Although I haven't been posting, I have been busy.  For some reason incubating a new human life inside one's own body is hard work!

Since everyone I know who has seen a photo of our nursery alphabet wall think's it's pretty darn cool and they also can't belive I made it, I thought I'd do a super quick post on it.

Of course, there are about a milllion alphabet walls for inspiration out there & many of them are pinned to my Nursery board on Pinterest, so I'm not going to go into posting more here.

Here's how it turned out:

The wall is "Crayola Gray" by Dutch Boy, which we had mixed in their Zero VOC Paint (AWESOME!) and the colors  really pop off of the neautral background.

Here's a run down of where the letters came from & what I did to them:

B-Hobby Lobby- painted & covered with fabric
C- Jo-Ann- painted
D-Michael’s -(started as a P)- painted and covered with fabric
