Ain't Nuthin' But A "g." Thang!

So I got another fun little decoration DIY project that only costs .55!!  That's right!  Here is what we are creating:

Cute, huh??  Well it was really simple.  I have been looking for a big "G" for our room obviously to symbolize our last name, Graham.  I just really like the way it looks in a bedroom.  I want to hang this in our bedroom above our bed/head board.

So this is what you need:
  1. Color card stock (any color of your liking) - .55 from Hobby Lobby
  2. A frame - FREE (already owned, but read below for the price if you want one)
  3. Scissors
  4. A computer! :)
I found this "g" from Google. I copied and pasted it into a Word document and adjusted it to my liking.  I then printed it out on the card stock and then traced the paper that comes in the frame onto the card stock, then cut it out.

Then its nothing then putting it into your frame!

By the way: These frames are from Ikea and this one in particular is a 5x7 for $4.99 a piece!  Yeaaaa buddy!!  I have a ton of these!  Perfect for hanging and displaying! ;)

This is the final product: 

I plan on putting this frame in this:

This is also from Ikea!  These are $4.99 as well.  They are 4 pieces of wood that you screw together and they are called "Fabric Stretchers".  You usually stretch fabric over it and display it as art (which I've done before as well).  Well you can also use it as a molding type of display.  Which I also love to do!  It just gives the piece of art you want to display a little something else. :)

I painted it a nice gray color and I am waiting for it to dry as I type.  Once I hang it up, I will post a picture of the whole finished product above our bed.  Yay!

Thanks again for reading another post on Re-Stylin'.

P.S. ALMOST done with the office.  Everything is in place and painted.  Just hanging up the FREE shelves.  Tell you more later. :)


  1. Love it! I think I'll have to try this one soon! I'd love to get a nice fancy "C" in our rec/craft room. Keep it up! Give Liam kisses for me!

  2. Thanks, Kayla! I will definitely give him a kiss from his favorite sitter! :)

  3. Thanks, Lisa! I wanted to do something different :)
