Letter Wall

Realizing that this is not a new idea and {Design Sponge} and {Ohdeedoh} home tours feature these sorts of things every 15 seconds, I've thought that it would be really cool to collect letter H's and put them up on our wall like this:

So, I went and did it. I still want to add more, of course, but this is a start. Pretty cheery, eh?


The lower case H on the wall is from a reflective high way sign (I bought it on {ebay}) so it sometimes doubles as a disco ball at parties and such (not really, but that's a good idea). I've had my eye on {this H} from Anthropologie for a long time now, but I'd settle for {the smaller one}. I'm going to have fun collecting, I think.

p.s. shouldn't everyone have a portrait of Napoleon Dynamite on display in their home?

I love letters. I have a collection of A's myself and have them on a shelf at work.

I really don't need more things to collect, but I always seem to find new things to collect.

Very cheery, I really like the way they look! Keep adding. I love the reflective one.
And Napoleon of course.

you could totally make that letter H that you want from anthropolgie. i'm not exactly sure how it would work, since i've never done it...but go to Roberts or Michaels -- get your letter H and try 1 of 2 things. get the right kind of spray paint or try silver leafing it. i think it would be less expensive than $98 at least. it may be worth the try. who knows.

I like the Hs and I like the idea of grouping. But I have to admit, the gathered and grouped "K" collection really calls to me.
