10 DIYs of Summer: Part 1

A brand new renovation has just been completed at Casa Ribena. I've gone classic and affordable with the permanent fittings, and now what we need are the unique personal touches. Stay tuned for my 10 DIYs of summer - maybe you can be inspired to do something for your own space! Here's part 1...
 ..........................................................................................................
Our little ensuite has now been built, and, as a tiny all-white space - a splash of colour is just what it needs.

I found this large metal ampersand on sale at Typo at DFO for only $20, but I hated the colour. About to walk away, I thought "what if I painted it?"...

I chose gloss Dulux "High Alert" for instant sunshine...
 
Other ideas you could do with letters and typography:
  • Paint it with chalkboard
  • Decoupage some fabulous paper to the front of it
  • Mix it up with a cluster of different sized letters and fonts
  • Add a 3 dimensional word to the top of a huge canvas as a bedhead
Have you used typography in your decor?
