚

I love it! I have the letters all painted already for my daughter’s room but just haven’t put them up yet. Maybe I should :).

I was worried about them getting painted but not put up too! Haha! So my husband hung them first and then I painted them {I figured get his job outta of the way and then I’d be in the clear}.

I’m glad everyone really likes the project! πŸ™‚ I must say, it has completed “finished” the room and I love walking in there. It just feels like the perfect little girl’s {girls’} room now!

I can totally see that it’s SO cute, way to go Sarah and Jon!

What a cute idea! The letters look awesome πŸ™‚ I totally know that feeling of wanting to look into a completed kid’s room and think it looks perfect! Well done!
