I am liking the use of letters, IE: SEA on a photo wall, on a shelf, stencilled on walls and/or pillows, etc. It's an easy enough up-date. I can't find it but I saw a gallery wall that had painted letters, NY, among pictures. I can't remember where "she" was living but she was from New York, and the pictures were of favorite places and people in New York. I thought it was a wonderful idea and decided to do something similar. I decided on the letters: NYC and KSC... they are the same number of letters and I am obsessed with the grounds of Kennedy Space Center and it's Wildlife Refuge.
Here's my wall:
|some photos I'm thinking of using|
I am painting the letters. I stained them, but they match the wall too closely, so I am painting over with white and then I will sand some edges. Easy enough. One side I will put some NY beach pictures and on the other Florida beach pictures...and the shuttle fly over Patrick's AFB (good-bye) and Statute of Liberty (hello).

|stained, now painting white|
I want to give a white coat of paint over the brown wood frame and 2 black shelves for under the picture.
