Introduction: Industrial Style Primary Letters
Upcycle gradeschool magnetic letters! These colorful plastic primary letters are easy to find at thrift stores, but, many of us already have a refrigerator full of them!
Although they're fun to play with and very educational, they're not very aesthetic and can make a kitchen look cluttered. Spray paint that works on plastic comes in many colors and special finishes......the possibilities are almost endless!
I used hammered silver spray paint to give my letters an industrial look.
These letters shouldn't be painted until everyone in your home is older than 3 and no longer putting things in their mouths
- Magnetic letters or numbers
- Spray paint for plastic
Step 1: Painting the Letters
Lay the letters out in rows on a piece of cardboard outside.
Wear proper eye protection and a mask
Spray paint the letters according to the instructions on the can.
Make sure to paint all visible bits of plastic.
There's no need to paint the backs.
Step 2: Leave Fun Notes!
The paint I used left a realistic metal texture!
Now you can display the letters on a refrigerator or any metal service that will work with magnets!
