The Letter "M"

I found some letters in the clearance section at Walmart a couple of weeks ago. There weren't a whole lot left to choose from, BUT they did have an "M"!  It was destiny, I had to buy it for Madison.  Then, I had to decide what to do with it....paint it, decorate it, Mod Podge it, YEAH! I had a piece of scrapbook paper that mimicked the black and white tile in Madison's bathroom. So, I followed these simple steps!
1. Trace the M on the back of the scrapbook paper.
2. Cut out the paper.
3. Lay the cut-out on top of the letter. Trim where it is necessary.
4. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge (I have glossy) on the top of the letter using a sponge brush.
5. Lay the paper cut-out on top of the moist Mod Podge.
6. Smooth out any bubbles.
7. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge with the sponge brush.
8. Allow to dry 15-20 minutes.
9. Paint another thin layer of Mod Podge.  Allow to dry.
10. Find a special spot for it!

I LOVE IT! I can't wait to make more!

I just thought I would throw in some additional pics of her bathroom. I love her curtain and her shower curtain!
