All That Glitters Is Gold (Gold Magnetic Letters)

Gold Magnetic Letters.

Scattered across the surface of the fridge.

Sharing instant messages and sweet nothings.

Welcome to Day 2 of my All That Glitters Is Gold series.

 

1-13-13n 004 Gold Letters @ CharmingZebra.comLast summer, I ran across this fun idea of glamming up the traditional alphabet fridge letters from Inspired By Charm.

I remember having fun playing with the alphabet on our fridge as a child, so it seemed perfect to make my own version of these gloriously gold magnetic letters.

I found two packs of the colorful alphabet in the dollar section at Wal-Mart.

I placed all the letters in a cardboard box and spray painted them with Rustoleum Metallic Gold.

Such an easy project, although there was one slight mishap…

…It was a bit breezy so I wedged the box between a few bricks for stability while the paint was drying.  Well, the wind picked up to a Mary Poppins level, tossing the box through the air, scattering gold letters across the yard.

No biggie.  I was just able to have my own private alphabet hunt.

The gilding of the letters turned out great.  And now we have a fun way to leave cryptic messages, chore reminders, diet encouragement (NO?) and sweet nothings on the fridge.

So what about you?  Have you crafted a grown-up version of a favorite childhood activity?
