I recently finished my corner cabinet that I found at the consignment shop. I will share more on that later in the week. I was in the middle of styling it when I came up with this easy little DIY typography project.
If you have been following me for a while, you know that I am a huge fan of The Fixer Upper on HGTV. I love when Joanna adds typography to her design. In one episode she added a large number 7, representing the number of children the couple have. In other episodes she adds a large initial of the family somewhere in her design. This past week it was the letter B.
I decided to make my design, on a smaller scale. I had all the material on hand, so this was a quick project.
DIY Typography Project
I bought the letter K from Michaels. It was left over from a previous project. The brass house number I picked up a few years ago in Maine when we were on vacation. I bought a glass jar full of different size letters and numbers from this shop we stumbled upon. The shop was a huge red barn that had so many things, they were spilling out into the parking lot and around the sides of the building. Good times!
You can see how I used some of the other numbers at the Island House here. I just love this idea. Check it out!
O.K. back to my DIY Topography Project…super simple. The brass number has some metal prongs on the back, I pushed it into the wood to leave an indent so I would know where to drill the small holes into the wooden letter. Next, I brushed on some stain leftover from my Home sign. While that was drying, I cleaned up my brass number a bit. Once everything was dry, I inserted the 5 into the K and that was it. I was finished! This little piece represents my family.
I hope you enjoyed this little DIY project.
Until Next Time,
