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…….

DIY Soapsone Letters 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


LOVED it:).

Sometimes these ideas are worth experimenting with and after all it is just paint, right?

DIY Soapsone Letters using chalk

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:).

  1. They look beautiful! The color and texture of the letters are perfect!

  2. 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. 😉
