I receive dozens of questions on this post thanks to Pinterest! I encourage you to read through the comments to answer your questions!
Do you ever see a project that you see that you get a little giddy about doing? Well, this one made me giddy. I have long looked for the right for my house, but they were too big, too little, wrong font or just not right for my house. I knew the spot that I wanted to put something but it needed to big but not overpowering. Then I came across this link. It was the right size and of course it meant crafting. So, my hunt for the giant M began. My JoAnn’s only had a a giant Q left and so I was left to order it online, but the M was sold out. Later than week it came back in stock and I eagerly ordered it only to have my order canceled two days later when it was out of sold out. This was weeks ago and then last week I got an email saying it was back in stock. Again, I ordered it right away, but not with so much anticipation because I was pretty sure my order would just get canceled again and then I got a knock at my door and my heart fluttered a little bit when I saw the box. My urban myth initial really existed. The prince was asleep when the box came so I had a solid hour and a half to make copies of my favorite pictures. I found it best to copy the pictures my my printers draft setting, it made them a little lighter and easier to see, plus it saved ink! I mod podged the pictures on and carefully worked on the edges and then made a thin layer of mod podge over the whole thing. End of story, love it!
Here is the side view:
And here is a better picture of the scale all 23.5 inches of its glory and where it lives happily in my entry way.
