I hope everyone had a great weekend!
The weather here was fantastic!
The kids were outside all weekend!
I am trying to get a few things done inside the house before we move outside to start our landscaping.
So instead of papercrafts, you get a view of some wood art!
I was inspired by this sentiment that I found on Pinterest....Sentiment Idea
Here are my steps:
I gathered some wood, glued and nailed it together, then stained it in a dark walnut.
I sanded the edges and spots on the top and worked in some Martha Stewart metallic paint.
While the stain dried, I cut out some stenciled letters with my cricut.
I used several different fonts. This took some time to figure out what would work!
Next I taped my stencils down and used a cream and teal acrylic paint.
Before the paint was completely dried, I pulled the stencil off to make sure no paint leaking underneath!
I had a few spots where the paint leaked, so I quickly removed it while it was still wet.
Once the paint was dried overnight, I took my sand paper and sanded over the paint to distress it.
You can do this as much or as little as you want!
Once everything was completely dried and how I wanted it, I sprayed it with a coat of clear acrylic.
Lastly, I added a twine flower, I found the tutorial on Pinterest, and teal button.
Here is my finished product hanging in my mud room!
