Rustic Tin Letters On Salvaged Wood from our Home

Getting a package in the mail is always exciting!
Especially when it's rustic tin letters hiding inside!!!

I got my "Y" "U" "M" on Monday from Custom Cut Decor and even though he graciously adds wire to the back of each letter, I ended up using tiny little nails to nail each letter in place on my wood.
Speaking of wood, I'm so happy this piece of salvaged wood has a story to tell!

See the chippy perfection of the old white paint - probably filled my lungs and brain with lead while I cut it down to size with the table saw, but I must not be too brain dead since I still spelled YUM right.

So where did this board come from?  It was part of the exterior on the old sunroom.  I'm so glad I saved as many pieces as I could for projects.  While my family is bound and determined to burn all scraps, I'm just as bound and determined to hoard all scraps.

I love the font of these cut corrugated metal letters.  They have just the perfect amount of rust - lots! :)   Custom Cut Decor makes all different sizes.  These are the 8" x 10" letters.

 What would you do with your letters from Custom Cut Decor??
