ABC's ... Your Way!

ABC's ...MY WAY!

.

Ok, so... I'm a sucker for the novelty of alphabet magnets!

It adds personality to your kitchen and I like leaving

random cool messages to myself daily.  But even though colorful ABC's is beautiful, I wanted to make the alphabet my way. 

.

For those who don't know me, I have a nutty obsession with the marriage of pink and orange.  I'm not sure where it was conceived.  Possibly when I purchased a poster for one of  my once favorite singers, Bjork.

So I began buying items that embodied this combination. 

.

Step One: Spread all the letters out and separate them by color and take two sets of letters out of your choice and put them aside. (Obviously, mine were pink and orange) 

.

Step Two: Place all other letters on a piece of cardboard or hard surface.  I used a box top from staples printer paper.   (note: In case you noticed, I left the pink "E" in for the message: Time 2 spray... and then oops... I left it in, oh well) 

.

Step Three:  Using spray paint, (I used Rustoleum spray paint for plastic) spray a coat at a time every 20-30 mins.  Don't try to do it all at once.  It'll make tons of runs in the paint.

.

.

Step Four: Make sure you pay close attention to the sides and insides of each letter.

.

.

Wait until the next day for the last coat to dry just to be on the safe side. 

.

.

OMG... Now you have your very own

customized alphabet to accessorize your fridge!

.

Project Cost:

Magnet letters: $1.00 each {X2} = $2.00 {Dollar Store}

White Spray paint: $2.00 Dollar General}


Total: $4.00!
