We have been working full force to get our house to the cozy home we long for.  This past weekend was extremely productive.  My hubby helped A LOT.  He needed a break from this traitorous heat and the yard work that still desperately needs to get done.

One of the many projects achieved was this amazingness!!!

Very Bold Here-I-Am letters E-A-T. 

Wanna know how we  Shawn did this…

{Here’s a tutorial}

We went to our local Home Depot on a hunt for the perfect sized pieces of wood.  And success was found where the lumber for fences were.  Even though the wood we used is originally meant for building a wood fence.  It was the perfect width and depth!



We figured out what the dimensions were going to be… Then my Hubby put his manly tools to some good use and cut away. {our letter are 20 in. wide and 22 in. tall}


We then secured the pieces of wood together with these brackets.  Also from HD.

The Letter “E” was simple and well as the letter “T”.  When we got to “A” well we didn’t have the tool we needed to figure out what angle to cut the boards to.  Thankfully I married a very smart man and He figured out it was 15 degrees.


We then secured just a simple picture frame holder from Target.  We orginially were going to paint the letter a burnt orange but since the wood is so pretty we thought we could keep it rustic and not so perfect with stain.  {stain that we already had}






Once the stain had dried we measured where we wanted to place the letters on the wall.  My Hubby placed the hanging brackets strategically positioned so when he hung the letter the same distance {2 inches} from each other they would be perfectly aligned. 

I can’t take much credit for this project.  My Husband did majority of the work.
