In my last post I showed you my letter F that appears to be metal, but it’s only a wooden letter purchased from Michaels. My inspirations? Pottery Barn’s $30 Metal Letters….here’s a photo of what that looks like.
Of course these are absolutely stunning and perfect, but not all of us have that kind of budget to drop on one letter. So I gave it a DIY try.
Leter: From Michael under $5
Flat black spray paint (I had in the garage from previous projects)
Rust technique: Sophisticated Finishes Rust Antiquing set $15 (I already had this from a project I had done a year ago, it’s worth it if you’re going to a use a couple times…I think I got my money’s worth)
I purchased this set from Michaels as well. It’s so easy to use and it quickly transforms anything to look rusty and like an antique piece.
