3-D Letter Sign

A while back I pinned THIS picture (shown below).  I loved the concept of the letters matching the wall, but still being visible.  I knew I wanted to do something similiar somewhere.


I decided to make a "Be Kind" sign for our mudroom.  It's something I've been working on with the boys and I thought it'd be a great reminder when we come and go.  (No, they don't read, but they watched me make the sign and they both know what it says :)

He's what I came up with.


I purchased the letters at Hobby Lobby.  The little ones were $1.50 and the big were $3.50, but they were all 50% off.  So, I spent $6.50 for all of them.  I also got the frame there at 50% off, so it was $15.


I painted the letters with some extra paint I had for the room.  I used the same Command strips I used HERE to hang the letters.  The letters are so lightweight that I only used one medium sized strip on the big letters and one small one on the little letters.  The strips make it so easy to hang stuff.  I wish I had a lifetime supply of them.


So here's how it looks as you enter from the garage.  Remember the organization station?


And then you enter the kitchen....with counters that need to be cleared.


I thought about centering the letters, but then I liked the right justification look better.


Have you done any tone on tone wall stuff before?  I'm really digging it.


Thanks for stopping by.


- Do any of you have a love affair with the Method products at Target?  I absolutely adore them.  The are "green" and they smell good enough to eat.  Yes, I have an obsession...but hey, anything that makes me want to clean more is good, right?

- Do you have a Ninjago fan?  Christie just did an awesome party for her son with a Ninjago theme HERE.  Great ideas.

  1. I also love the Method products. Last Christmas I purchased the Basil hand soup and it designed to help degrease dirty hands. It is wonderful at the kitchen sink. I love the smell and how it really cleans my hands.

  3. Speaking of Method products, there is a $1 off coupon at target.com in their coupon section...it's not much but if you're planning on buying some, might as well take advantage of another $1 off, right!

    1. Oh, man, Tiffany. I'll be 40 in January, but I started a little late and I'm in the thick of Ninjago (Lego) right now. And I just had my third boy, so I'm going to be 50 and in the thick of Ninjago (or whatever they're promoting then). Sigh.

  6. super cute sign! Love the sentiment & the way you hung it :) I also heart Method products. Unfortunately (or fortunately for my wallet) I live 75 miles from the nearest Target (boo!). So next time I go, I need to stock up :)

  8. Totally awesome! I've never even thought to do something like that! You've got me searching for wall space now :) As for method products? My husband thinks I'm nuts when I say I want to walk down the Target cleaning sections just for fun! Ha! Have a great Thursday :)

  9. I love Method too!! The shower cleaner is my favorite because I don't have to worry about who (or what animal) gets in the tub and then puts their little hands (or paws!) into their mouth. :) Have you checked out the designer series they have out right now?? I'm obsessed with the Ginger Pear. It makes me *want* to clean off the counters just to I can wipe them down :)

  10. Method cleaners have been my choice until I recently discovered they aren't as green as I think they could/should be. The bottles clearly state no eye contact and if ingested, call a physician. I like the products I use in my home to be safe for everyone. -Linda

  15. I actually pinned TWO times from this post. Thanks so much for your water cooler idea. I might have to steal it, but call it something else. :-) It was great to see the Ninjago party. I told her I found her via your blog. Great job. Love you.
