The wood has naturally aged thanks to the weather here in South Carolina. Rain, sun, heat, cold...it's been through it all!
I got the urge to craft the other day and decided to make a sign to put inside.
So after finding just a few ideas to spark the creativity, I grabbed my spray paint and got at it! The combination of nap time and a beautiful means this lil' Moma MUST GO OUTSIDE!!!
I quickly realized the paint was soaking into the wood. I was a little worried at first!
I kept at it though and quickly realized what was happening. Because the wood was soaking up so much paint, it was allowing the grain to pop and I was loving it! It almost has an iridescent look to it that doesn't show up in any of my pictures. It's really cool though!
After painting it and letting it dry, I brought it inside to add my word to it. Yes, I did pull out the nail that's in this picture...no worries!
Welcome to the
I love this sign. It cost me pretty much notta to make. I had all of the supplies on hand. I think the transformation of a once fence slat turned seaside glory is pretty awesome. It has a rough yet soft touch that will be perfect above my kitchen sink.
It's not very often that I find time to start and finish a project. I was really glad that I was able to finish this one. Now if I can just get it hung on the wall...
I'll add more when I find more. Happy Tuesday to ya!
