Letter Wall Art
There's something about letters on the wall that I just love. It's modern. It's simple. It's good. It's totally a style that I've discovered over the years that works for me in my home. In fact, it seems it's a style I like on clothing as well. It started with this letter G. Beau and I were newly engaged, in college, and I worked at a craft store. I found this letter G on clearance and painted it black once we moved into our first house. Originally I kept it in the kitchen, but it's moved 3 times since and now lives in the entryway.
Then came the letter E for my firstborn, Ephram. E's quickly caught my eye wherever I went and I picked up most of these before he was even born. They still have a spot in his room and I have plans to add more.
EAT was next up in my growing collection. We had just moved to Texas and it was the perfect addition to our bare, builders-beige kitchen. I definitely copied this one from Pinterest and played around with black and silver paint to create a stainless steel look like the ones you can purchase at Anthro. They sat on this shelf for about 18 months before being packed up and finding a spot on our wall in our new kitchen. I took these photos around Christmas right before we moved.
Baby number 2 meant more letters. I went with these adorable lower case letters from Land of Nod. This time I wanted to go with a graduated dark to light tone of green, so I started with a green I loved and mixed in a little more white as I made my way through painting the letters. Right now they are located above Alwyn's crib.
And most recently, Home Sweet Home. Another Pinterest find that I pinned during our move and new right away I needed to find a place for it in our new home. I painted it the same color as the wall since I knew the shadows in this location would be plenty enough to show the letters off, but at the same time I wasn't looking for something to make a big statement here.
Modern. Simple. Clean. That's what I love about this style of wall decor.
& it's totally addicting. I'm sure more letters will be popping up on our walls in the future. In other news, check out tons of Project Life inspiration being featured over on Becky's blog today!
