  Ever since I saw a cluster of the alphabet in Pottery Barn’s magazine I’ve wanted to do my own version.  Fast forward a couple of years and I finally got around to doing this project.  We recently rearranged bedrooms in our house so this left me freshly painted walls to decorate. I knew this project could get spendy so first, I looked around the house and had a few of these letters, the “J” was a decoration from my craft table.  I also picked up some of the lesser used letters (Q, V, X, Z) on clearance for $.60.  Every little bit helps, right?
hen I had to dig in my stash and find some really fun printed papers.  Most of these happen to be October Afternoon papers…one of my favorite paper companies!  I used Modge Podge to adhere the paper to the letter.  I painted the rest of the letters and made a few of them special. The “Z” is chalk board paint and the “R” has Viva Decor Pearls on it.
I really like the way this project turned out and the kids love it too.  My mini 2 year old munchkin points and starts singing the alphabet when she sees this. 
Have you recently finished a project that you love? I’d love to hear about it.

It looks amazing!! I'm working on one right now and am definitely finding that buying letters is expensive! Great tip to look for clearance letters! :)
