This week I found these totally customizable wood blocks from MeMakeStuff on Etsy.com. The blocks are hand painted and distressed to give them a wonderful worn and weathered look. The awesome part is that the wood is salvaged, so it is getting a new lease on life! Yay for upcycling! I could easily envision using these Alphabet Blocks in a kids room, either up on the wall or just sitting pretty on a bookshelf!
Or maybe you need a changeable message board?
Or house numbers?
