Did you guys happen to notice a friendly new addition in the background of Monday’s post?
You might remember all the way back in February when I painted the banister black and went over a few ideas for art to hang on that wall. Nothing felt quite right, so I just decided to wait it out until the perfect inspiration struck.
I was browsing through some of my favorite pins on Pinterest one day and this pin stopped me in my tracks – I loved the idea of spelling out a word on the wall using copper pipe connections. Then, I remembered this DIY sconce project from Mandi at Vintage Revivals, where she used wooden dowels painted black instead of copper pipe, and it all fell into place.
I love the contrast between the black and copper, and using wood dowels instead of copper helped keep this project very affordable!
While not exactly a ground-breaking word to spell out on the wall, “Hello” felt perfect for my little entry area, which isn’t all that defined from the rest of the living room. Plus, it includes only letters that can be spelled using 90 degree angles!
Do you want the full how-to?
Well, I have some exciting news for you! I recently began writing for eHow as a contributor, and this is the first project I did for them!
