Faux wood button found at JoAnn. In the Vintage Home Decor section (currently 50% off). At my store it was in the back, sandwiched between the basket isle and the frame isle and just in front of all the smelly candles. About $10 (after discount). Thanks Colleen for the heads up!
I found the fun white letters at JoAnn too. It's a bit intimidating to just randomly start picking letters, not knowing precisely how they will all look once laid out, so I started with these just because they looked pretty in that font. I'm sure I'll end up doing some returning at some point (shhh...don't tell David, he hates it when I buy things knowing I might need to return them), but I am trying to keep that to a minimum. I think the button will end up being painted black unless I can make it look like it's wood. But I'm not too sure I have those kind of skills.
I'm excited to see how this all unfolds. And looks like I'm not the only one either. Jenn is revamping her main floor and an alphabet wall will be making an appearance soon too. Speaking of Jenn, I can't wait to share with you the adorable little doll I made for her newest edition. I'm waiting until she sees him in person first though (probably Monday).
