Hello my sweet friends! I am so excited that you are here. I have ONE MORE engineer Christmas vacation project to share with you, and today’s the day! This one involves wood and a wall also, but it’s not faux shiplap; it’s a lot more modern, and a little more rustic, and it’s typography wall art, so there’s that.
This typography wall art installation is a project that I’ve had dreamed up in my head for quite awhile. Since it wasn’t a quick and easy project, the spark had to burn in my brain for a bit while I waited for an engineer vacay. Whew, that was rough.
Are you ready to see it??
You might remember that Santa brought me those 18 inch letters LAST Christmas. I decided that I wanted stained wood behind them, but neither of us was sold on covering this very large wall, so we opted for a large piece of “wood art.” This is tongue and groove wall paneling cut in to random lengths, and nailed to the wall. The letters are mounted on top.
Have you guessed which room this monstrosity is in yet?
If you guessed our bonus room/teen hang-out space, then you’re right!
This space made its debut with our Christmas Home Tour for 2015, and it’s still in the middle (or maybe the beginning) of a rustic modern farmhouse restyle. Taking down Christmas removed a lot of the color and fun, so I’m working on that.
Remember, there’s still a bed hiding behind the sectional, for when the college boy is home. And a naked lamp for texture, or something like that. ;)
He can almost play foosball with his toes while he lays in bed.
OR, he can gaze up at our handiwork and remember where he belongs. #perfect
Thank you SO MUCH for visiting! Have a great day!
