Typewriter Art

I saw this little beauty (vintage key art on the wall) on the
Pottery Barn website and longed for it...

But paying almost $400 for it was out of the question.
So, what's a girl to do?
Look for a way to make it herself!

I started looking back at some of the blog archives of the blogs
I already followed.  When I found the tutorial to make my own on
Susie Harris's blog I was ecstatic!
I knew I liked her ;)

So, I just followed Susie's simple step-by-step tutorial here and...


I switched up the type of font used because I
wanted more of a typewriter style.
You can do whatever font tickles your fancy!

I hung mine on the wall in my bedroom above my desk...

Susie also posted a reverse of the colors for
this project which you can see here.

It's fun to see how a plain piece of 2' x 2' wood from Lowe's
can turn into a beautiful homemade statement in your home.

I hope everyone is inspired to make a homemade statement in
their home, whether its this project or another :)


  1. Ooooh - I've been eyeing that project, so it's good to see that someone else did it successfully! Great job!

  2. Thanks Katy! You should definitely give it a try!


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I always love hearing from my readers!
