Lettered Art Work

I do like an easy project and this is one!  Plus it's cheap!

I purchased 3 letters from Hobby Lobby.  They sell several types of large letters but I chose the ones that were on sale that day!  The letters are made of cardboard and are sold in the scrapbooking section.  Regularly, they are $1.98 each and I got them 50% off which was 99 cents each.

I used some blue craft paint and a little foam brush to paint the letters.

After painting, I sprayed them with a matte finish.

And there they are!  I used some E6000 and glued a bent paper clip to the back to use as a hanger.  As you can see this is a small narrow space and my "EAT" art works perfectly here.

I pulled the blue color from the valances and

the blue pillows on the breakfast bench!

It's a little different from my normal decor but I like it!  It brings in a little more color!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Can't help but love projects like this -- little cost but big impact! Great choice drawing out that lovely blue color from the valances and pillows. And I especially love that you made the hangers from paper clips and E6000!

  3. I love it Tammy! Sometimes it's good to step out of your usual "comfort decorating style". It adds freshness to the space!

  4. Those look great! Love the blue, it adds that pop of color in an otherwise unused space.

  5. I love the letters EAT in the kitchen and it's crazy how much some home stores want to charge for such letters...great job at doing it the crafty way! We'd love it if you'd share this at our link party - Home is Where the Heart is!

  6. I love your EAT sign. It looks so pretty with your white cabinets!! Thank you for sharing this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again on Monday. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  7. I love your EAT sign. I have a similar one in my kitchen. You can see it here:

    My family is heading to Fort Morgan, AL this coming week. I just love that area of our Great Country. I think I'm actually a Southern Girl trapped in the middle of the Middle West.

    I'm a new follower of your blog. I stumbled here from a linky party somewhere...and m not sure where now. Thanks for the good reads.


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments! I try to return the favor and visit each one of you! ~Blessings, Tammy~
