Old Letters to Make a New Entry

I found a ton of old sign letters the other day; I couldnt resist adding a Welcome to the front entry.  I think it adds a nice contemporary touch, to contrast with all the funky metal stuff I have out there...

The letters are super lightweight; foamcore with a plastic top; so I just used that silly-putty-ish adhesive to stick them to the wall.  And, I couldnt stop there, I also added a create to the jewelry studio, a sleep to the bedroom, & a cat to the kichen :)  Too much fun!
