hey, thanks you guys for the awesome comments!
They did take.. a few days
but it was well worth it! And i had plenty of time on my hands.
The letters i stenciled. I used some shelf paper (so it would be a lil sticky, but not so much that it would take paint off) and used my inkjet printer and printed righton the shelf paper. worked like a charm!
'nother update! I now have a desk that matches my dresser and "uglyone." Once i move into my house, i'll take a pic of my room as a whole so ya'll can see everything in one, big, spankstastic pic!
