Anthro-inspired Zinc Letters

Anthropologie has super cute letters out right now.  But we have some even cuter Anthro-inspired Zinc Letters out too (;
What’s not-so-cute is their $18/EACH LETTER price tag.  Yikes! Motivates you to make your own, right? Well, we did… for only $5.39!


Local craftstore’s chipboard letters $1.99/each* . Black acrylic paint . Silver metallic paint . Bristle paintbrush . Sponge paintbrush
*I used a 40% off coupon, total was $5.39; everything else I already had

1. Paint each letter black with sponge brush, covering the letter evenly.
2. After dry, lightly dry brush each letter with the silver metallic paint.
3. After you get the look you love, lightly distress edges black with sponge brush.

Easy right? 
And you just saved almost $50 by Doing It Yourself!
