Happy Fall everyone! One of my Fall projects this year was to do a mini-makeover of my living room to give it some warmth and character. In my last post, I shared the DIY Weathered White Wood Plank wall that I put up. After the plank wall went up, we decided to hang the TV on the wall to give us more space in our living room. But, since the ceiling in that room is vaulted, I had to have something above the TV to add to the rustic charm and to avoid a large blank wood panel wall. I decided to create a DIY rustic wood HOME sign with a eucalyptus wreath for the letter “o”.
