When my son was a little boy I hand painted little wooden letters that I purchased at Michaels to spell his name, G-R-A-N-T. These were placed on a little shelf over his bed and each night he liked to spell out his name before going to sleep. Little did I know at that time that typography would be a huge trend in years to come. While it has been around for a while and may soon be cooling down, I still like this trend a lot and often bookmark images that contain the use of letters and words as wall art. Generally, the ideas I see are ones that could be duplicated inexpensively but don't look run of the mill.

Vintage shops and antique stores are good resources for salvaged metal letters.
Wooden letters covered in scrapbook papers are all it takes to get the look you see in the kitchen on the set of Cougar Town. Blogger Modern Jane featured a similar project completed by a friend. (See below.)
