Letter Wall


I have finally finished my letter wall.  I had a vast blank space of wall in my living room.  I was weary on buying any large piece and then not liking it.  So I decided to do a letter wall with several (and I do mean several) smaller pieces.  I have been working on this for a quite a while and you can see some of my work here, here, and here.  I finally gathered all of my Cs, laid them on the floor, and got to arranging.  After about an hour of playing with the arrangement, I was happy and ready to start nailing to the wall.  I started on the top at the center and worked my way out.




My husband came home from a road trip and found the wall finished.  He was impressed with the number of Cs and the layout.  His only question was the price.  After doing a little mental math, I guesstimate the entire wall cost $30.00.  I was able to use several Cs multiple times (tracing, painting, mounting).  I was also able to use frames separately, the glass for one and the frame for another.  What do you think?

If you like what you see become a follower.  I will do the same.


Have a sweet day!

  1. I've not seen a letter wall with just the 1 re-accruing letter, but it really works! Looks great and must be a great conversation starter!

  6. I love this. Jen at Craftomaniac uses a lot of letters in her decor and has inspired me to add some to my house, but you definitely get the prize for the most in one place - and you look great doing it!! This is such a fun idea.
