I felt like I was writing an intro for Sesame Street with the title of this post, but the title says it all. I'm a proud Sires girl, so when I see the letter 'S' in the décor section of a store, it catches my eye.
Using letters in decorating has been a long-standing trend. I've used letters in my decorating recently, but I wanted to go BIGGER.
You'd be surprised, but it's kind of hard to find the letter 'S' among all of the other letters available. So when I've seen one at a good price, I've been purchasing them. I had a few on hand already, but picked up the mother load at Gordmans. I rarely shop there, but the deals were too good to pass up. Because I was able to get so many for such a low cost, I decided I was ready to start my larger scale 'S' wall in our living room.
I started by laying everything I had out on the floor. I arranged and rearranged everything a good 20 times.
So many times in fact, that my assistant and I needed a nap.
Once I had everything laid out just as I wanted, I took a photo with my phone for reference and eyeballed the placement on the wall. (I'm a really good eyeballer - if you aren't - you could use a tape measurer and painters' tape to mark out where you'd like everything to go!) Instead of nails, I used 3M Velcro strips to hang everything. I've really fallen in love with these little boogers because they don't damage your wall, which is good for someone like me who is always changing up our décor.
I was pretty pleased with how this wall came out. My love for the letter 'S' can live on in a very visual way now, which is what I've been waiting for! And this is just the start, I envision it spreading wider across the wall over time.
