Here's a simple piece of DIY decor for you – use words as accents for home decor to add interest to any room. (UPDATED)
In my guest room I want to create a warm cozy feeling, something that would reflect how we feel about our guests. There's nothing like feeling loved!
- The "L" – second hand store for $1.25
- The "E" – TJ Maxx for $5.00
- The "V" – from Hobby Lobby, $2.00 after using a 40% off coupon.
- The heart shaped pinecone wreath is an old piece of decor that's been floating around here for years.
Here it is all put together:
I want to paint one or more of the letters, but have not decided what colors to paint them. What do you think? I am going back and forth with color choices because I want to use some of the same letters to change it up at Christmas time to say NOEL.
Here is another word, "EAT" I used in my kitchen.
I plan to put up some photo canvases under the scrollwork I hung above the ledge. (UPDATE: I hung a pine cone wreath.)
The wood letters and scrollwork are from Hobby Lobby and were on sale for 50% off. The candle holder is from Good Will – $3.00.
I painted the letters red to match my other accents in my kitchen. Before and after pictures of my kitchen will be posted after I put up the pictures, the last thing I need to do to finish my kitchen. (DONE! See our kitchen here.).
When my son visits, he rearranges the letters – so far he's done TEA, ATE and ETA. I leave it alone till the next time he visits!
I also plan to use the word "create" in my
office craft room, but haven't found the letters in lower case that I want to use and that are affordable. (Found them!)
What words would you use?
