Today I thought we'd take a break from Con-Man's Big Boy room and share another fun sign that I made. I had scored these 2 pieces of old barn wood for free a few months ago.
I painted the rectangular one already and had been waiting for inspiration for the arched one. And the other day inspiration came. Since it is rather large I thought making it functional instead of just a plain old sign. So I made it into a coat hanger!
After prepping the wood in the same manner I did my "Home Sign." Then using my Silhouette I made the Welcome Template and printed it out on contact paper. (it's hard to see since it's clear.) This is the first time I used contact paper with the Silhouette and it worked really well. And it worked really well during painting- my edges came out very crisp.
I used DecoArts Craft paint~
Then painted the wording~ I took the contact paper off before the paint could dry all the way as to not risk any of the paint peeling off.
Ta Dah! I gave the wording a light sanding and sealed it.
Then it was time for the hooks. I used painters tape to make sure they were aligned and even.
Then all done!
Now I just need to figure out where to hang it!
How was everyone else's weekend? Any fun projects to report?
