Hey Friends!

Before technology ruled the world, times were much simpler. Written word was used just about everywhere. One way was by a letter board. Restaurants and churches used these for menu boards, attendance numbers, as well as a multitude of other things.

I have been wanting a letter board for quite some time now, but the ones I had found online were so expensive! (Over $25 plus shipping—no thanks.) So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that Hobby Lobby was having a sale on their letter boards for 50% off!! (Thanks to a local Lexington blogger I follow on Instagram!) That’s right! I practically ran to my car and raced all the way down Nicholasville Road.

When I got there, I picked up the last one in the size and color I was wanting. I took it as a sign that it was meant to be. And it was only $14!! PTL

Obviously when you go to Hobby Lobby you can’t just get what you came to buy. It’s like Target, you get sucked in. I could literally spend years in Hobby Lobby and never get bored. And guess what? Like half of the store was half off!! Not really, but metal and wood decor items were (and what else do you really need, amirite?) I got two other items for 50% off as well and walked out of the store grinning from ear to ear. That is until I saw a Christmas tree. A CHRISTMAS TREE. DECORATED FOR FALL. IN JULY. WHAT. You can’t mix those two things!! It was an outrage let me tell you.

Back to my letter board. There are endless possibilities when it comes to decorating your letter board. You can change it up as often as you’d like and you can display it in a variety of places. I just really enjoy the simplicity of it all and the fact that it doesn’t require me to have good handwriting. This requires zero talent to decorate. You just put the tabs into the grooves on the board and VOILA!

This is what the letters look like when you first open it. Gently break off the letter and place it on your board!

Here are some examples of different ways you can style your letter board:

I hope you enjoyed this post! I know I did! I can’t wait to play around with my board again!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
