it is well with my soul DIY (4)

it is well with my soul DIY (2)

this simple diy project has brought me so much joy. it fills our guest room with a touch of gold and sense of peace and rest.

"When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
What ever my lot you have taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul"

- Horatio G. Spafford, 1873Horatio G. Spafford, 1873

i'm sure you crafty bunch won't need instructions for this project, but i'll list them here anyways! :) you could of course use the same technique for any phrase. let your imagination run free!


- wooden letters
- my favorite gold spray paint
- 3M mini command strips
- level, ruler and pencil (optional)

step 1: place the letters on a large piece of scrap paper (newspaper would work well). spray paint them making sure to get all the sides.

step 2: use a ruler, level and pencil to plot the letters on the wall. eyeball it if you wish!

step 3: place a small 3M strip on the back of each letter. place firmly on the wall and hold for 60 seconds (follow package instructions)

  • I’m feeling peaceful just looking at your pictures!

  • I just adore your style. It’s such a pretty and harmonious balance of nature rugged and soft and airy. Great project! I’ve always wondered how best to display quotes in decor.

  • Did you make the table that is pictured in these photos or did you buy it somewhere? I’ve been looking for something just like it! (simple wooden board & hairpin metal legs) Love the quote too!

  • Wow, you’ve been busy! I’ve been really loving all the DIY projects that you have shared!

  • so pretty!

  • That hymn is near and dear to my heart. I love the style of the lettering for that little DIY project. My husband and I are going to be homeowners soon so I am looking for little inexpensive ways to spruce up our future home! I always enjoy seeing pictures of your house. They’re so inspirational and beautiful.

  • I love this so much! I’m definitely going to do this in my new apartment. Love your style! :)

  • Where did you find this letters? I love the size and font!

    • hi natausha! they’re from michaels! (link in post)

  • Came across images of your guest room on Pinterest and 2 hours later my roommate and I found ourselves at Michaels recreating this sweet craft. Thank you for the inspiration. It’s a lovely addition to our space!

  • I love this project, Bonnie! Can’t wait to try it out in our home. Thanks for sharing!

  • Thank you for sharing. God bless you in your sweet nesting place.

  • I’m moving to a new, but smaller home. This is a favorite hymn that will bring peace to me and to my guests when they visit. Thank you so much. Guess I’ll be heading to Michael’s tomorrow. Did you use any particular gold spray paint? How many coats did you spray on? I want my project to look just like yours.

    • Hi Debbie, this is wonderful! I’ve linked to the spray paint I used in the post above. It’s my favorite!
