LOVE--ain't it grand? Or in this case grand, BIG, and rustic!
Remember my XO I made for Valentine's Day (SEE HERE)? At the same time I started to make a block letter LOVE. I got the L and O made and then, well, I suppose life happened or something and I never finished.
But with moving, I am finding all sorts of things and this was one of those. So I made a V and E and finished it up.
I used barnwood and rusted L brackets (in vinegar and salt) to help put the letters together. I initially assembled the letters with screws drilled in an an angle through the back. The L brackets helped secure them. These are 18 inches tall and sit well on the shelf, but could be hung with D rings.
I was inspired by Thistlewood Farm's Pallet letters that you can see HERE. And while I am a little late in completing these for Valentine's Day, they arr perfect for rustic summer weddings.
