When a local antique store had a liquidation sale, I spotted this “Dr. Syntax” sign and had to have it. It’s a window that went over double doors. Since it’s glass, the letters wouldn’t show up if I just put it on my blue wall. To make the words pop, I painted the wall under it. It’s very very heavy, so I recruited a burly helper to hold it while I installed brackets into the studs. I must trust my abilities, since it hangs over my bed!
(I have my petticoat poof hung from the ceiling to keep it out of the way, but it also visually balances out the white of the window on the other side of the sign.)
