Painted ABC Blocks

Good evening!  It's Monday and we are looking forward to spending a few days up at my parents' camp for the long fourth of July weekend.  I'm looking forward to putting up my feet and enjoying the sun and relaxing!  It's one of my favorite places to be and it's looking like it's my son's favorite place to go as well:)

I found these ABC blocks awhile back at a garage sale.  Simple and cute...right?  My son is four and really has outgrown these small blocks so I thought why not try and even make them cuter?


So, I went to work and gave them a coat of one my fave colors right now....a light aqua color.  After they dried I rubbed a bit of black paint onto the blocks.  I really do love them after their make-over......They would be cute on a shelf with a word like..."LOVE" spelled out.  They are in my shop as we speak....maybe someone will love them as much as I do.




I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend and enjoy all the festivities that go along with it!
Thanks for reading!
