Etceteras: white on white inspiration

I created this white on white inspiration sign recently. I’m going to hang it over my bulletin board where I hang inspiring photos and project ideas. 

These cute treat jars were the original inspiration for the project. I came across these on Addicted to Decorating and was so intrigued by the raised lettering. The post reveals that the letters are chipboard scrap booking letters spray painted white.

I loved the white on white effect and headed to Pinterest to check out some other ideas. Here are a few that I found. 

1. Beach – Nautical Cottage
2. If I could choose – The Adventures of Mrs. Reagan
3. And they lived happily ever after – Not on the High Street
4. Mixed typeface – HGTV Urban Oasis
5. P.S. I love you – Keep Home Simple

I was ready to get started on my white on white sign. I had all the supplies on hand; chipboard letters, a piece of wood and white spray paint. Here’s what the letters looked like before I painted them.

And here’s the finished sign. I still need to add a picture hanger to the back and hang it over my board but even propped up on a shelf I feel inspired.
