We'll spell it out for you: Decorating with letters and numbers gives everyday items instant personality.

Here's how: Collect old or new pieces, such as signs, printers' blocks, game cards, typography art—anything featuring numbers or letters. Choose a variety of shapes and sizes and arrange on a shelf.
Tip: Flea markets and garage sales are good sources for typographic ephemera, but you can also try online stores such as paper-source.com, etsy.com, and buysignletters.com for new items.
