Black acrylic paint, folk art pearl paint, cardboard letters and a paint brush
Paint the letters all black and let them dry for about 10 minutes. Then dip your brush into pearl paint use long stokes to paint over the black. The silver coat will give it the texture to look like a matte metal. Let that coat dry for another 10 minutes and paint over another second coat if you prefer. Let it dry completely and hang them wherever you want!
|I picked up these paper mache letter from Hobby Lobby for $ 2.47 a piece|
You can see the comparison here: letter "H" is the diy version and "K" is from Anthropologie. Pretty similar right?
You really can't mess this up just go with what you think looks good. You might not be able to tell in the photos but the finish is really awesome. You wouldn't guess they were paper mache.
Btw, we're getting closer to that big "Guest bedroom" reveal post. Hope you enjoy this tutorial and have a happy weekend ahead!
