Flip or Flop's Christina Shares Her Brilliant Hack For Getting Expensive Kitchen Backsplash on a Budget

How Would You . . .

These Giant Orgy Letters ($1,800), which are actually Goodyear Tire sign letters from the 1940s, might give your mother a heart attack if you displayed them as-is in (or outside) your home. But, let's not do that, okay? For this challenge, I'd like you to tell me how you'd use the (ahem) excessively indulgent letters as décor without inflicting cardiac arrest on your relatives and neighbors. Would you rearrange them? Paint them? Separate them? Would you hang them? Lay them down? Mix in other letters? Turn them into furniture so they're less legible? Keep them indoors or outside? Or is there just no way José that you'd ever own them? You know typography is trendy these days . . .

I also thought of arranging them to read "gory" -- but I imagined painting them a messy drippy dark red and placing them above my bedroom door. But I'm a bit dark-humored today. I figured I might otherwise hang them (as "orgy" but haphazardly splashed with a foamy white paint treatment) from the threshold into my kitchen as a measure to keep people OUT while I'm trying to cook! :p

I actually love the idea of using them as a headboard. It's cheeky and hilarious!

Probably paint them each differently then separate them to give to friends with those letters in their initials. I like the idea of placing them randomly around town spelling "orgy" but then photograph or video tape people's reactions...like candid camera.

Hang "YO" on the wall and built a bench that the ends were made out of the G and the Y.

I would rearrange them to spell GORY too! I would probably hang them in one room and put each letter on a separate wall.

I have an aunt who has a room decorated with frogs, so I would paint the "org" green and find an "f" and give it to my aunt to hang in her frog themed room. For the "Y" I would find a huge question mark somewhere and give it to my Philosophy teacher to put in his office.

I would keep them stashed in the trunk of my car, and then place them artfully by bars and clubs I *didn't* want to go to. Once the mad dash is done, I'd collect my letters and casually stroll over to where I actually wanted to go.

I would do one of two things: Put them in the kitchen as is with a crazy pic of luscious food above. Or, I would rearrange them to spell "GORY", paint them (either chartreuse or black, maybe both) and put them in the living room above my painting of ravens in a tree. Actually I like option two better, goes along with my creepy sense of aesthetics.
