Big brother nursery gift

We had these three boxes to hang on the wall in our guest room and ended up taking them out and putting them on a shelf in the garage to collect dust.

Now that we are getting the nursery ready for our little girl I would like to do as much DIY projects as possible to make it more homey and of course cheaper!

So I had the idea of having our son Kyler paint the boxes!

He had a great time and they came out super cute!

We used washable children’s paint to keep it as clean as possible.

Of course Ky had a bath immediately after and it easily wipes off of the kitchen floor!

This was definitely fun for all of us and a great gift to his soon to be little sister.

I let them dry and now have them hanging in the nursery and am excited for more projects to come!

Wooden Letters

I’m not the crafty one in the family but I decided I could paint wooden letters for my son’s room.

I bought these letters from Michael’s because they were on sale. I paid under $3 each letter so it’s a pretty cheap project!

I used acrylic paint and paintbrushes/sponges to paint the letters.

They dried very quickly and in my opinion came out great!

I bought a whole bunch of different colored paint but only ended up using the yellow and blue because I liked them best!

Here is a picture of the finished letters.

Give it a try! 🙂

Oh, and the only reason they aren’t hanging up yet is because I’m waiting for my husband to do it so they aren’t crooked! 🙂
