Last week I shared the giant frame my husband made for our mantel. Well you know I can't let wood go to waste so I came up with a plan for some of the extra.
First, I had my handy husband saw off the angled edges to make them straight.
I found some stain in the garage that was used for the bench in our nook as well as the giant frame and stained up the wood.
I should have stained the edges too but just focused on the top and middle of the wood piece.
I used my Silhouette machine and frosted vinyl to create letters for my sign.
I used my DecoArt white paint to cover the sign.
I painted right over the letters and made sure the sides and top were covered in a light coat of white.
After the light coat of white paint, I removed the vinyl letters to reveal the stained wood beneath. Of course, I used my trusty sand block to rough it up a bit.
I hammered in some picture hangers on either side.
Finally, it was complete and I was in love.
I had the perfect place for it right above the toy shelf in the living room.
I love the irony of the sign above the mess of toys. Our life is a beautiful mess and I love it that way.
Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be linking to these fun parties this week.
