DIY Letter Block Project

I have had my eye on this DIY project for a little while now. When window shopping at Room and Board, I found this lovely piece that retails around $200-$200....

I just so happened to be armed with 2 very important elements for this project.
1.) Letter Press Blocks ( used as table numbers from our wedding)
2.) A 40% off coupon at Michael's for frames.


The larger numbers were thrifted from the flea market for the wedding. The smaller numbers were found while in London shopping at the Portobello Market. I needed a few more "2"s and "0"s in order to spell out. 05.22.2010 (Wedding Date)

Now we have a pretty art piece (that will eventually live on a better wall- not loving it on that color paint and under that damn sconce) and it is a small reminder for the Hubs so he can't forget our anniversary- EVER!

I think the project is pretty self explanatory really, so not sure I really need to go into a step by step process....but let's just sy the most challenging part was deciding on the layout. I had to email them to some friends for help. I spent at least 2 hours arranging and re-arranging the numbers into different formations.

  3. "That damn sconce" is going to make it into my regular vernacular starting today.
