Rated 5 out of 5
Â by kdel Very cute, and look just as pictured. They are a great price for the quality, even though the hardware is not included. However, I simply used gold colored nails to hang the letters up on drywall and they are holding just fine with bags and beach towels! The gold looks cute and even silver in my opinion, so not having matching hardware should not be a problem... if you think it is, then simply purchase off-white paint and touch up your screws/ nail heads.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MonicaJ Love These! Go with everything
I LOVE these. I rated these a 4 and not a 5 in Aesthetic/Design for one reason: The font changes every few years. I purchased initials in 2000, 2003, 2008, and am purchasing another one now in 2010. My 2000/2003 are Arial font, not Sans Serif. I like the newer ones better. :o)

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LSChip Color varies
These hooks are adorable, perfectly sized, and great quality. The only problem I've had is that the color varies a lot from letter to letter. For example, I ordered D-R-Y for my laundry room. The "D" arrived much darker (like a stone color) than the other two letters (which were off-white). I thought maybe it was a one-time variation, so Anthropologie kindly sent me another one with free shipping. The second "D" arrived with the same color, so I realize it's just the way they are designed to have a flea market appeal.
I wish they all matched, but the overall look is still great. The slightly worn finish has a nice vintage quality without looking cheap. I plan to still use them, and just coat with a clear satin Rustoleum spray to protect against water in that room since they are iron.
Also, the hooks have three holes each to mount to a wall, but they don't come with hardware so be prepared to seek out some screws. They aren't too heavy so I think they will mount easily. All in all, a great find, but don't expect them to match perfectly.
