As part of the One Room Challenge, a challenge where 20 bloggers makeover a room in 6 weeks, I created a piece of art for the games room I am working on. You can follow my progress here.
Early in the fall I took a trip to a local vintage home decor shop that opened in Abbotsford called Spruce Collective. I have a bit of an obsession with typography and anything font related, a bit of a font nerd. My family rolls their eyes every time another letter or number finds it's way into our home.
I also can't resist vintage gas station sign letters. I have a few kicking around the house, so when I stumbled across another treasure trove at Spruce Collective I couldn't resist buying a few. The letters F- U-N called my name. Having a bit of a frame collection (yes, I hoard frames along with fabric, I have a bit of a disease, called FFFH- fabric, frame and furniture hoardosis) at home, the project just fell into place.
What I used:
-Pexiglass letters (letterpress letters would work as well)
1. Cut the mat board to size using the glass pane as a guide with the x-acto knife.
2. Using the square rule to find the center, align the letters.
3. Apply glue dots to the back of the pexi-glass piece on the dark parts. Press onto mat board.
4. Assemble frame and voila, a FUN piece for the wall.
