The doors to my daughters' rooms are right next to each other. And when I say "right next to each other" I mean RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER!
So... after we moved in, I was worried that my older daughter (who was just under 2 years old at the time) would have trouble remembering which door was hers. And I didn't want to risk her going into the 6 month old's room and wake her up.
Let sleeping babies lie!!!
So I thought it may be helpful for her to have her initial on her door so she knew which one was her room. And since I was doing one for SweetPea, I knew I might as well do one for Boogey too.
I headed out to Michaels and bought some basic white letters -- they couldn't have been more than a buck or two each. Then I painted them a nice cheery yellow and added some detail around the edges with a black sharpie.
While I was at Michaels I had also picked up a few of their pre-painted, mini, wood decorative pieces so I hot glued them onto the painted letter in locations that wouldn't interfere with being able tell what the letters were. I added a little bit of black detail to a couple of the decorative pieces just to tie them all into each other a little better.
I have to say I was actually a little surprised at how great they turned out! :)
The letters already had a pre-drilled hole in the back so I just put a small nail into the door and hung them up. But... we soon realized that they banged (is that a word??) against the door every time you breathed on them. So I attached some velcro to the bottom of the letters with the other side to the door -- VOILA!! No more banging!
I figure as the girls grow and their tastes change, we can do new letters in new colors with different decorative pieces.
What do you think?? I am quite pleased with them! :)
