I tore the book pages into different size pieces. I like using pages that have different yellowish tints to them and that have different size print because they add interest. I coated sections of the letter with Mod Podge and layered the paper.
When I finished covering the letter with the paper, I let it dry. Then I got out my brown and black ink pads and rubbed them over the edges and some of the surface of the letter.
I covered the letter with a coat of Mod Podge to protect the paper, and my B was complete.
I love the aged look of the letter.
It's the perfect addition to the vignette I created on the table my dad and I made.
It's a small piece that adds a great personalized touch.
Little pieces like this letter are what make a room design fun and unique. It would be great to be able to afford pieces from great stores like Pottery Barn or Ballard Design. Those pieces just aren't in my budget, though, and, in reality, they are pieces lots of other people have. So don't be afraid or ashamed of creating inexpensive, unique pieces that make your home scream YOU.
