Letters on a wall

Here are a few pics of how I have used our last name "W" initial around our home. My newest one was a find for $5 at Ross last night. (oh, how I love Ross) I like the way it looks with my newly painted hutch (see other posts)

We moved out here with such short notice that had to rent. We are planning on buying a house next spring...so wait until you see all this with some wall color!

Here is a "W" in a photo grouping. This was found at home depot in the house letters section on clearance by my in laws. They knew I would figure out something to do with it. They know me so well.

Want to make it more personal? You can buy the cardboard letters at Michaels/Hobby Lobby and cover them with scrapbook paper. I had been considering doing this with a black and white damask pattern for my dining area, but this larger black letter will do for now.


  1. Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…

    Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents óbold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.

    Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and donít look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home theyíll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.

  2. My friend Angie does a lot of things w/ R (since her last name starts w/ R. Your W's look cool too...but I don't know if T is such a cool looking letter to do things w/...What do you think? Maybe you should make me one and then let me see what I think (hint...hint...)

  3. I love this. I'm thinking I could find a lot of K's out there.

  4. Really good ideas and tips for decorating and saving some serious cash. I love the wall display with the W and the photos.
