Found these big old sign letters at the scrap yard the other day, & made husband drag them home for me.  They are big; 13 inches tall, and 3 inches deep; I thought they would be the perfect shelf sitters or wall hangers....  

I added black glitter to the T, placed in on the fireplace mantel with a few other little metal letters I had hanging around, & a few other industrial type accents.  Love it!!  Husband is not quite sure about the glitter, but he's coming around :)
