Crafty Weekend - Part Two

The three hooks by the shower are where the kids (are supposed to) hang their towels. I loved this idea but needed to make something that went with my navy blue theme. At Michael's (my local craft store), I picked up three wooden plaques and wooden letters that were the kids' initials. I also bought glossy Navy acrylic paint, white paint and a paint pen in white. I painted the wooden plaques navy blue. It took a couple coats since I didn't bother priming the bare wood. The wooden letters were also bare wood that I painted white. I added some lines with the paint pen, just for some interest. My daughter, Emma, has the same initial as her brother, Eli, so I just added some hearts on her plaque to make it a little more girly. I carefully drilled a hole in the back of the plaque (only about half way through) so that they would hang flush against the wall on a nail. Then I just hot glued the letters to the plaques. I think they turned out cute!
