The large letters are great for making a statement on a wall or shelf like Sarah’s. Her entire living room is gorgeously decorated, but my eyes were immediately drawn over to the sign.
While hunting for nursery bedding, Décor Chick Emily instead stumbled upon some crossword puzzle wall décor that would make a great addition to the room.
