Lettered Inspiration

I have had this idea in my head for a while now.  I really want to make a lettered sign in my office above my desk saying "Silver Lining".  One reason being that it's an inspirational saying, and the other obviously represents my business.  I originally thought that I would buy letters premade and hang them. 

I've had my eye on these from Urban Outfitters.

They come in different styles and I thought about painting them which would be fun for an eclectic feel.


The more I think about it, I think I'd rather try my hand at a DIY project of cutting the letters out of a sheet of wood.  Possibly using some sort of cursive script so they are all connected.  Here's a little inspiration:

I'm confident with a jig saw-but not so confident with my lettering skills so we'll see how this one turns out!

Which do you like better?  I am 99% sure I am leaning towards the DIY version mostly because it will be more economical.  


  1. I'd go with DIY! It will save some money and you could really get creative! I really like the "love" sign and its font. Can't wait to see what you decide!


  2. DIY! It's so much :]


  3. I agree with you and the other two ladies: DIY. Good luck!

  4. I say, if you can DIY it, then you go girl! Can't wait to see it when you're all done!
