Peel-n-Stick Letters and Numbers

This post has E-A-S-Y written all over it. Well, not exactly. It actually has a *C* and an *A* and the letters B-O-X and a number of numbers written all over it, but you will see what I mean about the easy part the further you read.

I came across these cool black vinyl letters and numbers in varying sizes at a closeout store recently. And at a price of only $1.69 a pack, how could I go wrong?

These slick beauties do a lovely job reminding me when a box is a box...

...and add numerical flair to my otherwise plain white vintage doorknob.

But what I appreciate most is their Grade A performance on my ironstone.


So all that is needed to update an array of vintage collectibles, is a nice dose of alpha-numeric peel-n-stick stickies! How easy is that!




I guarantee, if you decide to attempt this project, you won't be stuck on it for long. Please come back and share your results with us!

  2. This is easy as A - B - C! Sorry, I couldn't resist!! I love anything with letters and numbers so this is a perfect little project for me. My favorite is the doorknob.

  3. Very clever...I've been painting letters - monograms - and that can be a time consuming and sometimes messy process. This is very crisp and neat...and changeable. Thanks for the tip.

  5. Thank you so much for passing that simple idea on. I have wooden letters all over, now I can put them on my plates without painting them. I love all the pictures.

  15. They are available at Michael's but they are NOT 1.69. More like $8.00! GREAT BUY! They do come in white, gold and black and various sizes and fonts, though. So if you want to splurge a little they are great to use for lots of things. You can put them on a painted surface and they will peal off and leave no residue. I used them a LOT at Christmas to put cute sayings on the walls.

  16. Simple you say, elegant I'd say. What awesome results you've obtained with a creative idea. The black letters just really pop amongst the white and really add alot to the overall look of the cabinet. Love it! I'll be searching now.
