How to line up quick and easy wall lettering
Thank you all so much for the kind words about our downstairs! It is amazing to have that extra space back!
I wanted to share how to line up lettering on a wall like I did for my “I love you dearly” wall display in our family room reveal.
The trick behind it is to figure out your arrangement first and lay out your letters on the floor.
Okay, I know the patterned rug wasn’t the best choice, but hindsight is 20/20.
Then, make a level painter tape line and start with the two most center letters in the middle of the word in the center of your sentence.
This will ensure the proper spacing. I started with the last word and worked my way up. Centering all of the center letters first.
The back of the letters have a spot for nail holes, but I also wasn’t about to try and line up that many letters. I used double sided heavy duty adhesive.
And while thy are not totally perfect, I am totally okay with it! I just love how it turned out.
I adeer it.Sorry, I mean I adoe it. I mean you don’t have to stagger your letters or anything.
I know that’s awful, right?

Hi, I’m wondering what the wall color is in your downstairs? (on the DEER wall) It looks like a nice warm cream. I love your house, blog and your sweet spirit! Thank you.
HI Angie, it’s called early morning mist by Benjamin Moore. It’s a light ream with a slightly green/grey undertone.
