No longer F-A-T

Heck of a post title right?!

Well, I’m not talking about me being fat…instead I’m referring to the faux metal letters we have going on in our kitchen.

 Remember the Anthro-inspired zinc letters from this post? Well, last time I was having a bit of trouble with the letters looking like they read “FAT” instead of “EAT.”

I used the temporary solution of a basket to give the letters a boost in height.

Fast forward a few months, and I finally have a permanent solution (things move slow around here!)

I had a bulletin board hanging in our kitchen that I made out of old wine corks. It served as a great catch-all for pictures, invitations, and knick-knacks. But, it was just too small for the corner.

I figured the silver letters would look much better in that space, and take up a nice long chunk of the wall.

All I needed was a few picture hanging strips…

…and a level.

I was good to go in 5 minutes flat!

I feel like it fits the space much better!

Best part is no one will ever, ever think it reads “FAT”again!

    @Manda Wolf I seriously did not even notice until my fiance said, “umm are you trying to tell me I’m FAT?” Hilarious!

    And yes, they’re much better (& more readable) in the new spot.

    Brittany, so amazing to hear from another Wausau gal!!! We lived there for about a year (2010-2011) and we loved it!

    I purchased the Wausau crate at the antique store in the middle of downtown Wausau…the one right by the Back When Cafe. They had a few in the basement, and I knew it would be something I would keep forever to remind us of our time there.

    Good luck finding one for yourself! I hope you do 🙂
