Hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day! With my husband out of town for work the kids and I just hung out and ate way too many sweets!
I also found time yesterday to make something I've been wanting to do for awhile, a wood sign for our kitchen. I've been pinning signs on Pinterest and stalking them on Etsy. I finally decided to just go for it!
I started by giving my board a light coat of white paint. I just used simple craft paint for this project. The white will be the color of my lettering.
I used my Cricut machine to cut out my vinyl letters. They make vinyl specifically for the Cricut machine. Normally $9.99 at Michael's I used my 50% off coupon to get it for half.
I arranged my letters where I wanted them on the board, then peeled off the backing and adhered them to the board.
Then I painted over top of the letters with the black paint. Thanks to my youngest for helping out with the photography!
I let the paint dry and then carefully peeled the vinyl letters off. This part was soooo much fun! My girls just stood there watching they were so impressed!
That's it! I was surprised at how smoothly the project went. I kept waiting for something to go wrong.
Now I just have to get some picture hangers to attach to the back so I can actually hang it on the wall. Right now it's just propped on top of my kitchen cabinets, but I'm really enjoying it there.
Now that I've conquered this sign my head is spinning with more ideas!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
