I am so freakin' pumped about this project! Seriously. Just thought I would warn you before jumping right into it. Me = overly excited.

Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about the project. As some of you know, I am working on a plate wall for my guest room. And one of the things I wanted to include was a typographic plate.

I found a plain white serving dish at Goodwill. I liked the size, heft, and subtle black rim. I liked that it was smooth right to the edges. It cost $2.

Using leftover stick-on vinyl phrases from the Dollarama (see this post and this post to learn more) I cut out individual letters of the alphabet and got sticking. Here's the end result:

Rad, right? AND SO EASY! I had to get creative with a few of the letters. The letter "P" is actually an upside down "d" in both instances.  "Q" "X" and "Z" I made with my mad creative cutting.

Of course, it's not food safe. But as a wall hanging? Not to toot my own horn TOO loudly, but... TOOOOOOOOOOOOT! I think it's pretty perfect.

Very cool. Do have to put a glaze on it once the letters are on?

Never mind. I guess if there were glazing involved, you'd have mentioned it in the post. Ha.

Actually, a glaze would be a good idea if you wanted to make this a permanent piece. The stick on vinyl letters are likely to curl eventually. But I decided not to glaze it because I like the idea of changing my mind in future.

But friends, if you DO want something more permanent, consider glazing or applying some sort of lacquer.
