Turning Child’s Play into Home Decor

 Isn't it amazing what you can do with paint! My daughter and I came up with a great way to transform those child’s alphabet magnets into adorable decorations for the refrigerator in her apartment. But it didn't stop there…

We also made cute pink and sliver magnets as a gift for one of her sorority sisters. She gave it to her with a magnetized dry erase board. I can imagine how cute it will be hanging in her dorm room!

We purchased these letters at Walmart for $1.00 a package.

Then we laid them out to paint. Of course, we had to have a little fun with them first! 

We found out real fast that Krylon paint worked best. Some of the other brands of spray paint just beaded up on them.

After they dry, we hand painted some with polka dots

and some with stripes

We decided to leave plain. I love this color blue!
