I picked up this utensil caddy (I think it was?) at a garage sale this weekend for 50 cents and quickly turned it into a pen pal center with notecards, envelopes, and stamps.
I painted it with a bit of leftover grey paint. Next I printed out the word "write." in a large point font and cut it out. I flipped it over and traced the word with a pencil so it was in reverse. I did a messy job, but it worked.
When I lifted that off, the word was transferred, easy peasy. I painted it with a black craft paint and a not-very-good brush, hence the still messy look of it. (I'd recommend you take the extra two minutes to pick out the right brush). Funny how many times a day I get the opportunity to practice patience and how few times I actually do. It's good to have things to improve I suppose. ;)
