Have you ever seen the show Cougar Town starring Courtney Cox? Its pretty decent. I mean...weird at times, but still okay.
Anyway, in Courtney's kitchen, she has the letters E-A-T on the wall. The letters are from Anthropoligie, and I actually saw these a year or so ago and almost bought them to spell out my niece's name in her room.
I thought it was a great idea for the kitchen, but the letters cost $14.00 a piece. Hmmm...I figured I could figure out a way to do them cheaper. So, here's what I came up with.
I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased the necessary letters for about $3.50. (They were on sale half off.)
Next, I went to the fabric store and bought scrap pieces for $5.00.
I covered the letters with the cloth and secured them with hot glue. I have to say, I had to get a little creative with the different angles and cut outs. If you look up close, there are definite imperfections. But, they are hanging high on a wall so no one can really tell.
I even had a little help. Or....Juliet came and sat down on top of my fabric right in the middle of the craft table.
Here is the end product. I have Fiestaware dishes, and the letters coordinate with my dishes. They also coordinate with a Mexican dish I have hanging on another wall.
