a few weeks ago i was picking up a little gift at anthropologie and i came across these metal letters.
i instantly fell in love, as i have had a slight obsession with a&m ever since marcus got that engraved in my engagement ring.
i was so close to buying them, but i kept feeling like i could probably make something similar for less than $18 each, so i intagrammed this picture and a few people messaged me that similar cardboard and wooden letters were for sell at JoAnns or Michaels, you nice people even told me about apps that provide amazing coupons. <3 you!
So i drove immediately down to JoAnns with the app downloading as i ventured, found some very similar looking cardboard letters, used my newly acquired 40% off coupon, and for less than $5 i had what i needed!
I happen to already have both gold and silver spray paint at my house, so i tried both out.
the gold was too matte, so i went with silver.
They're not an exact match (but could easily be with some faux distress painting), but i really like them and for $5 vs. $40, i'm very proud of myself.
now i just want to find an "&"...any suggestions?
