I wanted to try my hand at the wood nursery letters and it was easier than I thought! Here's what I came up with (and also Baby Hare's name, love it or hate it- it ain't changing)
|Pardon the ridiculously dark dinner table- not the best backdrop|
If you know me, you know I can't draw a straight line, so hand painting designs on the letters was out of the question. Thank goodness for ultra fun scrapbook papers, mod podge, and an x-acto knife! The best part is that I got to pick papers and designs that will compliment Brooklyn's nursery bedding.
The wood letters came from woodlandmanufacturing.com where you get to pick the size, thickness and font of your letters. I needed a thinner font since there are so many letters in her name. The regular block style letters they carry at Michael's would have taken up an entire wall. I also didn't want all caps for that same reason. They come unpainted (you can purchase them already painted) so I had to put a few coats of white paint on them before decorating.
After deciding what papers would go where and lots of cutting, gluing, and trimming I added a few embellishments and that's that.
We still have 4-6 weeks until the furniture arrives so once that's in and all up I'll post pics of the letters on the wall.
