I love type! My favorite flea market purchase hands down is a giant vintage yellow ampersand Being an avid type lover means I must edit down how much is displayed around the house. So while this project might push me over the edge into obsession, it would be perfect for new homes, house warming gifts or nurseries for the rest of you.
This tutorial from Bookhou (who also created the fabulous DIY woven pendant lamp) was recently featured on Poppytalk. It is a bit time intensive, but the results are great. I've worked with plaster before and while it's a bit messy, it's a lot of fun. These letters were finished with a graphite powder to give them a metallic look, but the finishing options are endless.
