{playroom ABC's}

I found these fabulous ABC tiles on the clearance shelves at the Pottery Barn outlet, and I loved them as soon as I saw them. I knew I wanted to implement them somehow in the playroom, and I love how it turned out. This is SO simple--and instead of nails you could use clothespins.

  • 3/4 inch MDF, cut into the length and width you need (remember...your hardware store should do this for you!)
  • spray paint
  • 2 inch nails
  • air nail gun
  • Spray paint your cut wood--sand and distress as desired. I would use either a Ralph Lauren glaze, or a dark stain (I love Minwax Provincial).
  • Pound in your nails, or hot glue on the clothespins.
  • Using the air gun, nail the boards where you want them on your wall, making sure they are level.
  • Add your embellishments!

Wondering about the letters as well :) What size are they and what are they made of? We homeschool and I have a little guy in kindergarten this year. Would be a wonderful teaching aid!!! Thanks :)

I actually found them at the Pottery Barn Outlet a few years ago, for really cheap. They are made of tin. You could make your own, though--out of wood & vinyl, and they would be adorable!
