A sneak peek!

One of the things on our project list for the summer is to finish the boys room redo.
Earlier this year, they informed me that they were ready for a grown-up room.
They insisted on replacing the very cute nautical theme that I had going on since the oldest was born...
with a more current sports theme.

So for a preview I thought I would show you something I made. Gasp! I really did!
Remember my WACI files.
Alissa at 33 Shades of Green had a fabulous tutorial for easy decorative letters....and WaaaLaaa!
Looky what I made!

Jonathan's name is much too long we just went with his initials! And he couldn't decide which sports he wanted on his we did half and half.
It only took me about 30 minutes to complete this project....and they look much better in person.

So there's a little peek into the progress of the boys grown-up room.
Before and after posts are soon to follow. Hopefully anyway.
Have a great Monday!


  1. wow!! those are great!!! can't wait to see the rest of the room!!!my nephews would love this...i think i need to check out the tutorial.

  2. Very cute Jen! I've seen the girly letters done...but I never thought (or seen) the sports ones before! I guess the possibilities are endless with all the cool scrapbook paper out there! Before and afers are my favorite...can't wait to see the boys room!
    Have a great day!

  3. What an awesome it scrapbook paper modge-pogded over the wooden letter? Both of my boys have a 'sports' themed room, more little boy than big boy so we are in the thinking process of a redo on both of them! they turned out great!
