Junky Wooden Letters

I have been scrounging letters from thrift stores for a while now, so that I could make the wonderland sign from the Farm Chicks book. I went to Michaels today and picked up the letters I was missing and painted them all up. In the first picture I didn't have the O down, and in the second picture the D was still wet, I painted it white.
 Here is the finished product!!
