Nearly two years ago, when my daughter was growing in my belly, I thought it would be a great idea to buy some of those pre-cut wooden letters to decorate the kids’ room with. Since the two would be sharing a room, I was trying to come up with some fun ideas that would give them each something of their own in the room. I think I searched all over town before I finally found all the right letters for both of their names. Unfortunately, they ended up being slightly different sizes and styles. The letters have been sitting on a shelf now for well over a year just waiting to be painted.
A week or so ago, I finally got them out to paint. When Zach saw what I was doing he wanted to help too. I let him do the first coat of paint, then I did a second coat to cover up any splotches.
I had really grand ideas of how I was going to paint these. Evie’s were supposed to have flowers and butterfly designs painted on. With Zach’s I wasn’t sure, but I figured I would come up with some kind of design to decorate them with. As you can see, I did none of that. To save time, I just went with solid colors. Since I did Evie’s all in the same color, I used a little bit of ribbon to tie some bows for decoration.
They weren’t at all what I had in mind when I started out, but they’ll still spruce up the room a little.
