Wall Monogram...

I have had a monogram in Connor's room for quite a while now, and have not been pleased with it because I felt like it did not "pop" against his walls. I decided today that I was gonna try to paint a border around it and see what happened.

I got these letters before Connor was born on Ebay. They were cheap. Now I would get vinyl letters, or you could just print a big font you like on the computer and use that as a stencil. As you can see in the "before" picture, they blend right in to the wall.






And Voila! Your custom wall monogram is finished. This was SO EASY! Beginning to end probably about an hour. Remember I was letting Connor help though. We also painted an accent wall in his room this same blue. I'll post about that tomorrow. Let me know if you decide to give this a try. I would love to see how they turned out!

**Update** I am linking up with Kimba for ASPTL's weekly DIY Thursday. follow the link below if you want to go visit some crazy talented DIY'ers!

That looks so great and very professional! When I saw the thumbnail pic I thought you'd had someone come in and do it. I'm also very impressed you got it all done in an hour with little helping hands by your side!
