Ok, so before we go any further, let me assure you that I finally signed up for a photography class. I know, I know, I'm already an expert, but really...even I can improve. Seriously, I am the worst photographer, so please just squint your eyes and pretend like the pictures are awesome, mmmkay? Thanks. I knew I could count on you.
So about the letters...I used the chip decor letters from Hobby Lobby, which I love. They are $2.00 each, and I love the simple, clean lines. I used a metallic silver paint, then a teeny, tiny bit of dark stain, that I wiped on then right back off to give a little bit of a tarnished look. To get the letters to stand upright, I hot glued nickels to the bottom. I thought about using quarters, but seriously, what a waste of money! When I say cheap, I'm not messing around, people!

|There are the nickels. Seriously, I could have taken time to wipe off the excess glue.|
