Reclaimed Wood Monogram and a Giveaway!

Love this weathered wood monogram from Ava Berry Lane over the tv in this cozy family room

Today’s post is brought to you by the letter E.

E is for ecstatic.

That’s how I feel about this amazing reclaimed wood monogram that was custom made for me by Kathryn of Ava Berry Lane.

As soon as it arrived on my doorstep, I ripped open the package and carried the monogram all around the house, upstairs & downstairs (I burned 147 calories) trying to find the perfect place for it.

It looked great in my kitchen …

Love the texture of the old wood planks on this monogram

but I finally settled on giving it a prominent place in my family room.

Love this cozy family room and the wood monogram over the tv

Best part is that the monogram is completely customizable.

I looked at pics in the Ava Berry Lane gallery to get some ideas and told her I wanted a mix of weathered wood with some white.

She nailed it!

She’ll even paint a year on the piece – “est 1995” to commemorate a special date.

LOVE this rustic wood monogram - it's completely customizable - you can choose wood colors and more

E is for euphoria!

  51. I would have to have a J to include my family. Love the whitewash and for some reason that pink was calling my name along with the natural wood. Really nice pieces.

  58. That’s gorgeous! I would choose a “W” with est 1987. White washed and reclaimed wood. So unique!

  59. E is for Everything….I loved everything!!…but when I saw the “S” that appears at the very beginning, I felt I did not need to go further, but of course I had to look at Each and Every beautiful thing…and then the “You are My Sunshine” got to me!…Extraordinary items!…Great giveaway!

  60. Every one of Kathryn’s creations is a beauty! I love them all….
    Like you, one of her monogram would be great in any room of my house!!! I think I would have to go with white that I would have flexibility of placement & it would always fit, regardless of room color. I’d prefer wide boards, reclaimed white wood, with a letter J. And if possible, maybe a laurel wreath encircling the monogram, similar to what is shown with her Prov 31 pallet board piece. That would look phenomenal~!!!!!

  61. I like the colors of the “B” but our last initial is “W”. I would love to have our last name behind the letter like “Logan” is behind the “L”. So creative!!

  62. The custom monogram sign made out of reclaimed wood is definitely my favorite item from her shop! Especially the ones with all the different finishes (like yours!).

  63. I love the unique finish of each piece. I would get a G using the Duck Egg and Champagne Metallic colors.

  64. These are all so beautiful! I would LOVE a whitish “W” on reclaimed wood, with “est 1985” to celebrate our 30th anniversary this summer.

  68. Love these! I would do J and I would include pieces of teal and white painted wood. Thanks for the fun!

  69. Absolutely love these monograms. I’ve been looking and looking for something different and I’ve finally found it. I wouldn’t change a thing about her sample “B” on her website, it’s just what would fit perfectly in my home. Your home is beautiful, the perfect retreat to unwind and to recharge. Thank you so much for sharing it.

  70. Gorgeous monogram! I would want one exactly like yours…except with a “C”, and established in 1974…about the time of the dinosaurs! Thanks for the opportunity! 😉

  71. These are fantastic!! I would want a round one – mostly different wood tones with a mix of blue – and the letter M.

  73. Oh my so many to choose from but I think a white washed circle with a B on it for my daughters anniversary would be great. Thank you for introducing us to her art and giving us a chance to win a piece.

  74. So pretty! I would choose the letter D in the reclaimed wood with some of the turquoise/aqua wood mixed in.

  77. The letter S (established 2015). Just bought our dream home. Well almost. It’s a fixer upper, but the location is amazing. We will finally be on the lake. Granted it’s going to be a lot of work to up date it. But the end results will be worth it. I’m starting with a fresh pallet, and want to make our home bright, cheerful and relaxing.

  78. I LOVE her work!!! My favorite monogram that she does is the thin slat 24″ that is white and distressed! I would get an H and an est. 2011. I also love the idea of having a natural/ dark wood Sign with two strips of pink wood and the letter P with the name paisley spelt out through the P for my baby girls room. Her work is AH-mazing!

  79. I think I would choose a mixture of weathered wood with white as well. I would want a G and it to say est. 1991

  80. I love these!! I would choose the W just like the one on their Instagram with white/cream & light blue! It is gorgeous!!! I would absolutely love to win it!
