DIY Soapstone Letters
Happy day friends!
I was up bright & early this morning as my little one is giving up naps & you know what that means…
to bed early & up early:).
But…I am NOT complaining as I LOVE the morning time especially in the summer.
It is often those quiet moments in the AM when I am the most creative.
How about you, when are you most creative?
It was last week sometime in the wee hours of the morning that I decided to try this…….
I thought I would use these letters to dress a wall with THIS art project in my boys “coastal” inspired bathroom.
It has lots of grays, natural aged woods, soft beachy blues, whites & creams,
so I thought what the hay, the color & texture might be nice,
so I tried it
Sometimes these ideas are worth experimenting with and after all it is just paint, right?
I began by rolling each letter with Benjamin Moore Chalkboard Paint(my favorite),
after each letter was dry, I took my chalk on it’s side & rubbed away,
then took a cloth & wiped it off gently, hitting some areas more than others.
that is it:).

They look beautiful! The color and texture of the letters are perfect!
Love these!! That is so amazing you got that texture from paint and chalk!!
So cute! I love the texture.
Love it, Jen! Just out of curiosity, what are the letters made of? And I am looking forward to my one-year-old (who is my early riser) getting a little older… he’s in the climbing stage right now, and no paints are safe when he’s awake! I’m sure you understand. 😉

This is very cute, but did you spray anything on the finished letters?
No I didn’t. Unless they get wet they are ok:). Have a great weekend, jen
