I (Lauren) live directly across the hall from Loren. Last semester I decided that I needed to commemorate the fact that our names differ only in the first vowel sound, and made these periodic table signs to mark our respective rooms.
The backs are laser-cut out of 3mm plywood, and the letters are cut from 6mm plywood; all the pieces are glued on and painted with ordinary acrylic paint. (It’s a little hard to tell, but I did use metallic gold paint for the Au sign.) It was a quick little project, and the hardest part of the whole thing was picking a font.
Loren, not to be outdone, also made this regex sign to attach to the ceiling between our rooms:
Now we just have to figure out how to solve the issue of us both answering whenever anyone shouts “Lauren!” or “Loren!” down the hall.
