Have you caught the letterboard craze yet? This is one trend I adore; there’s something appealing about their simplicity and vintage style. The use of negative space, the modernized vintage look– after eyeing them up for a few years I finally clicked ‘buy’ and two days later this beauty arrived on my doorstep. Initially I thought it wouldn’t get used much, but it’s become an object of delight in our home.
And by delight, I mean there’s nothing like coming around the corner to see your kids have written BUTT BUTT BUTT BUTT CAT BUTT on the sign to make you giggle. And then panic.
Especially when guests are about to arrive in a few minutes. ::cue the frantic re-writing::
We’re in love with it. The kids dream up what to write in between their BUTT mantras, and we’ve used everything from literary quotes to inside family jokes.
Needless to say, it’s a keeper.
I purchased my 16X20 gray letterboard from Shelf Start because the price was reasonable and the seller rating high. My piece is fantastic, I’m very happy with it and the shipping was super speedy! However there’s lots of shops who sell similar items on Etsy including Letterfolk, who have the most gorgeous giant letterboards with 2″ letters that I’m yearning. Letterfolk’s letterboards are more of an artisan quality so the price is higher but worth it if you’re looking for a quality product. They also sell various styles on Amazon, I can’t attest to the quality but most have high reviews.
They also come in a small square that’s perfect for short quotes or photos and in gray, black or white background. I liked how the gray was different than the standard black velvet and went with that style.
If you get a letterboard, you’ll never be short ideas of what to write! Here’s a few categories to explore when dreaming up what to say:
- humorous quotes
- first day of school signs
- birthday signs
- song lyrics
- bible verses
- literary quotes
- seasonal poems or sayings
- quotes from your kids
