Monogrammed Pictures

October 13, 2009






My kids all share a bathroom and hence share two towel bars. They kept using each other's towels and it created confusion. I came up with this simple way to identify whose towel belongs where with a monogrammed picture  frame. I have a box in my closet full of picture frames. I grabbed two sets that matched and removed the glass fronts. (I put the glass back in the box - you never know when you might need them!) I went to Michaels and bought small wooden letters, one for each child's initial and the "M" for our last name. I took out my trusty black spray paint (I love to spray paint!) and sprayed each letter. I took some light blue card stock and placed it in the frame and then put the mat on top. I used my handy dandy hot glue gun (another tool that is a must for DIY) and glued the initial in the center. Finally the frames were hung up in the bathroom over the towel bar where each child hands up their towel. Now they never argue over whose towel belongs to who AND it has cut down on laundry! It is a win-win situation!
