Let’s get crafty

Looking for a quick update or craft? Spruce up a room with a wooden letter, or letters and a can of spray paint.

I wanted to add a pop of color in the kitchen and dress up my otherwise bland pantry door. I have an open floor plan and the door is clearly visible from the family room. So I purchased three eight inch letters for about $3.00 each. You can get them at most big box or craft stores, mine came from Walmart. From there I only needed a can of spray paint. I chose a bright blue in Krylon but any brand will work.

Laying them out on a plastic covering – grocery bags work for this – and spraying them lightly in long sweeping strokes with the paint, I left them overnight to dry. I recommend using disposable gloves to avoid messy hands.

I didn’t want to put nails in my door, and if you live in a rental, you may not be able to, so I opted for two sided 3M Command strips. Easy to apply, easy to remove without damaging the door. From there it was an easy process to hang them and I was left with a fun little message on my otherwise boring pantry door and pop of color in the room.

You can use this idea to add something fun to a children’s bedroom, laundry room your family name or favorite activity above your kitchen cabinets. It’s inexpensive, fun and personal. The possibilities are only limited to your imagination.

Supply List:
