If you follow my blog regularly, you’ve seen that I’ve been working on a monogram gallery wall collection for my mantel by making several diy monogram letters. I’m happy to share with the finished project!
I’ve numbered all the Monogram Letter H’s in the photo above with descriptions and links to projects or purchase notes below.

- Letter Press H’s – I purchased these from Etsy. 6 vintage letter press letters in varying heights.

There are a few other projects I’ve posted about previously in the mantel gallery as well. Button Flowers which are next to the Aged Paint Letter and then the Double Framed Family Tree in the center. Not to be left out, I restained our mantel during this process as well. I’m so happy that things match a little better now.
Some of my favorite elements of the mantel gallery aren’t new. The wedding pictures you see on the shelves on the right side and the silver plated H were from our wedding. We had all of our immediate family members’ wedding photos printed in black and white and displayed at our guest book table at our wedding – parents, siblings, and our grandparents. At the time we got married all of our grandparents were still alive, and it was really important to us to honor that and hold up the example they had shown us about successful marriages. It’s still such a special reminder that we have always displayed them prominently in our house. See below for a picture of the display at our wedding. At the time we just had our engagement picture, which has since been replaced with our own wedding picture.
