Wall décor is one of the best ways to personalize your living spaces, and there are so many options: photos, frames, mirrors, art, tapestries… the possibilities are really only as endless as your imagination. One of the ways I’ve been trying to infuse our home with a sense of “us” is to create a wall gallery dedicated to the first initial of our last name. Problem is, our last name starts with a U and let me tell you, it’s not always the easiest letter to find. Here is the beginning of our little gallery of Us (pardon the pics – it was a gloomy day outside!):
The big industrial U is a recent thrifting find – and it very well may be a lower case N, but for all things sacred, we’re calling it a U, mmmkay? The rest I found at good ole Hobby Lobby over the past couple of years. I’m enamored now with the idea of repurposed, vintage letters so my hunt will go beyond the racks of my favorite store!
You’re with me on the vintage letter, yes? The others are great, but the vintage letter comes with a little story… and I think that makes it more special, sort of like my little family of Us.
I found some other folks who share my love of the Initial Gallery:
Well… are you inspired yet to start your own homage to your last name?
Hopefully your initial is a bit easier to find than mine… happy hunting! And if you find any Us… I’m your girl!
