Jump on the letter board bandwagon and get some letter board inspiration and ideas for this HOT home decor trend. Including where to buy them.
Do you love the letter board look as much as I do? I think it's the perfect combination of vintage charm and easily obtainable decor.
Now normally, I go for authentic vintage all the way.
All. The. Way.
But you can pick up one of these letter boards at Walmart, JoAnn Fabrics and even Amazon. And they pretty much look like the original ones that you can find at your local flea market.
Without having to dig around for 14 hours in the hot sun.
And have your mascara melt all over your face.
And drink too many lemon shake ups.
So in the letter board world, I am totally fine with the new-fangled knock offs.
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw my letter board make its debut (a coming out ball of sorts) on the 4th Of July.
I purchased my black letter board at JoAnn Fabrics on sale with a coupon (does anyone buy anything there without a coupon?).
It came with the white letters, but you can also buy packs of colored ones and packs of cute sayings (not in the typical letter board font, but sort of cute anyhow).
And it's been seen at New Year's
and Valentine's Day also.
And WalMart has a small white letter board for right around $10. It comes with black letters.
In my WalMart they were on an endcap by the flower arranging and party supplies.
I'll be honest (I'm dorky like that), the Walmart board letters are a little flimsy, but if you want to save a few bucks they still spell out words just fine!
Need some letter board quotes to get you started?
Here's a few of my favorite letter board quotes:

- My Disney princess name is Taco Belle
- The only marathon I'll ever run is 6 seasons on Netflix
- I was going to throw in the towel, but then I remembered how much laundry I already have
- Tacos are cheaper than therapy
- Stressed is desserts spelled backwards
- Cupcakes are muffins that believed in miracles
- How do I like my eggs? Umm, in a cake.
- Punch today in the face

- Don't grow up. It's a trap.
- Yesterday I really wanted tacos. Now I'm eating tacos. Follow your dreams.

How to store and organize your letter board letters?
The easiest way to organize your letters and keep you from having to hunt through 500 letters just in order to find a "J", is to use a simple and inexpensive bead organizing container. I bought this one from Amazon for around $5.00.

Gail at My RePurposed Life will show you how to DIY your own wooden letter board from scratch. This type of letter board reminds me of the ones hanging on the wall at church when I was a kid!
And lest you think letter boards HAVE to be black or white, Jennifer at Smart Fun DIY made a very festive DIY Felt Letter Board.
Did I say it was VERY festive, or what!
She even made one for Halloween that is candy corn colored.
Shonee at Hawthorne And Main (love that blog name) even made a storage box for her letters. Sure beats my zip lock bag.

I do have a letterboard. I keep it in our entryway with the quote "Home is where my crazies are"...and it's next to a family portrait of the entire family making faces. I love the graphic look of a letterboard and want to get another one, just to change out fun quotes.
So excited for KariAnne!
Now I've gotta have one, I MUST post about a filthy animal! And sorry about your mascara in the past, my previous post mentioned melting my azz on hot leather in Arizona, and I can't imagine shopping for treasures there in the heat!

WOW - love this letterboard inspiration. Now we want one too! Especially love the photography quote. Need to keep our eyes pealed for the deals - thanks for sharing your great ideas.
Nope, I don't think I'll be on this band wagon!

Pam, I adore your letterboards and I'm glad you showed those aqua and red letters that are available at Joanns. I'm seeing a letterboard on our porch in the near future!

Oh man, I must be really ignorant. I didn't even know these were making an appearance, but they are kinda cute, and would be really versatile for decorating.
Love me some letter boards for sure! I love Jennifer's, too...so pretty and colorful! I had no idea Walmart had letters for them...so cool!
So cool! I have one that lights up in my laundry room and it says "Off Duty" even though I'm never off duty ?
i didn't know these letterboards were all the rage. love the idea for spelling out kitchen menus. yours are delightful.
i haven't jumped on the letter board wagon yet but they are super cute!
I don't have one, because I wasn't sure what I would put on it. But, you have given me so many great ideas! On my way out shopping today and I think I need to pick one up. Can't wait to get started.
Yep! Bandwagon. Need it.
I don't have a letterboard yet, I have been stalking the local Wal-Mart but no luck. I'll have to make a trip to Joann!! Thanks for the inspiration ?
I need one of these in my life. I love this round up. Too much fun!
I simply love the letterboard idea! So simple and yet genius! I'm definitely getting one for myself. =))
Love your letterboard! I haven't joined in on this trend...yet. I do love reading all of the fun sayings that everyone comes up with though.
I absolutely love this and I had no idea you could buy them new. Can you tell I don't get out much??? I am going to have to check JoAnn's (I always use a coupon there, too) and WalMart. Thanks so much for the new-vintage inspiration. You always share the coolest ideas.
Thank you for mentioning how your letter board does not have to be black. I can understand how taking the time to learn all you can about how letter boards work can help you choose the best one for your needs. We just moved to a new house and my wife wants to use some letter boards to decorate it, so I'm glad I found your post.
Hi there! I’m looking for another set of the mint colored letters that you got at JoAnns Fabrics several years ago. Any chance you still have them and willing to sell them??
