Finding A Style You Own – Warby Parker Home Try On Program

Finding A Style You Own Warby Parker Home Try On My last two pairs of prescription glasses have been Warby Parkers and I honestly can’t say enough about them.  The first reason being the convenience of it all.  I sit at home on my computer and pick 5 pairs of glasses that I would like to try on and it comes in the mail free of charge directly to me.  Then I decide which one I want, upload my prescription,  send the others back and voila I am rocking my next stylish pair of glasses.  Secondly, the quality is phenomenal.  There is such a wide variety to choose from and so many different styles and color options.

This year my husband got an infection in his eye and had to be without his contacts for almost two weeks.  To say he was traumatized is an understatement.  He had some glasses that he had never quite adjusted too and did not like the look of.  So he stayed close to home, but it pushed him to invest in some glasses he wouldn’t mind wearing.  And, so he embarked on his journey to find some new specs and to take advantage of the Home Try On Program.  Check out his different choices below. Isn’t he handsome?  OK, I digress, lol.

As humble as he claims to be I think he had fun modeling for me.  Honestly, the hard part comes next because there were so many different looks for him to choose from, but he was finally able to narrow it down to one.

Trend Alert – Over-sized Letters and a Quick DIY!!


For as far back as when my youngest daughter, (now 4) was born, I think I have been obsessed with typography and lettering and the custom/personalized feel  that it brings to Home Decor.  Over the last couple of years, I think that I have become enamored with over-sized letters specifically.  And… so the hunt began.  Of course I would see them EVERYWHERE.  But, the catch is always the same, either they don’t have the letters that I am looking for, I can’t find the size I need, or the price is astronomical. (Or at least as far as this Momma is concerned)

So… I was at my 2nd Favorite Fabric Store….. you guessed it,  Joann’s Fabric on a totally unrelated quest, when I ran smack dab into these HUGE Cardboard Letters, which of course were going to come home with me.


Admittedly, I had no idea what was next, because as much as I was stalking all the Over-sized Letter pins  on Pinterest.  My intention was to buy them and not to turn it into a DIY Project.  Naturally, you would think the next step would have been to look up directions.  But, NOPE.   I decided to go home and see what I already had in my Craft Closet (also known, as the JUNK CLOSET).  SCORE!!

I sprayed the letters with Krylon Short Cuts Hobby Craft Paint.  And, to be honest, I loved that look and could have just left it at that.  It had a leathery rustic look.  But, since the A was actually an addition to my dh’s office decor.  It had to tie into the Chalkboard Walls, that are soon to come.


What do you think?? I like it Brown.

I know that there should be a picture of the final step with the Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Chalk Board Paint.  But, I had to download all my pics from my iPhone to make room for the iOS 8 upgrade.

Here is the completed project!! As you can see it hasn’t made it to its intended home yet, because Hubby’s Office is still a work in progress.  All in all, the whole project probably cost me no more than $7.00.

Who can be mad at that??  Have you decorated any spaces in your home with Lettering?  What was your favorite project?  I’d love to hear about it!!
