Happy Monday! Another week has just started, and we are almost in a month of August.

Isn’t that crazy?

I am so excited as my ‘baby’ will start kindergarten in September. He is SO ready, and I have to admit that I am too. This past weekend we went to get his school supplies at Target. I thought it’s pretty early to get the supplies but when I was wandering around the other day, I had to realize that the shelves were getting pretty empty already. If you were visiting around here last week, you know that I am working on my boys room makeover now. Have you seen their kind of cool stenciled wall? The boys officially share a room now.

I think it’s a lot of fun for them.They love to get crazy together as they are best bodies.♥

My little three yrs old doesn’t LOVE books, unfortunately. He still won’t sit and listen to a full story from me as oppose to his older brother, who LOVES books. I am sure it is a second child thing, right?

 I wanted to create a little corner in the ‘NEW’ boys room that will be dedicated to reading and books only. We read English and Hungarian books as well so we have plenty of books.That’s when this RAINBOW ‘READ’ SIGN was born in my head.

Are you ready to see how easy it is to create this super easy project?

Things you will need to create  the ‘READ’ sign:

– Large letters (you can get these at your local craft store)

Wet Ones and Elmer’s School Glue Combo

– Paint chips

– Scissors

– Craft knife

First I cut my square paint chips in half. Then I used Elmer’s School glue to wet the whole surface of the letters.

Gluing can be pretty messy, right? I found this wonderful Wet Ones and Elmer’s combo while school supply shopping at Target at the Back to School section, this past weekend.

The perfect combo, don’t you think?

I am a messy crafter anyhow, but when it comes to working with glue, my hands usually get pretty sticky. These Wet Ones Wipes are lifesavers (or I should say camera savers). Seriously. I am a photographer, and my camera is always next to me, even while projecting. And to be quite honest, my camera sometimes feels my sticky hands.

No fun!

These wipes are just perfect for a quick cleanup!

Then I started applying the paint chips to the letters, creating a rainbow effect on each letter. Once I was done with using the chips, I cut out the letter shapes with my craft knife.

I wanted to display the books on shelves, with a face out, instead of keeping them thrown into bins. When kids see their book covers, they more likely to grab a book to read. I got these cute kitchen shelves from IKEA, and I painted them blue and orange to match the color scheme.

  1. Love the READ sign. Just looking at it, it looks painting. I would have never guessed you used paint chips. This room is so fun and colorful. I’m sure your boys just love it. Happy Monday and No, I can’t believe it’s almost August!!!

  2. I absolutely love this project! I am wondering…do the retailers allow you to take the chips? Do you ask permission or just kind of take them? Also, about how many did you use for the 4 letters. I was thinking about making this with the words “CREATE” and ” “THINK” so I’m just trying to figure this out!

    1. Amy, I went to Home Depot and they have tons of paint chis out there. I honestly did not ask. I am assuming it’s put out there for people to take home.And I am sure not everybody takes a whole lot like I did -LOL.I grabbed a whole line of each colors ( blue and orange). I used 7 different colors ( from the bottom to top on the letters), creating a rainbow effect on each letter.The words that you are thinking (CREATE and THNINK) are longer so I would most likely use 3 different colors- CE-1 color, RT -another color, EA-3rd color >just an idea:-)Let me know if you have any other questions! Have a fantastic Monday!
