Name Plaques.

kimbaDIY

I’m linking this post to DIY DAY with Kimba.  Please visit her blog and visit the other participants. :) 

I don’t know if you guys have started your spring cleaning (like I have) or not?  I may have jumped the gun but I’m ready to welcome spring!  Oh my!  Hubby is off these few days so I am taking advantage of that!  He hung these letter plaques for me.  I started cleaning in my twins’ bedroom and I thought I was never going to finish!  Whew! I made it though!  Thank the Lord for that!  I went thru all of their toys and threw away old toys that they no longer play with.  I also went thru their clothes and got rid of some that didn’t fit anymore.  I organize everything in the closet.   I still have some things to hang on the walls but I wanted to share with you all a little project I made for them.  :) The color on the wall is Benjamin Moore, Wedgewood Gray.  It is a soft blue.  Love the color.  I intend to paint another bedroom in this color.  IMG_0170 (800x617)

The back part of each letter is  made of wood plaques.  I found these at Hobby Lobby but I do believe I saw them at Walmart too. The letters are also made of wood and I found those at Hobby Lobby.  I used scrap paper and Mod-Podge.  Love that Mod-Podge!  IMG_0173 (800x600)

For the blue, I did use the same paper on both names.  For the black and white , I used different paper but still in the black and white colors.  IMG_0174 (800x424)

And there you have it.  I am also going to make a little valance for that window.  I’d like to find a black and blue fabric though.  I am changing their room to a blue and black theme.  The boys told me that they don’t really care what theme their room will be, as long as it’s for boys. :D  I’m planning on looking for some posters or pictures that are black and white.  Hmm?  I might just make a couple of their pictures into black and white and then frame them.  Oh my brain is working here.  hee heeIMG_0176 (800x314)

Well I hope you guys liked this little project.  I’d like to finish that room this week.  I have so many projects going on right now but I like staying busy like this. :)  I don’t think we ever finish making our house look spiffy, do we? *wink*

I love your Name Plaques, Sandra! Really NEAT ideas!

Probably the one thing I miss about my kids being grown and gone is that their rooms were always so sweet and special. Brandon's was done i Coca Cola and to this day I could kick myself for never getting a picture of him in it.

LOVE the idea! Thinking of doing some for my Miss K!

Love to you~

What a great project! I'm forwarding this to my daughter as inspiration while she decorates her son's room.

Such a cute idea...esp. for twins! I love having kids names on the walls of their rooms and this is a great way to do it!
