DIY Metal Letter Industrial Kitchen Sign

The easiest DIY metal letter kitchen sign - could make for any room of your house. Super easy & quick to make to add that industrial farmhouse charm.

Last week Michaels had a sale that sucked me in. How many times have I said that? Too many to count! Anyways, the sale was a good one. The items I wanted were already 40% off plus they had an additional 20% off your entire order. Ummm yes please. So I walked my happy butt into Michaels to find some metal letters for our kitchen & as I layer out all the letters onto the floor I realized I was missing the “T” in “Kitchen” & I mildly freaked out. I looked on all the shelves & even asked the employees if they were going to get any more letters in. After learning that they might not, they told me that the Michael’s thirty minutes from my house had one so you know that I drove all the way out there to pick it up. Of course that Michaels has a Homegoods next to it so I HAD to stop there as well. The struggle is real. Anyways, I was so excited that I finally had my letter T to make my DIY industrial kitchen sign with & this past weekend I finally put it together. It’s super easy to make so I just had to share it with you guys.

Seriously cute right? Like I said, this was the easiest project ever & just added a fun element to the space above our sink. I think it adds that industrial farmhouse look & I’m of course on board with that. No pun intended. First I simply cut a board the size of the space above the sink that also fit all of the letters purchased at Michaels. I got lucky and the space was just big enough for the full word. Really lucky. I painted the board white, the same color as our wall behind the board, but you could paint the board any color you wanted. I also chose to mount the letters on a board first, but you could also just mount them directly to the wall if you feel like. Side note: I know I bought these letters that were already metal & ready to go, but you can find letters like this many places & also I have a tutorial [here] on how you can make your own.

Please excuse my nighttime cell phone photos, but that is when I do all my project right? I laid the letters out on the board as shown above, marked off the board with a pencil & made a few cuts so the board fit the letters perfect. After the board was cut & painted I placed screws in the board to hang the letters from. To hang the board on the wall I actually didn’t do much. The board was so tight between the trim that it squeezed tightly & secure in there. You could add a hanger to the back simply with any picture hanger system that you like. Hopefully this whole process made some sense. It was super easy & I think you need to make yourself a kitchen sign now!



I’m loving how our DIY metal letter sign came out & I think it adds a fun pop in our small kitchen. What do you think of it? We have a lot to do in our kitchen yet, but it’s so much fun being able to take our time in this house. The military life really always made us feel rushed because we might be moved at any time, but now we feel permanent & at home. It’s a really good feeling.

    Great look for the space and it really goes well with the light fixture! I would have never thought of it, but of course, that is why I love LIZ MARIE !!!!

    Hi Liz! I love the sign. I have something similar that I’m working on for our remodeled dining room. Question for you though – where, oh where did you find your coffee mug tree? I covet that thing. If I had to take a good guess though…I’m thinking HG? 🙂

      Good old World Market!! They are super cheap & we have two of them because I’m obsessed too!! Hope that helps & thank you so much for the sweet comment!! xx

    I am DYING!!!!!! That is so cute!!!! I swear if I bring any more letters into my house my hubs will have a fit.. but this would be so cute anywhere!!

    Oh I love this!! I just picked up a few of those letters from Michael’s last week as well! I got letters to spell out our last name, but haven’t found the perfect spot in our home for them just yet. 🙂 love your blog!

    So cute, Liz!! I purchased an “M” a couple of weeks ago to display in our guest bathroom. They are really cute letters, and cheap! I was wondering if you have considered adding knobs to your cabinets? I think black knobs would really make the cabinets pop! 🙂

    It seems like serendipity! Those very letters fit the space they were intended for EXACTLY! Missing a “T”? Not a problem, it was meant for a “T” to be found just a short drive away. I think your KITCHEN sign was looking for you rather than you hunting for it!


    The letters are great and really make an awesome addition to your kitchen. I am really crushing on your farm sink and the light above. I am sure you really enjoy this space. I know what you mean with Michael’s, I would also probably drive to another store to find that special something I was looking for.

    love it! I’m just recovering from some evil sickness and the sun is out so cabin fever has set in! There’s a fabulous junk shop a town away from here that sells a variety of metal letters I”ve been meaning to visit! Now I have inspiration to do so!

    I love your kitchen countertops! We are building a home and I’m using white shaker cabinets with white subway tile w/gray grout and we’re still searching for a marble look alike countertop. Can you tell me what yours are? Thanks! 🙂

    1. Joy

      These countertops look identical to the marble look-alike I chose for our new house! It’s a quartz, LG Viatera Rococo. Liz didn’t respond, but I would bet money they are the same! Looks beautiful!!

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
