I have loved seeing all the "EAT" commands?! going up in kitchens all over blogland.
I wanted my own EAT...but wanted metal letters.
I was struggling to find them...so...I made my own.
I bought these letters at Hobby Lobby, along with some silver leafing.
(I was hoping by silver leafing the letters they would have a bit more dimension then if I just spray painted them).
I did spray paint the backs with some leftover silver spray paint.
(probably not necessary...but whatever)
Then I used some generic spray adhesive and put a coat on the top and sides of each letter.
I laid a piece of the silver leafing on and gently rubbed it on.
I continued till they were all covered.
I let them sit for about an hour (so they were completely dry) and then I wiped them again so any excess silver leafing would flake off.
I hung them using the 3m velcro sticky tabs.
I like how they turned out...the font isn't my favorite, but I don't hate it:)
In the pictures they kinda look like I spray painted them, but in real life they have a lot of dimension:)
I'm linkin' to these parties.
